The Weekend Guide for Oct 6th – 8th, 2017

Who says Maine can only be fun during the summer? So far, Fall is pretty much killing it as well, and that won’t be changing this weekend!


It’s Foundation First Friday at Nosh! On your way through the First Friday Art Walk, stop in and try the flavors of the month from Foundation Brewing Co. and enjoy yourself some sustenance, you know, to get you through the rest of the walk… We start pouring at 4!

While you’re out and about on Congress Street, check out the Matisyahu with Common Kings & Orphan at the State Theatre! Tickets are $26 in advance and doors open at 7!

For a low key night, join the Portland Slow Riders for a Harvest Moon bike ride through Monument Square! The moon will shine down, but don’t forget your bike light just in case! The ride starts at 7 pm!

If you’re less in the mood for music and more in the mood for a show, check out a classic musical Jersey Boys at the Merrill Auditorium! This award-winning musical is only in town for one night, and the show starts at 8!

Also starting at 8- don’t miss the epic dancefloor party with Moses, Yung Abner, and Mr. Dereloid at Rhum! Get tiki twisted to some intense bass-house, funk, and weird-bass hip-hop!
