Thursday nights will heat up in March as Santa Clarita’s popular Thursdays @ Newhall series, presented by Galpin Subaru, returns to Old Town Newhall on March 5. Several new and returning events will be held on Thursday nights from March through October, including a weekly rotation of ArtSLAM, a new Revved Up car show, SENSES, the ARTree 2015 Speaker Series and the SCVTV Presents OutWest Concert Series.
On the first Thursday of each month from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., ArtSLAM will combine forces with JAM Sessions to celebrate art, music and movement. ArtSLAM features art installations by local artists. JAM Sessions is an interactive series inviting residents to release their inner artist through tango, salsa, drumming, square dance and much more. All ArtSLAM is free and open to the public.
The Thursdays @ Newhall series cruises on with Revved Up, a free themed car show held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month. Each event will feature a different genre of top quality cars, plus a live DJ, food trucks and a beer and wine garden for adults.
