Get ready to eat, dance and rock this June as the Thursdays @ Newhall event series, presented by Galpin Subaru, returns with the fourth installments of Art SLAM, J.A.M. Sessions and SENSES.
Tonight, the most fragrant Art SLAM of the year will showcase one of the culinary world’s most distinctive ingredients: Garlic! Chefs from across Santa Clarita will offer FREE samples of their most delectable garlic-infused treats, from garlic bread, hummus and ice cream to mashed potatoes, and Rugelach. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. on Main Street in Old Town Newhall.
The interactive musical movement J.A.M. Sessions will liven up Main Street on Thursday, June 12, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with the moves of Japanese Folk Dance and Music. Christine Inouye will demonstrate how to perform this rhythmic dance with the use of traditional fans as Minyo Station provides the sounds of Japanese folk fusion. This FREE session is presented in partnership with the Ford Theatre Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation and the City of Santa Clarita. To learn more, visit FordJamSessions.org.
