Celebrate the season with us at October-FamilyFest

Now: Sunday October 22, 2:00PM-5:00PM

Tickets required, $20 adults, kids free.

Join us at the Wakefield Arboretum for a family-friendly afternoon of local beer, delicious food, live music, s'mores, zucchini races, pumpkin carving and fun for everyone at October-FamilyFest. Tickets include entrance to the gardens, food (brats) and one free pour from Barrel House Z, a small-batch beer brewer from Weymouth, MA.

Electric Standard will be returning to bring us rock, blues and soul with the sound, spirit and enthusiasm of the original rock 'n' roll combos. Formed in 2015, the Boston-area trio initially began as a cover band, interpreting songs from a wide range of eras and genres through a roots-rock sensibility. The band's latest album, Lady Luck & the Grand Vizier, was produced with Bill Mason at Second Story Studios. Released in 2023, the album shows Electric Standard expanding its sonic range to include an even wider range of blues, folk and pop styles.

Join in the fun of pumpkin carving. Bring a pumpkin, go home with a jack-o-lantern, leave the mess here (our chickens will thank you!) You can bring your own pumpkin or purchase one from us for $5.00. Make sure to select the "pumpkin ticket" when you register.

Trees are an extremely important part of combating climate change. They also play a key role in supporting our ecosystems. Come to the library on Tuesday, September 26th for a presentation by staff from the Wakefield Arboretum on choosing the right tree to plant in your yard, how to plant it and maintain it. Registration for this in-person program is required and will open three weeks in advance of the event.

This program is part of Milton Grows: a year-long initiative for all ages focused on gardening and sustainability. Funded by the federal Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the MBLC, and supported by our partners Sustainable Milton and the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
