WESTERLY: Downtown Shutdown Live!

Save the date for the third annual Downtown Shutdown of Downtown Westerly-Pawcatuck!

On September 26 from 5-10pm, the streets of Downtown will be open to food and festivities for all ages! More than 2,500 people arrived last year to enjoy food, drinks, live music and family-friendly activities throughout Downtown.

Bars and restaurants will move into the streets serving food, beer and wine with each trying to outdo the other with creative outdoor spaces. There will be two concert stages, a late evening headliner and live music throughout Downtown. The night will be filled with family-friendly activities, from cupcake decorating, painting and pottery to chalk art and science exhibitions.

The night's headliner will be Sugar!

Share this event and invite your friends for a one-of-a-kind night in Downtown Westerly-Pawcatuck! More details on music, food, vendors and activities to come!

Savoy Bookshop & Café will set up a dedicated kids' area during Downtown Shutdown Live!, so stop by and enjoy this free community event!

From 5:00 to 7:00, local children's author Debbi Michiko Florence will sign copies of her chapter books (including the Jasmine Toguchi series and the My Furry Foster Family books) and chat with kids about her writing.

From 6:00 to 7:30, three princesses from Pretty as a Princess—the Snow Sisters and Princess Beauty—will visit Savoy, singing songs, telling stories and taking photos with the kids.

That whole evening, we will have a make-your-own bookmark station set up, along with some free coloring pages they can take home. Lots of books and toys will be available for purchase.
