Art on Bay
This Saturday, December 10th, the SI Makerspace collective are throwing their annual Makerspace maker Market. The event promotes the idea of local people creating local goods and art. The Makerspace has built a reputation in the last few years as Staten Island’s premiere destination for allowing those that want to get their hands dirty and create to do just that.
Today, Saturday December 3rd, marks the 2016 Minthorne Street Winter Festival. The event where live music, food, art, and games collide into a delightful afternoon of activity and holiday shopping for the entire Staten Island community.
The Sundog Theatre is celebrating the holiday season with a special performance of “A Christmas Carol,” and the 2017 Scenes From The Staten Island Ferry, a one-act play submission contest.
The ever-persistent nostalgia wave is hitting the borough hard in the form of Boy Band Review, the country’s greatest boy band tribute show. On December 10, Boy Band Review will be headed to Liberty Tavern, located at 382 Forest Avenue, for a night of “Dirty Pop” and dancing.
This past month, Staten Island’s own Nani Castle and Producer Udachi teamed up for a hot new track called ‘Crying in the Dark.’
