Willimantic Records turns five years old on February 11, 2017

Willimantic Records celebrates its fifth anniversary with a new  art exhibition:
Dubious Moments in Music History - watercolors by Gabriella Svenningsen

Music provided by Allysen Callery and The Mountain Movers.

The shop will be open 11am to 7pm. 

Live music should start sometime around three o’clock.  

Two other events also happening in town on February 11th, and definitely worth checking out, are the Willimantic Food Co-op's 37th Birthday Party and the annual Romantic Willimantic Chocolate Festival. And don't forget the mighty Bench Shop turns 50 this year.  There are plenty of choice restaurants within walking distance, so why not treat yourself to an afternoon in the Thread City.

Saturday afternoon poetry presented by the Anti-division League

at Willimantic Records
January 28, 2017

Free Admission              Starts at 2pm

Several Hartford area wordsmiths, along with a few Thread City heroes, will share their poetry with any soul fortunate enough to wander within earshot.
So please do wander by.

 Presented by the Anti-division League
Based in Hartford, CT, the Anti-Division League (AdL) is a culturally diverse group of artists dedicated to promoting social justice and addressing inequality through community bridging arts events. The AdL moves to create a platform 
for the disenfranchised. Though we are all different, 
together we will make a difference.

As we see it, our overall goal is to change the culture in which we live; to extend the possibilities of diversity and inclusion by moving them from trending topics of discussion, to the norm of human interaction. These ideas will be so central to our mindset that acting with compassion towards those who are “different” from us becomes inherent as opposed to something rare or forced. We know that when we as humans communicate empathically, we face the undeniable truth that we are all integrally connected and that what affects one affects us all

Live music starts sometime around 6:30pm on Wednesday, January 11, 2017
