Christmas in July
No cover | 5-9 p.m.
Have you ever wondered what Santa would look like in shorts? You’ll see it at HoneyBear Farms’ Christmas in July celebration, which features a dunk tank, snow cones, a balloon artist, Santa on the guitar, a candy cane hunt and — how could you not — snow in summer. Get your snack on with pop-up vendors and food trucks. This event is also scheduled from Saturday from 4-9 p.m., although the weather is looking frightful.

Two Weeks Notice: Alexis ‘STIX’ Brown Closing Reception
Carnegie Center for Art and History
Free | 5-8 p.m.
If you read our Studio Visit feature about Alexis ‘STIX’ Brown’s residency at the Carnegie Center in our issue this week, you’ll probably be sad to know that her stay at the museum is almost over. But, you’ll be happy to hear that you still have a chance to visit and meet the artist. Brown will be at this two-weeks-to-closing-reception to talk about her work, where “anxiety is channeled into lines.” The band Squeeze-bot is also bringing its accordions, banjos and tubas to entertain the crowd, and light refreshments will be served.
