A Guide to First Friday November

First Friday_Nov_Yarn BombingNovember’s First Friday features yarn bombing, poetry slamming and a live band on Main Street. Here’s a guide to Nyack Art Collective‘s monthly cultural festival.

Yarn Bombing is a form of street art using colorful displays of knitted & crocheted yarn and fabric. If you want to see trees and benches covered in color or have a chance to put your crochet needles to work, come to the corner of Cedar St. and Main Street on Friday, Nov. 1. You should bring finished pieces, but if not, and you knit quick, there will be some yarn.

Suffern Poets will be located throughout the village, breaking into verse near First Friday venues.

The STAC House Band will perform live at the Main Street Gazebo.
