Submit your event/s. Note that we limit event listings mainly to free or inexpensive public events in Wellesley, such as talks, films, theatre productions, concerts, etc. This is not a place for businesses to promote themselves, their classes, etc. Please don’t submit events that run for weeks and weeks. We approve event listings before they go live, typically within 24 hours.
No business sales, trunk shows, etc. (those would be paid advertisements). Please go easy on the ALL CAPS, exclamation points!!!!, etc.
We also appreciate any contributions to support our independent journalism venture.
Thanks, Deborah & Bob

At this year’s event, participants can complete one lap around the Babson College campus for a 1.5-mile walk or two laps for a 3-mile walk. Check-in begins at 9:00 am, opening ceremonies start at 9:30 am, and the walk begins at 10:00 am. Adult walkers (ages 10 and up) can register for $40; student walkers (college students) for $20; youth walkers (ages 3-9) for $10; two and under can join for free; dogs (on leash) are also welcome.
Walker registration includes an event t-shirt, a special gift, refreshments and a post-walk celebration with DJ entertainment and family-friendly activities such as lawn games, a bouncy house, face painting, a balloon artist and more.
