Welcome to Westfield on Weekends!

WOW! We are so pleased that you have landed here in the land of community happenings! Westfield on Weekends has been whipping up good times and creative activities in Whip City for more than 12 years. As usual, our all- volunteer board has been hard at work fashioning a calendar of events that will bring folks together to celebrate  the historical richness of our great city and its people!

With this new, more manageable, more colorful and more informative website, all the WOWsters hope that you will discover a world of family fun in Westfield.

Community happens in Westfield and there is no better time than during Dickens Days – WOW’s premiere event that is inspired by Charles Dickens, his spirits and the Victorian Age...  Discover  Dickens Days by going to www.DickensDays.com or by following the links on this site.  

Make plans for a wonderful season, which this year includes the Lanternlight Parade and Mayor’s Treelighting ceremony on Saturday, November 28; the "Dickens of a Day" Historic House Tour which returns by popular demand  on Sunday, December 6; and the popular Dickens Dinners, featuring “A Christmas Carol” between the courses of a Victorian feast  in the  Carriage House at the Genesis  Center on Friday and Saturday, December 18 and 19.

There’s also lots happening at WOW’s community space at the Rinnova Gallery at 105 Elm Street: holiday workshops and continuing classes at Westfield Creative Arts, as well as a sale in the WOW shoppe that will have the Fezziwigs dancing  a jig.

We look forward to celebrating this joyous season with you beginning November 28th!
