Enjoy delicious and authentic Greek food at the Newburyport Greek Food Festival at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church located at 7 Harris street in Newburyport as they celebrate their 100 Year Anniversary. The Festival will run from 11:30 am – 9 pm on Friday, July 27th and Saturday, July 28th as well as 11:30 am – 4 pm on Sunday, July 29th. There will be live Greek music by OPA Entertainment on Friday and Saturday evening from 5 –  9 pm.

I know I am not the only local resident who eats at the Newburyport Greek Food Festival three days in a row to get my fix of delicious homemade Greek food! You will be delighted by all the Greek entrees including gyros, lamb shanks, moussaka, chicken and lamb kabobs, keftethes (meatballs), spinach pie, pastichio, stuffed grape leaves, Greek salad as well as Greek pastries and more! You can purchase food to eat on the run, such as a Gyro, or you can take your time and sit down for a relaxing meal outside or inside the air-conditioned church hall. My recommendation to my fellow foodies, is not to wait until the last day of the Festival to visit, because some of the most popular items may be sold out!

For those of us who look forward to the Greek Food Festival every year, there is great news. The feasting does not have to end after three days! The Newburyport Greek Food Festival has expanded! The Annunciation Church Gyro Cart will be open from Monday, July 30th through Sunday, August 5th. Look for the cart on Inn Street and enjoy those gyros all week long during Yankee Homecoming.

While the Greek Food Festival is not an official Yankee Homecoming Event, many folks have made a tradition of savoring this incredible food as they kick off Yankee Homecoming week.

The Newburyport Greek Food Festival is a fundraiser for Annunciation Church and all of the food is prepared and served by church members. How many times will you visit the Newburyport Greek Food Festival and the downtown Gyro Carts during Yankee Homecoming to enjoy delicious homemade Mediterranean cuisine?

Every summer, Circus Smirkus kids ages 10 to 18, go on the road preforming 70 shows in 7 weeks, for sell-out crowds in a 750 seat European-style one-ring big top tent.  It is amazing to watch the determination, dedication and passion of these kids.  Although they all work very hard to achieve their ambitious goals, it is apparent that they are loving every minute of what they do, and developing strong friendships and team building skills that will carry them far in life.

Each year brings a new Circus Smirkus storyline and original full-length show combining the best in traditional and contemporary circus styles.  Vaudeville, is a celebration of the grand American tradition of variety entertainment, popular in the early 20th century featuring a mixture of specialty acts such as burlesque, comedy, song and dance. Come experience this highly anticipated big top show. The hilarious clowns are guaranteed to keep you laughing, and you’ll be in awe of the astonishing aerialists, wondrous wirewalkers, mystifying magicians, and jovial jugglers.

You can purchase Circus Smirkus tickets online using a credit card, or in Newburyport at Eureka Toys using either cash or check only.

Circus Smirkus performances run 2 hours in length including the intermission, so if you planning to attend the Saturday evening performance you can still make it to downtown Newburyport to catch the Yankee Homecoming Fireworks display after the show.

There is plenty of seating for Circus Smirkus, but tickets do not have assigned seat numbers so we recommend showing up at least 30-45 minutes prior to the show, especially if you are a large group looking to sit together.  At the end of the show you may want to account for an extra 10 – 15 minutes, as there is opportunity to meet the stars and even get a few autographs.

Ticket Prices:
Adults (13+): $23
Child (2-12): $19
Babies – (< 2) FREE

Circus Smirkus is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization helping youth engage in life changing adventures while promoting the circus arts.  If you would like to support Circus Smirkus efforts there are many ways you can help all of which are greatly appreciated.

Theater in the Open has been a vital part of the Northshore’s cultural landscape for 37 years bringing theater performances to the public, at no cost, in the beauty of Maudslay State Park and connecting children with art and nature through our beloved youth arts education programs.  Please consider supporting Theater in the Open and helping to strengthen the local arts for young aspiring actors in Greater Newburyport.

Newburyport Historic Tours – The Best Walking Tours

Hosted by Untapped History – You’ll Laugh, You’ll Learn, You’ll Drink!

A Lively Tour of Newburyport History

This summer, try something new and different: fun historic tours of Newburyport followed by snacks and cocktails inspired by the city’s history. Untapped History, one of the city’s walking tours, is run by local historians Eric Getz and Alex Cain, is just that. These two teachers who call themselves “history nerds,” go by the motto “you’ll laugh, you’ll learn, you’ll drink,” and they achieve that by concluding their walking tours at a waterfront Newburyport restaurant, where attendees try a sampling of appetizers and cocktails that have been enjoyed through the city’s four hundred-year history. These walking tours begin at the Custom House Maritime Museum, then visitors follow the tour guides, who are dressed in 18th-century merchant garb, through downtown Newburyport. The historic tours focus on the Merrimac River, explaining how the river influenced life in Newburyport – and in fact, the country – from the very beginning. The tour guides also discuss Newburyport as the birthplace of the US Coast Guard and how it was an important center of ship-building in the 18th century. These historic tours even go into some darker history as during the Revolutionary War when the city was a center for “privateers,” aka legal pirates who harassed British ships.

Those who participate in any of these walking tours, which makes sixteen stops through downtown Newburyport, get to touch and taste the history. Attendees handle hemp sailcloth fabric and rope used in the ship-building industry, and cones of sugar used in distilling the local spirits. Speaking of local spirits, the tour concludes with a celebration of Newburyport’s history as a center of rum distilleries by letting tour-goers try a rum cocktail for themselves. Partnering with a local rum distillery and a local brewery, walkers get to try concoctions like the “rattle skull,” a colonial-era beverage made with rum, applejack and lime juice, then topped with nutmeg, or something called a “rum swizzle” that features two kinds of rum, orange juice, pineapple juice and grenadine. Just the thing after a long walk!

The tour costs $40 per adult, and this includes the walking tour, appetizers and a cocktail. For more information, see the Untapped History web site.

Newburyport Lantern Festival Supporting Ovarian Cancer Awareness

Newburyport Lantern Festival, Newburyport MA

In observance of National Ovarian Cancer Month, Greater Newburyport Ovarian Cancer Awareness (GNOCA) will present its seventh annual Newburyport Lantern Festival, at Bartlet Mall, on September 2, from 6 to 8 p.m.  The rain date is Monday, September 3rd. All are welcome to come and decorate, light and float lanterns on Frog Pond at dusk. This well attended ceremony is in the Asian tradition of remembering family and friends and making wishes for the future. Decorating materials and calligraphers will be available. The event is free, with a suggested donation of $10 per lantern. Lanterns can be purchased at the event and there are lots of markers and stencils available to help decorate lanterns. Lanterns can also be purchased in advance at Greetings by Design.

GNOCA, a volunteer organization, was founded in 2011. Its mission is to honor and improve women’s lives by promoting earlier detection, enhanced recovery and greater survival rates for ovarian cancer. GNOCA (www.ocawareness.org) seeks to increase awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer, to provide support services for women and families affected by ovarian cancer within the Greater Newburyport area, and to help fund ovarian cancer research.

Aside from direct assistance to local patients and their families, proceeds from GNOCA events go to Ovations for the Cure (ovationsforthecure.org), a nonprofit organization, in their promotion of knowledge of the disease, concrete hope and support for those already diagnosed, and significant scientific advancements leading to the cure.

Each year, over 21,000 women in America are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, but with keener awareness of the subtle, earliest symptoms of this insidious disease, a 93 percent five-year survival rate can be achieved.

Over the past six years, the Newburyport Lantern Festival has really grown, beginning with about 100 participants the first year and swelling to about 2,000 participants in subsequent years. Many view the occasion as a perfect time to take evocative photographs as the lit lanterns freely float along the water in the twilight.

The public is encouraged to bring picnics, blankets or lawn chairs to the Newburyport Lantern Festival. Live music, under the able leadership of Donna Ricci, will be featured throughout the evening.

Other events planned by GNOCA include a September 7th show at the Firehouse Center for the Arts with four comedians from the Boston Comedy Project. In past years this evening has sold out, so interested individuals should purchase Boston Comedy Project tickets online, visit or call the box office, at 978-462-7336, for reservations. Tickets are $28 and include receptions before and after the show.

For questions about any of these events, or to learn more about GNOCA, please call Deb Green, at Greetings by Design, 978-225-6700, or email info@ocawareness.org.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

  • Bloating
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Trouble eating or feeling full quickly
  • Urinary urgency or frequency
  • Gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Fatigue and/or fever
  • Unexplained weight gain or loss

Greater Newburyport Breakfast and Brunch Places – Do you Know them All?

Newburyport breakfast and Brunch Places

Breakfast, its an important start to the day, its business, its social and for many a relaxing tradition.  Have you stopped to consider how many excellent Greater Newburyport breakfast and brunch places we have to choose from?  Have you visited them all, at least once?  So where does the breakfast lover start?  Our list is certainly diverse featuring traditional casual diners to upscale brunch places, some of which are located in Newburyport and others in surrounding towns.  We challenge you to try all of these Greater Newburyport breakfast and brunch places and we hope you will discover a few new favorites.

Newburyport breakfast and Brunch Places

Beginning with downtown Newburyport traditional diners and cafes, Angie’s Diner has a history of offering fast friendly service and delicious food since 1969.  We highly recommend the Stuffed French Toast and the Western Omelet.  Although they are known as a downtown Newburyport breakfast destination, they are also open for lunch and dinner.  Owner, Steve Luz is the man behind this Newburyport establishment and is always there working to ensure his customers are happy.

Do you enjoy a Bloody Mary or Mimosa with your breakfast or brunch?  Ceia Kitchen & Bar has a strong reputation for exceptional high quality cocktails and fresh farm to table food.  Come for brunch and enjoy creative twists on traditional favorites, and Ceia offers a great kids menu too! Owner, Nancy Batista-Caswell takes great pride in serving top quality food for her loyal customers.

 

Have you experienced the FM Station Cafe?  This is an amazing breakfast place located just off the route 1 traffic circle next to Minute Man Press.  The Blueberry Coconut Pancakes are a sweet delight and if you prefer savory we recommend the Florentine Benedict with spinach and tomatoes (Feature image at top of page), and the homemade Corned Beef Hash is excellent as well.  The FM Station Cafe offers traditional breakfast favorites with the option for a few tasty Brazilian dishes as well.  Owner, Fabio Santos is normally busy cooking while his wife Eva an her sister Coffee factory Newburyport, Coffee and sandwich shopPoloma welcome and take care of guests.

Everyone knows the Coffee Factory as the Newburyport coffee house destination with free Wi-Fi and delicious sandwiches and salads but did you know they serve tasty breakfast sandwiches too?  We recommend the Veggie Bagel sandwich featured to the right, the Joppa Flat or the Works.  Owner Kevin Yorke works hard to provide an exceptional experience for his customers in Newburyport and in his Derry and Salem NH locations too.

 

Are you looking for a brunch experience that includes great live music?  The Plum Island Grille is the place to go.  Owner and Chef, Francis Broadbery and his staff at The Plum Island Grille have a long history of serving an excellent Sunday Brunch menu accompanied with live Jazz Music from 1- 3 PM.  The entire menu is exceptional but we recommend trying the Quiche or the Smoked Salmon.  Head out to the Island and at least pretend you’re on vacation!

Newburyport breakfast and Brunch Places

The Riverside Cafe is a very well known breakfast and lunch spot.  Owner, Ken Santiano arrives between 4:30 and 5 AM every morning to have breakfast ready for the early birds by 6 AM.  It’s all delicious but we love the omelets, pancakes and breakfast sandwiches, yum!  Oh and the bacon is extra crispy for the bacon connoisseurs!  Make sure to visit Riverside during holidays throughout the year.  Ken and his staff do an excellent job of decorating for all occasions!

 

Just around the corner from Riverside Cafe is The Finest Kind.  If you know this one then you’re a true Newburyport local!  Owner and Chef David Rice has been serving his customers for over 25 years.  The omelets and breakfast sandwiches are great, and so is the story of the personified hard boiled egg painting by local artist Herbie Crooks, that mysteriously disappeared.  Stop in to learn the full story!

 

Don’t forget about the excellent Greater Newburyport breakfast and brunch places in the towns that surround Newburyport!  Salisbury has a number of breakfast spots that we highly recommend, starting with Nancy’s Marshview Cafe.  Owner, Nancy Wallace offers a tasty selection of traditional breakfast foods and keep in mind that she is also really well known for her amazing homemade cakes, pies and handcrafted lattes.  The Coned Beef Hash at Nancy’s is delicious.  It is homemade and you can tell because it is not salty!

Pat’s Diner,  a historic landmark and traditional diner built in 1950, is located in Salisbury near the Salisbury Library.  Owner, Pat Poulakos Archambault is an inspirational entrepreneurial woman at age 86 years young!  She proudly greets all of her customers and works hard to make sure that they feel like family when they visit Pat’s Diner, while her son George cooks up traditional diner breakfast selections.  Pat suggests the Eggs Benedict or the Baked Pork Pie and the kids Chocolate Chip Pancakes are made with extra TLC!

 

Have you been to Rico’s Cafe?  Owner, Maria Melo is from the Azors.  She is there at 5:30 AM to welcome you with a cup of coffee and ready to prepare your favorite wake up meal.  Among her top specialties are her omelets and her wonderful homemade soups!  Rico’s is located next door to the Salisbury Post Office.

If you’re in search of a special occasion Sunday Brunch destination, pay a visit to  Seaglass Restaurant and Lounge.  Seaglass is  right on the beach in Salisbury offering stunning views of the ocean, and an elegant brunch buffet including: made to order omelets, carving station, delicious  pastries and more.  Depending upon the schedule of the tide you could be enjoying brunch over of the ocean!  Owner, Wayne Capolupo ensures food, service and atmosphere are all exceptional at Seaglass, and don’t save Seaglass just for special occasions.  Visit any time!

 

Metzy’s is a place you think of for lunch and dinner but they also offer some delicious breakfast options as well.  Try the Bacon Burrito: bacon, eggs, cheddar-jack cheese, guacamole, caramelized onions, black beans, pico de gallo, and chipotle sour cream  or a Chorizo Taco: chorizo, eggs, cheddar-jack cheese, pico de gallo, & chipotle sour cream.  Metzy’s also offers hot organic Mexican Coffee, cold brew coffee, tea and fresh squeezed orange juice.

Everyone loves Panera Bread for lunch but don’t forget they have great breakfast options as well including muffins, pastries, breakfast sandwiches and coffee.  Or, treat yourself to a freshly baked souffle in a variety of choices.  Oh, and did we forget to mention the very convenient drive thru window, and the fact that all Panera food is 100% clean, free of preservatives, sweeteners, additives, and artificial ingredients.  Although Panera is part of large company, Manager Hanna Elliott has developed a strong local customer base for the Newburyport shop and works hard to always provide top notch service for her customers.

If you enjoy breakfast sandwiches, don’t forget about Subway!  Local Franchise Owner, BB Bhatt is there early morning baking the breads. Served on a freshly baked flat bread roll with real applewood smoked bacon and your choice of vegetables, the Subway breakfast sandwiches are a delicious health option for folks who like to create their breakfast sandwich!
