June Happenings at Kilburn Mills

June Happenings at Kilburn Mills

We’ve got a number of special events coming up in the next few weeks at Kilburn Mills at Clark Cove – and thought it best to list them all here for you in one place. The actual place is, of course, 127 W. Rodney French Boulevard, in New Bedford’s beautiful south end peninsula area by the cove.

Throughout Kilburn Mills this June, please join us and members of the Kilburn family for the following:

1 – The grand re-opening of KJ Designs – On Saturday, June 22, the silk screening, embroidery and graphics firm KJ Designs move to a larger space in the building – and celebrate their first anniversary at the same time. You’re invited to this free event from 1:00-5:00 p.m. They will have a special guest, Joselito the puppet abuelas favorite nieto, who will be taking pics and signing autographs. Also, listen for DJ Infinite in the building playing music (salsa, freestyle, hip hop). KJ Designs is located on the first floor of Kilburn; enter through main entrance.

2 – On Sunday, June 23, New Bedford Antiques at the Cove will hold a Yard Sale in the parking lot! Come rummage through yesterday’s treasures for special deals from participating dealers from 7:00-11:00 a.m.

3 – The Judith Klein Art Gallery & Studio’s Summer Art Show – An annual event, the Judith Klein Gallery’s Summer Art Show featuring multiple local artists opens on Sunday, June 23 with a free reception from 4:00-7:00 p.m. You can enter the the beautiful gallery overlooking Clarks Cove from the rear of the building.

3 – The Portugues Kids are coming to Kilburn! The world-famous – or is that infamous? – Portuguese Kids bring their special brand of ethnic-flavored comedy to Kilburn for a special Kilburn Comedy Cove show on Friday, June 28 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are only $20 – and you can get them here!

About the Portuguese Kids: Meet Derrick DeMelo, Brian Martins and Al Sardinha – otherwise known as The Portuguese Kids. Hailing from South Eastern Massachusetts, The Portuguese Kids are taking ethnic comedy to new heights with their live shows highlighting the funnier side of growing up Portuguese. From New England to California and Winnipeg to Toronto; their mission is to deliver a great source of comedic entertainment to the Portuguese-American and Portuguese-Canadian communities. An opportunity to showcase “Growing Up Portuguese” through Sketch, Music, and Improv. Being Portuguese is unique, wonderful, and a lot of the time…funny! The Portuguese Kids are bridging the gap between generations and bringing the culture back where it belongs. One piece of chourico at a time.
