The City of Quincy has been recognized as the first official U.S. City to partner and to participate in the international arts and cultural movement Fair Saturday, on Saturday November 30, 2019. Originating in Bilbao, Spain in 2014. Fair Saturday aims to create a positive social impact each year on the last Saturday of November, the day following Black Friday.
Fair Saturday is an innovative cultural festival celebrating arts and culture in support of social issues that takes place in a growing number of cities across the world. In 2018 more than 600 events occurred in over 100 cities worldwide. Jordi Albareda, founder of Fair Saturday, stated "It is a day to change the world through arts and culture.
Cultural organizations across various disciplines participate by scheduling a time during the day/evening to express their art in support of their selected social cause. JM Productions and The Church of Presidents has chosen Y2Y a homeless shelter in Harvard Square for young people ages 18-24 as our charity of choice.
Fair Saturday will be celebrated by cities and towns around the world on November 30, 2019. Cities across the globe include Bilbao, Bristol, Málaga, Milano, Lisbon, Portugal, Helsinki, Leeuwarden, cities throughout Scotland, Germany, South Africa and more, forming an incredible tapestry of cities connected in the same positive celebration on the same day every year.
