Paula Sughrue's Summer Fun in Winchester

Winchester Center

Winchester offers many great summer activities. Enjoy!

Our agents at Shanahan Real Estate Group are really active in Winchester and our neighboring communities. Below is a contribution from Paula Sughrue, one of our agents and a Winchester native, on some fun summer activities in town. Enjoy! With summer in full swing and the kids home from school there are many community activities offered in Winchester, Massachusetts that are worth checking out. Here are just a few that I would highly recommend:


The Winchester Farmer's Market is an enjoyable community activity that takes place every Saturday from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM, May thru October, on the Town Common. The Farmer's Market provides Winchester residents and neighboring communities an opportunity to buy locally grown food from farmers, handmade food providers, artisans, local businesses and non-profits. The market also aims to educate the community about the nutritional and environmental implications of the food we eat. This topic is near and dear to my heart since I am constantly trying to provide my four children with healthy food options. It's not an easy task since TV commercials and colorful labels on cereals and other unhealthy food products constantly attract their attention. The Farmer's Market is a small step my family can take into buying and learning the benefits of nutritious, locally grown food. There is also entertainment so be sure to bring a blanket to relax and enjoy. For more information on the Winchester Farmer's Market visit


Concerts on the Common in Winchester is a free activity offered throughout the summer and are held on Wednesday nights from 7:00 - 9:00 PM on the Town Common. There is a schedule posted on Winchester Patch. I recommend you print this and hang it on your fridge; your kids will remind you when its Wednesday because they will not want to miss out! The concerts are a chance for families to picnic on the green grass and enjoy a variety of musical acts. There is usually lots of dancing for the young ones that the musicians encourage. My family has thoroughly enjoyed the concerts over the years. These are just a couple of the many community activities that Winchester, Massachusetts has to offer. You will get more enjoyment from the town if you immerse yourself into the community events. You will learn more about this historic town, strengthen relationships with friends and lay the groundwork for your children to feel connected to the town that will play a large part in their early years. My husband and I feel so blessed to have grown up in Winchester and can only hope that our children will share some of the same great memories we experienced as kids.
