Arabic-Persian calligrapher coming to Fremont

The Fremont Art Association (FAA) presents an evening with calligrapher Arash Shirinbab, who will be speaking about and demonstrating Arabic-Persian calligraphy. The evening presentation on August 3 begins the Calligraphies in Conversation exhibit at the Fremont gallery, which will continue until September 23.

Audiences usually perceive calligraphy when it is finished, so the performance of calligraphy is a unique opportunity for them to see the very act of calligraphy while it is done live. The Islamic calligraphy demonstration is about introducing audiences to the way that this calligraphy is done, with traditional tools in small scale as well as using traditional-inspired tools in large-scale format. After the demonstration there will be questions and answers, and then the audience will have a chance to try traditional tools and experience the calligraphy up close. The program is for all ages, from children to adults with any background.

Neighbors gather for National Night Out

Tri-City folks looking for a way to strengthen their neighborhood communities can organize a gathering or visit an event on Tuesday, August 2 in honor of the 33rd annual National Night Out. This yearly nationwide event is designed to raise crime prevention awareness and develop partnerships between a city and the community.

Hosting a National Night Out party is a simple way for people to meet neighbors, have fun, and explore how they might work together to improve the safety and quality of their neighborhood. Cities around the area want residents to know about how they can come together to launch a block party, a cook out, an ice cream social or other way to gather together after dark.

In addition to hosting evening parties, citizens are asked to turn on porch and other outdoor lights in support of this event, to send a strong message against crime and illegal drug activity. These practical and symbolic activities highlight the benefits of strong police and community partnerships.

Newark Pavilion to host Bay Area Night Market

The Bay Area Night Market will have its inaugural debut at the Newark Pavilion on Friday, July 29. The event was created by Ria Lauren Abellera, the owner of Sweet Imaginations, a former vendor of many festivals and events all over the Bay Area. The Bay Area Night Market was created to bring a new spin on summer festivals and events in the Tri-City and to bring the community together.

The Bay Area Night Market takes inspiration from the popular Asian night markets found in many Asian countries. The event will take that inspiration and blend it with a Bay Area vibe for a night that is uniquely Bay Area.

Though night markets are traditionally held outside on the streets, the Bay Area Night Market will have a marketplace both outdoors and indoors at the Newark Pavilion. Just outside of the Pavilion, attendees can dine from a global selection of over 12 food vendors ranging from traditional milk tea and Taiwanese snacks to American waffle sandwiches and Halal gyros. The outside marketplace will also have an area for carnival games to provide a fun, competitive entertainment for children and adults.
