The city of Santa Clarita’s Thursdays@Newhall series, presented by Valencia Auto Center, charges into April with free events on Main Street in Old Town Newhall, including the popular “Revved Up” car show and the New Heights Artist Development Series.

Thursdays@Newhall is an ongoing opportunity for residents of Santa Clarita to attend free shows, concerts and special events on Thursdays in Old Town Newhall.

The month begins on April 5 when line dancing comes to JAM Sessions from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Get ready for the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival by learning to line dance with Candy Sherwin, who will show you dance step sequences that will get everyone moving together as one. Dust off your boots and join in the lines.

Singles and couples of all ages will then enjoy music from The Mary White Band, whose infectious energy makes you want to get up and dance! JAM Sessions is hosted in conjunction with the Ford Theatre Foundation, bringing dance and original live performances to the Old Town Newhall Library, located at 24500 Main Street.

Also on April 5 at The MAIN, located at 24266 Main Street, 10 performers will take the stage for 10 minutes each and share their comedy, storytelling, short films and music at the monthly “10 by 10” show from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Performances this month include storytelling from Ruby Cooper, Isadora O’Boto and Philip Scorza; music featuring Fisher Fifteen, Ted Case and The New Mexican; comedy from Shawn G and Richard Myers; mentalist Gabe Ableson; and a screening of film shorts “Route 66” and “Glenda.”

“Revved Up” is next on the list for the all-new Variety Night, and will take place on April 12 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Support the Santa Clarita car scene at this local car meet up open to all types of vehicles. Enjoy the sights of clean lines and the sounds of engines roaring as fast cars, classic cars and everything in between line Main Street.

Also on April 12, local musicians will take the stage for Note by Note inside The MAIN from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Note by Note is a free musical showcase delighting audiences with a variety of genres. Bands, duos and soloists will perform for the audience’s listening pleasure. Enjoy a wide range of styles including rock, folk, Celtic, Americana, blues, jazz, country, experimental, western and more.

Featured performers in April include Doug & Rich, Mark Christian, Thomas M. Alfera and Pat Nason. Performers interested in Note by Note can learn more at ThursdaysAtNewhall.com/NotebyNote.

SENSES, the wildly popular monthly block party on Main Street, will go western with the annual Cowboy Kickoff on April 19 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Rediscover the spirit of the Old West and stimulate your senses on Main Street with music from The Mary White Band, mechanical bull rides, line dancing, street performers, gourmet food trucks and drinks from El Trocadero.

On April 19, an art reception will be held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. inside The MAIN. This month’s featured exhibit is “Shoreline Symmetry” by artist Karen Hochman.

The exhibit features mandala-like work that begins with photographs that she then spins and adorns into digital prints mounted on aluminum to create her own kaleidoscopic imagery. Guests attending this free reception will enjoy light appetizers, entertainment and have a chance to meet Hochman.

Thursdays@Newhall’s slate this month finishes on April 26 with an entry in the New Heights Artist Development Series inside The MAIN. The goal of many artists is to find ways to make a successful living, while at the same time pursuing their passion.

“How I Did It: Artists Share Their Journey” will feature Laura Wambsgans, JoAnn Peralta and Toni Haigh. Throughout this free panel discussion, the artists will share their stories and strategies that they have used to achieve their level of success.
