This weekend learn more about living large in a tiny house. The Big Tiny House Festival is taking over 10 Poplar St. in Somerville this Saturday and Sunday. Take a look inside a variety of tiny houses and attend workshops to learn how to build your own. Check out the full schedule of events.
If you need weekend plans, Somerville’s got you covered:
You can recycle your Styrofoam on Saturday and then check out Riverfest at Assembly Row and along the Mystic River. On Sunday you can stop by somdog’s annual Dog Festival with your pooch (or to enjoy other people’s dogs) and get a guided tour of the rarely-open Milk Row Cemetery.
National Voter Registration Day is September 23, but you don’t have to wait to register. Somerville’s Elections Department will take your voter registration or address change any business day. If you can’t make it into City Hall, that’s ok too. You can register to vote at any Massachusetts city or town hall or you can download a voter registration form and mail it back in. Happy voting!

We want to help our new residents to get to know Somerville and become part of the community. There’s a lot of information to figure out when you move, so we’ve put together a welcome page for new residents with all the basics.
We know moving can be stressful. Rather than add to your stress by sending you hither and yon for the information you’ll need right away, we’ve put it all on this handy website. Check it out, keep calm, and enjoy your new home!
