There’s everything from a high school football game and a hike to a music performance and train display on the weekend calendar, right here in Hamilton and Wenham.
Each Friday morning, Hamilton-Wenham Patch’s “Get Out” weekend planner brings you a quick look at local events and activities.
The weekend calendar also includes many other things to do and we encourage you to look past this weekend guide into our full calendar of events, where we have other events listed.
Remember, if you have great ideas of your own that you want to share, please feel free to add them in the comments section at the bottom.

The hour-long walk will go from the Donovan Fields parking lot to the top of Sagamore Hill (the highest point in Hamilton) and take about an hour. At the top, Butch Crosbie from the Hamilton Historical Society will give a talk on the history of Sagamore Hill.
