The Essex Events Calendar is the quickest way to discover what’s happening in and around Essex, New York. Remember to add your public events to the calendar to help spread the word, and let us know if we’re missing any upcoming events you know of!
The Doodler’s Guide to Essex, NY is a series of handbooks (print and digital) we’re working on that use Essex doodles to illustrate local themes like architecture, history, adventures, etc. The first, The Doodler’s Guide to Essex, NY Architecture is currently being edited and revised, so we’re shifting our focus to local history, heritage and anything else that inspires you to doodle about your community.
Daily Essex Doodles
We’re trying to post original Essex doodles every day as a way to inspire you to explore Essex in new, creative and possibly even whimsical ways. It’s a fun challenge and we’re hoping you’ll help us.
[This is] a chance for you to dive into the creative process, to share your perspective on what makes Essex unique. (How do you doodle, Essex?)
We hope you’ll submit Essex doodles for us to showcase on the blog!
