Northforker has a monthly roundup of 10 can’t-miss events. I took over writing it in the dead of winter when 80-degree days — let alone temps that crept above freezing — seemed as if they’d never return.

Back in March, must-do events were hard to come by. (Shout out to the local businesses that give us something to look forward to even when it’s -2 degrees outside.)

Fellow North Forkers may remember the self-guided exploration of local artwork known as the Greenport Gallery Walks.

For several years in the early aughts, gallery owners opened their doors the third Saturday of every month from June through November to allow people to peruse the artwork.

That event trailed off in recent years when the recession caused many Greenport galleries to close, according to Sirens’ Song Gallery owner and Greenport Business Improvement District promotion liaison Caroline Waloski.
