Looking for something fun to do this weekend? KDUK’s Valerie Steele has a few ways you can enjoy your time on the town.
The chilly fall weather can get you in the mood for some cider and craft beers. The McKenzie Cider and Craft Beer Festival will bring together some of the finest of the two from all over the Northwest, along with some great music. It happens Friday from 5-11 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 11 p.m. at the Willamalane Event Center in Springfield. Admission is $15. Proceeds go to help feed Springfield children and families.
And if you’d like to try brewing your own batch yourself, head to the Oakshire Tasting Room in Eugene. The folks over there are celebrating National Learn to Homebrew Day. Meet other local homebrewers this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Acrobats and martial artists will be performing this weekend at Lane Community College. Nanda presents “The Jacket”. This kung faux ninja circus combines comedy, acrobatics, martial arts, original music and dance. They’ll perform Friday through Sunday at the LCC Performance Hall in Eugene. Tickets start at $15. They’re available online.
Take in a little theater this weekend. Actors at the University of Oregon will perform their show LOVE.WILL.SHAKE. It’s a new play from Shakespeare’s sonnets on love and loss and everything in between. Shows are at the Robinson Theater on the UO campus, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $12. UO students get in for free.
And it’s that time of year again. KDUK is bringing back Stuff the McDonald. This year, Rootdown will be joined by Boys Like Girls and special guest Chris Wallace. The concert is coming on Thursday, Nov. 15. Tickets are on sale at TicketsWest. Proceeds go to Food for Lane County.
