Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 7.31.08





.This Week's Calendar | Ongoing Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

We’re glad the Oregon State Fair changed its slogan from “It’s Like a Magical Enchanted Land. Except Real” to “Too Big to Miss.” We were worried that the die-hard fairies, elves, hobbits, goblins and other dwellers in the magic land of the Faerieworlds Festival would get their dates and locations mixed up. We can only imagine the moshpit in Salem at the Poison show or the look of concern on Garrison Keillor’s face. To be clear: Faerieworlds takes place in the “magical enchanted” land of the Secret House Winery in Veneta this very weekend. Now in its fifth year and stretching to three days, the fairie fest has been split into three themes: Good Faeries Day (Friday), Bad Faeries Day (Saturday) and Family Day (Sunday). The fest is once again guest hosted by Wendy and Brian Froud (of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth muppet-making fame) and presents the musical talents of Woodland, Kan’nal, Zilla, Qntal and Estampie (with lightshows for the late-night concerts, some even going ’til midnight!). See www.faerieworlds.com and Calendar.



Taking full advantage of August’s spectacular weather (in comparison to the nine months of the year when it’s dreadful), this month’s First Friday ArtWalk will be an all-outdoors excursion to five pieces of public art downtown generally overlooked by the umbrella-shielded masses. Local artist Betsy Wolfston leads this walk and will start at the Wind-Rain Song bronze sculpture by Weltzin Blix at 7th and Willamette. After opening remarks by Mayor Kitty Piercy, Wolfston leads the art-walkers a half-block to the Japanese-American Memorial sculpture by Kenge Kobayashi at 6th and Willamette, honoring those Americans who were forcibly removed to camps during WWII because of their nationality. The walk moves to Kesey Plaza, where The Storyteller sculpture (pictured) by Peter Helzer shows author Ken Kesey reading to his grandchildren, and Wolfston’s ceramic Four Seasons pillars stand at the intersection of Broadway and Willamette. Final stop is Eugene Skinner by James Carpenter, outside the Downtown Library, which honors the land speculator who saw the double buttes of Skinner and Spencer and a land that would someday be named “Eugene.” Also, one extra big, delicious reason to hit the art walk this week: It coincides with the Bite of Downtown! Fourteen downtown restaurants serve up small plates of their specialties for $2 to $5 while also offering cooking demonstrations, live music and belly dancers. It’s all a benefit for FOOD for Lane County, so fast for your Friday feast and hit up downtown for all your visual and caloric needs. See Friday Calendar.


The lovely mix of bikes and blackberries come to fruition this weekend at the GEARs-sponsored Blackberry Jamboree and bRamble. Saturday’s jamboree is a community fun ride meant for riders of all abilities and age levels to cruise a 20-mile loop through the neighborhoods of Eugene with stops at community centers and parks along the route. Everyone then chows down on blackberry cobbler and ice cream after the ride. Not too shabby! Then on Sunday, the bRamble expands to a full century (100 miles), a metric century (100 km) or a 43-mile challenge ride through the Coast Range southwest of Eugene. Rest stops throughout the ride keep you going with pasta, bagels, water and sag wagon support. Finish the ride right with a blackberry treat (and maybe a nap). All rides start and end at the EWEB Riverfront Plaza. See Calendar.
