Eugene can be an exciting place to be, but you need to know where to go. Luckily for you, Eugene Car Transport has operated in the area for more than a decade, so we know a bit about what goes on around here. Here is a non-comprehensive list of some fun events this weekend that will help kick off your summer season.
Thursday through Sunday: International Film Festival by The Archaeology Channel
The Archaeology Channel is part of a local nonprofit that focuses on improving archaeology, and therefore, our understanding of humanity. This week, it is hosting a four-day film festival that will display some of the best archaeological films to come out in recent years. This festival promises to be an excellent look into our shared past. It is hosted at the Shedd Institute. For fans of archaeology and human culture throughout history, this is a can’t-miss event.
Saturday: Eugene Ballet’s Taming of the Shrew
The Silva Concert Hall plays host to the Eugene Ballet’s performance of Shakespeare’s most controversial play this weekend. Taming of the Shrew will realize artistic director Toni Pimble’s vision of a dark, steampunk-inspired world for the Minola sisters. With music by French composer Louise Farrenc, ballet fans will surely enjoy this performance. And, if you miss the Saturday showing, there will be a Sunday matinee the next day.
Sunday: Mount Pisgah Arboretum Wildflower Festival
For the first time in three years, the Mount Pisgah Arboretum will host its wildflower festival in person. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, you can experience the beautiful flowers and their lovely scents by strolling through the arboretum. With 209 acres of trails and paths to explore, nature-lovers will be right at home at the wildflower festival. It will also feature guided tours for those who want that expert touch and live music from local artists.
Of course, this list of events barely scratches the surface of all the things you can get up to this weekend. Eugene has a lot to offer, so get out there and explore this lovely city!
