Calendar Features

Of all the holidays Eugene goes all-out in celebrating, it’s not surprising that Earth Day is one of them. From park cleanups to rock festivals — the geode kind, that is — there’s a little bit of something for everyone going on April 22. Here are a few Earth-centric events happening this Sunday, check out the full calendar for the rest. For some adult fun on Earth Day, check out the Brewshed Alliance’s Brewfest & Celebration from 2-9 pm at Sprout! (418 A Street, Springfield). The event offers beer tastings from breweries across Oregon, food and a raffle. All proceeds benefit Oregon Wild, an environmental nonprofit “working to protect Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife and waters,” according to the event’s website. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. If you’re feeling like giving back to Mother Nature on Earth Day, stop by Mount Pisgah Arboretum Visitor Center (34901 Frank Parrish Road.) from 10 am-1 pm for the free Prune and Groom Work Party. Peek at the volunteer section in EW’s full What’s Happening calendar for even more ways to get your hands dirty. If you like looking at shiny, pretty things, you’ll want to check out the fifth annual Oregon Geo Fest at Broadway Center (2100 W. Broadway). The fest offers vendor booths with gems, minerals, crystals and fossils around the world, as well as giveaways, prize drawings, music and food. It’s free and happening from 11 am-5 pm. For those wanting to spend their Earth Day learning new things, stop by The Barn Light East at 2 pm for Science Pub, a free event where local scientists talk about native plant and animal species and community conservation efforts. And for more science, stop by the University of Oregon campus at noon for the March For Science, starting at the EMU, to join scientists, activists and community members to march for “science, research, investigative integrity and the environment.” — Meerah Powell

One person’s trash is another one’s treasure, as the saying goes. The annual Metamorphose up-cycled fashion show is “one of Lane County’s most unique and fascinating fashion and recycling events,” according to St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County, and the Saturday evening events highlights just how beautiful cast-off materials can be. Metamorphose founder Mitra DeMirza Chester is SVdP’s own in-house art and fashion designer and she’s been taking yesterday’s scraps and turning them into hip apparel for the nonprofit since 2013. SVdP says that the Earth Day competition “will feature 14 designers who have transformed discarded materials ranging from fabric scraps to neck ties to coffee-bean bags into outfits that their models will wear.” Come take a look at the original couture on the runway, along with BRING Recycling’s Product Design Challenge, which asks participants to “transform salvaged materials into new and relevant products such as furniture, home décor, accessories, tools and more.” And sticking with the theme of transforming trash into treasure, the winners of MECCA’s April 21 Object Afterlife Art Challenge will be featured as well. “We inspire our community to reimagine unwanted materials while breaking down the financial barriers to the arts and creativity,” MECCA Director Heather Campbell says in a press release for the event.

MECCA’s Object Afterlife artist reception and awards ceremony is 6 pm to 8 pm, Friday, April 21, at MECCA: Materials Exchange Center for Community Arts, 449 Willamette Street. FREE. Metamorphose is 6 pm to 9 pm, Saturday, April 22, at the Lane County Fairgrounds’s Wheeler Pavilion. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for youth; tickets are available at the door. — Camilla Mortensen

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar articles.
