Calendar Features

Just when you thought you were wearing your grownup pants, mobile game company Niantic Inc. dropped Pokémon Go in our collective lap. Pokémon Go, an addictive cell phone app, has forced people outdoors to go on a virtual animal hybrid chase, and this week you can bring your friends and your phones and be part of a pubcrawl to trap your favorite animated creatures. Don’t forget to name a designated driver, who should also double as a sober walker to make sure you can safely navigate downtown on foot while launching Poké balls. 

Pokémon Go Pubcrawl 21+ event runs 8-11pm Saturday, July 23, at Sidelines, 77 W. Broadway; FREE.

When the musicians of Samba Ja fill Kesey Square with Afro-Brazilian percussion, they are welcoming dancers, acrobats, clowns, jugglers, to join them at the Third Thursday Thircus. The band’s practices are open to the public, so if you want to learn their songs, you can join Samba Ja’s performances. The 15-piece plus ensemble brings the beats of Carnival and old-school hip hop around Eugene and at events like the Oregon Country Fair and the Olympic Trials. Bring your dancing shoes or a hula hoop. 

Third Thursday Thircus runs 7:30-10pm Thursday, July 21, at Kesey Square, 10 E. Broadway; FREE.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

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.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!
