Calendar Features

There’s just something about an airport runway. The vast expanse of tarmac, the giant planes taking off and landing, the people scurrying around amid the huge machines, helping them launch into the air and depart for parts unknown. For those of us who have sat and stared out a plane window, wishing we could run around in the fields and lanes of the airport, there’s the Fifth annual Air Fair and 5K on the Runway this Saturday at Eugene’s Mahlon Sweet Airport. If running around on a runway, with heat waves shimmering on an August day, sounds insane, don’t worry. Organizers from the Active 20-30 Club of Eugene and the airport say that the chip-timed course has “plenty of water features along the course to keep people cool, including a fire truck water arch at the race start line and a slippery slide finish at the finish line.” The 5K race starts at 2 pm, preceded by a free kids’ fun run at 1:45 pm. The events start at 11 am and include a dunk tank, airplanes to check out, free “Young Eagle’s Exploratory Flights” and a local food truck and beer garden. The day concludes after a 3 pm awards ceremony and airline ticket giveaway.

Fifth Annual Air Fair and 5K on the Runway, 11 am Saturday, Aug. 27 at Eugene’s Mahlon Sweet Field Airport. 5K is $25, race shirts $10. Parking in the EUG overflow parking lot on Northrup Drive and a free shuttle to the east aviation ramp. For more info go to eugene2030.org. Other events are FREE.

This weekend is Fifth Street Public Market’s 40th Anniversary Celebration weekend. From Aug. 26 to 28th there will by live music, a car show and more. Events kick off Friday with woodwind musicians from the Eugene Symphony. Saturday check out live music all day and a roaming balloon artist and face painter. And Sunday from 12 am to 3 pm there will be the Blues, Brews & Classic Car Show fundraiser for FOOD for Lane County ($3 sug. don. or three cans of food) with guest breweries Plank Town and Claim 52. Weekend music includes Hank Shreve Band, Riffle, Mike & the Brewketts, The Pettichord Family and Paul Biondi and his All Star Blues Band. Head over to Fifth Street Public Market located, of course, on 5th Avenue near High Street. 

Fifth Street Public Market’s 40th Anniversary Celebration weekend, 5-7 pm Friday, Aug. 26; 11 am-8 pm Saturday, Aug. 27 and noon-3 pm Sunday, Aug. 28th. More information at 5stmarket.com. Friday and Saturday FREE, Sunday $3 sug. don.

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!
