  • Oregon Mozart Players
    Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the American String Quartet's dulcet combination of viola, cello, and dual violin has been hailed by the New York Times as the "picture of ensemble unity." On May 15, the bow-drawing foursome sets the air particles of Soreng Theater swaying to chamber pieces from three legendary composers. The concert commences with Haydn's precisely wrought Quartet in G Major before the stormy sounds of Beethoven's Quartet in E-flat fill the theater with smiling cartoon rainclouds. The afternoon swirls to a finale with Ravel's sensual Quartet in F Major.

  • The Rad Run
    Ugly Christmas sweaters have become a modern holiday tradition, and in that spirit they are the symbol of Oregon's Ugliest Sweater Run. Runners dressed in their gaudiest knits will run (or walk) a 5K course trimmed with garland and lights, stopping if they choose for photo ops at each of a dozen stations themed after the 12 Days of Christmas. Beginning in Alton Baker Park and finishing at 5th St. Public Market, the race will culminate in an after party as festive as the run itself. As a DJ plays holiday tunes, runners can sign up for fruitcake-eating and eggnog-chugging contests. Those without iron stomachs can still get into the competitive spirit by contributing to an attempt to claim the Guinness World Record for Largest Gathering of People Wearing Ugly Christmas Sweaters. In lieu of paying for parking, you can bring an unwrapped toy or five non-perishable food items. However, cash payments will all be donated to three charities: Toys for Tots, Food for Lane County Food Drive, and the Foster and Adoptive Parent Association of Lane County. Like Santa's Christmas-Eve duties or Mrs. Claus's epic knitting circles, Oregon's Ugliest Sweater Run is an all-weather event.

  • Hennepin Studios
    Listed in the National Registry of Historic Places, the McDonald Theatre has enjoyed a long, strange history since its establishment in 1925. Originally a community playhouse equipped with both a stage and a screen, the theater found new life in the 1950s when One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest author and psychedelic pioneer Ken Kesey began presenting free cartoons there every Saturday morning. The McDonald spent the next six or so decades as a movie house exclusively, but in 2001, the Kesey family returned, producing concerts and community events under the theater’s enormous proscenium arch. Kesey Enterprises finally purchased the time-weighted stage in 2009, and today the building hosts events ranging from high-school proms to reggae concerts to plumbing-fixture lifting contests.

  • David Minor Theater
    David Minor Theater?s two large projection screens broadcast new releases, classics, and cult films, but there's just as much appeal happening off-screen. One example: the front row of Theater One, where a long spread of plush couches stands in for typical movie seats. Then, of course, there?s The Livingroom Theater, an aptly named 16-person screening room outfitted with recliners, couches, and state-of-the-art sound. Other creature comforts abound. The theater serves apps and entrees from local restaurants such as Caf? Lucky Noodle, The Jackalope Lounge, and Granary Pizza, not to mention local and seasonal beers from Ninkasi and Hop Valley, all of which guests can enjoy inside the theater during the show. Moveable tables at the end of the aisles also make eating or folding laundry during films a breeze. Moviegoers can even text their food or drink order to a special number and have it brought to them so they don't miss any of the film.

  • Bijou Art Cinema
    Bijou Art Cinemas has been bringing indie films, foreign flicks, and time-honored classics to Eugene for nearly four decades, and there's no sign that the charming art-house theater will be stopping any time soon. Housing two screens inside a historic church built in the 1920s, the theater (along with its sister cinema, Bijou Metro) specializes in hard-to-find gems that sometimes get overlooked by massive multiplexes. Occasionally, the theater even hosts special guest appearances by the likes of cartoonist Bill Plympton and ghost Charlie Chaplin.

  • Lane Events Center
    The Lane County Fair, first run in 1859, fills the August air with live music, enticing aromas, and the twinkling lights of carnival rides. Gain inspiration for future shower concertos with performances by Tommy Tutone, Nashville's Eric Church, and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, formed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section of Creedence Clearwater Revival, all of whom headline the lengthy list of mainstage performers. Biwheeled vehicles reach new heights in the Boost Mobile Freestyle Motocross Tour, and the eight All-Alaskan Racing Pigs trot merrily around their sawdust-covered track as bystanders watch. The fair's many carnival rides, including the new ground-dwarfing Vertigo, a brightly-colored adrenaline enhancer that cradles heights seekers in swings and whisks them up 100 feet high for a towering view of the lights below, attract revelers and seatbelt fanatics alike ($0.50/ticket, rides take multiple tickets). Local farmers and craftspeople await the bestowment of ribbons as they display their skill and handiwork in numerous exhibitions.
