Kindie Concerts

See family favorites Jazzy Ash & Red Yarn at The Reser this weekend; tickets are only $10-$15, and the venue is stunning. Or hear Jessa Campbell & the Saplings at Cathedral Park Performing Arts Collective’s Porch Concert Series; this concert is free, plus the St. Johns Farmers Market and public library are only steps away. For even more kindie concerts, take a look at our Kids Calendar.

Live Dance Performances

See Oregon Ballet Theatre’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, for a magical night of fairies and mischief. Or if your teens have ever said dance is boring (gasp!), take them to to see the uber-creative, always cool BodyVox, performing Pearl Dive Live this weekend.

Get Festive

It’s fall, y’all! Head to a local farm festival, such as Triskelee Farm Fall Fest, Hood River Valley Harvest Fest, or one of the many pumpkin patches on our comprehensive list. It’s also a great weekend to tour the Hood River Fruit Loop.
