Goings on around town this weekend June 3, 2008

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, head out to Meggar’s Farm on Saturday, June 7th for the 2008 Earth Expo and Exodus Music Festival. This year’s event features musical acts Public Property, The Nikki Lunden Trio, Skye Cielita Carrasco, The Puritanicals, and The Gglitch, among others.

The goals of this year’s Earth Expo are:

  • To continue to promote local businesses and organizations which contribute to our goal of greener lifestyle.
  • To educate and excite the community about living a “greener” lifestyle and lessoning the carbon footprint.
  • To build a strong future by making environmentalism a fun and valued part of people’s lives.

Check out the Earth Expo and Exodus Music Festival web sites for details and directions.

The Iowa Arts Festival is also happening this weekend in downtown Iowa City (June 6-8). You can link to the full event schedule here.

And, of course, don’t forget about the Iowa City Farmers Market on Saturday mornings (and Wednesday evenings) throughout the summer in the Chauncey Swan parking ramp.

So pray for sunshine and have some fun this weekend!
