The Seahawks might be out, but you don’t have to be! It’s time to go have some fun. There is plenty to do around Whatcom County this weekend. Here are some Bellingham weekend event highlights to get you started. Don’t forget to check our full Events Calendar for all the fun happenings going on this weekend.

  • Drop your little ones at Kid’s Night Out and take some time for yourself. Students in grades 1-5 will explore hands-on science activities in Western’s Science Resource Center and go swimming. You’ll get some time to yourself and the kids will have a blast. It’s a win-win.
  • Head over to the Firehouse Performing Arts Center for Repertory Dance’s “No Such Place.” These dance works explore the tenuous textures of their own distinct worlds.
  • Journey to an unknown universe of laughter with Upfront Theatre’s “Space Trek.” You provide the suggestions that inspire the completely improvised missions and hilarious space adventures.
  • Then laugh your troubles away with Upfront Theatre’s Doubles – Improve Comedy. They’re removing the proverbial “safety net” and having members of the ensemble take the stage in two-person teams. The duos will take on the weight of multiple performers in these fully improvised shows. With only each other to rely on, they will make you laugh and cry (from laughing too much) in this amazingly challenging format.
  • Ditch the winter blues and head out for a good run. The social camaraderie of this 5K Trail Winter Run is sure to brighten any mood.
  • If you or a loved one has a wedding in your future, check out the Bridal Inspirations Wedding Expo. This show offers more than 50 wedding related businesses along with Western Washington’s largest bridal fashion show.
  • Delve into the world of Personal Cybersecurity. This series of talks will leave you with an understanding of what the threats are, how they may affect you, and reasonable measures for protecting yourself.
  • Hear the thrilling tale of Claudia Olejniczak’s experience Studying Gorillas in the Republic of Congo. She studied the ecology & behavior of western lowland gorillas and other wildlife that regularly visit a large forest clearing in the northern part of the country.
