Cirque Du Soliel: Varekai

"Varekai" means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies, so expect to be transported to another world in an attempt to find fantasy in Cirque Du Soliel's new production. Paying tribute to nomadic life and the tradition of the circus, the performance will tell the tale of a young Icarus who fell from the sky when he flew too close to the sun. Varekai is where he landed. 1:30 pm, 4 pm, 5 pm, 7:30 pm. Veterans Memorial Coliseum. $40-$105.

thursday 7 – sunday 10

Bridgetown Comedy Fest

The biggest comedy festival west of the Mississippi, the truly remarkable Bridgetown Comedy Fest takes over about a dozen stages in Portland for round-the-clock yuk-fests. Enough said.


saturday 9 – sunday 10

Jambo Jumbos

The population of elephants in the state of Oregon has increased by two! Wildlife Safari rolled out an extra-large red carpet in February to welcome two new female elephants, Liz and Valerie, to their herd, which is now five strong. Now that they have settled in, the two "pachyderm princesses" are ready to meet all of the Oregonian bipeds. Cookies and punch will be provided, but the two newcomers will probably stick to the standard 400 pounds of vegetation and 50 gallons of water that they each eat every day, thank you very much. 1-3 pm. Wildlife Safari. $6-$12.


saturday 9 – saturday 16

Roseburg Beer Week

Roseburg becomes Brewburg for one week only. Sure, they will have the standard local brews paired with the local fare, but how about a Lumberjack Competition for entertainment? Now that'll put hair on your knuckles. There will also be a Homebrew Rendezvous for all the garage crafters out there. And for those who think they know their beer like the back of their hand, test your skill at the Name that Beer Contest. Roseburg may only be home to six breweries, but they sure do know how to party. See the full schedule at
