Summer can be a very hard thing to say goodbye to when you live in Lake Oswego where afternoons are spent at the swim park and evenings are spent listening to live music at Westlake Park. But luckily we aren’t left high and dry with nothing to do and little to look forward to. Look at this lineup of coming attractions:
●TWILIGHT ON THE TRAIL. The Friends of Luscher Farm invite you to a garden party to benefit expansion of the farm’s trails, benches and trees on Saturday, September 30, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Start the evening by strolling the back fields and historic barn while sipping and grazing from a seasonally inspired Farm to Table menu. Then enjoy dinner, dessert, music and dancing in the barn. Many of the ingredients for the meal will be provided by Lusher Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture partner, 47th Farm, and created by Chef Sarah Carlson of the Red Hare. Music will be provided by the Dryland Farmers Band. Limited tickets are on sale online through September 20 for $85 per person.
●CAMPFIRE EVENINGS AT LUSCHER FARM. Enjoy a (BYO) picnic dinner topped off by s’mores around the campfire while you explore Luscher Farm and participate in discovery-based activities. The next campfire is set for October 6. Register online.
●WINE WALK. Wine, music and art—that’s the Lake Oswego Downtown Business Alliance’s winning formula for its annual Wine Walk set for Saturday, October 21 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Besides discovering new wines, participants also get a chance to discover new businesses in town as they follow their maps to the venues offering the wines they want to taste. Get your tickets now ($40) as this event sells out every year.
●CIVIL WAR GAME. This is the other civil war game—the local one. The Lake Oswego Lakers and Lakeridge Pacers Varsity football teams face off for their annual bragging rights contest on Friday, October 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lakeridge field. Experience what this crosstown rivalry feels like in action and wear your favorite shade of blue.
●CROSSTOBERFEST. Put a little oom-pah in your fall festivities by either taking part in or standing on the sidelines and watching Luscher Farm’s second Crosstoberfest on Saturday, October 28, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Cyclocross racing is one of the most beginner-friendly of bicycle race formats with courses no longer than two miles, although they do present interesting (and entertaining) challenges. In addition to a race, it’s also a party with a vendor village offering food, drinks, music, and yes…beer (there’s your oom-pah). Registration information is available online.
