March 1-2, 7:30 PM | Newark Theater
This provocative and wickedly witty theatrical adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ satirical novel, The Screwtape Letters, has been a sold-out hit in New York, Chicago, Boston, Dallas and Washington, D.C. The play follows His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape, Satan’s top psychiatrist, and his slavish creature-demon Toadpipe, as they train an apprentice demon, Wormwood, on how to ruin the life and damn the soul of an unsuspecting human on earth. 

March 12TH, 10:00 AM | Culmination Brewing
Join Oregon Breweries author Brian Yaeger for a morning repast of thirteen gluttonous doughnut morsels, a baker’s dozen of the perkiest coffee beer samples, and, of course, coffee. In a city that boasts nearly 60 breweries and an equal number of coffee roasters, plus an outsized love of artisan doughnuts, this brunch time beerfest just makes sense.

March 19th, 10:00 AM-2:00 PM | The Redd
The second annual CSA Share Fair links local farms with customers who buy direct by signing up for weekly seasonal fresh farm deliveries. The event offers ‘find your farmer’ matchmaking with more than 40 local farms located in the seven metro area counties. The Share Fair also includes cooking demos from an all-star lineup of local chefs, a cookbook swap meet, fun youth activities, and non-profit resource tables. 

March 25th-May 1st, 9:00 AM-6:00 PM | Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm
There’s nothing quite like the vivid colors of tulip fields in the spring, backed by Mt Hood and surrounded by fresh country air. Each year the varieties are arranged in new color patterns as part of the tulip planting rotation. Bring your family (and your dog!) and enjoy 40 acres of tulips. Pack a picnic lunch or purchase food onsite, and make a day of it. Activities include daily wine tasting, cow train rides, and more!
