There are more than 220 fun things to do this weekend in Eastern Iowa. Below we highlight some of our best bets. What will you be doing this weekend?
Dustin Diamond - Dustin Diamond’s most memorable role was that of the nerdy Samuel “Screech” Powers on the television show Saved by the Bell, a role he played for close to thirteen years from its beginning as Good Morning, Miss Bliss(1988–89) through its final incarnation, Saved by the Bell: The New Class(1994–2000).
Rosanne Cash - She has recorded eleven No. 1 singles, blurring the genres of country, rock, roots, and pop. She has received one grammy and twelve grammy nominations, among other awards and accolades.
Morgan Thorson - In her acclaimed new work called Spaceholder Festival, Minneapolis choreographer Morgan Thorson and a stellar cast of performers excavate personal history and collective memory through movement, exposing the lies and convictions that shape the narratives we tell ourselves.
AIRBHGPALOOZA - And so we proudly announce AIRBHGAPALOOZA, our first ever festival dedicated to the Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God. Perhaps a beer in his honor will ease his wrath.
Iowa UFOs with Paranormal Investigator Terry Fisk - Terry Fisk, author of “The Iowa Road Guide to Haunted Locations” presents Iowa UFOs. He discusses the top UFO sightings of Iowa, the Midwest, and the world. Fisk will share photos, case histories, and eyewitness accounts and talk about some of the cases he has personally investigated.
Yelawolf + Rittz + Trouble Andrew - Envision a humid world of slow-rolling Monte Carlos and slaughter houses; meth labs and rusting Mossberg’s, inked up arms and haircuts that look like they’ve been chopped by hatchets. Trunk Muzik. Southern Pine trees, smoking pine, and pine boxes. Call him Catfish Billy or Yelawolf, just don’t go make him go pop the trunk on you.
Bluegrass and BBQ - By October, the weather will be cooling down outside but things will be heating up inside at Shores Event Center! Join us for an intimate evening of bluegrass music and BBQ featuring the award winning Henhouse Prowlers and Smokin’ Bonz BBQ.
24-Hour Comics Day – 24-Hour Comics Day is an event held worldwide which challenges artists and writers to create a full 24-page comic in 24 consecutive hours. The Iowa City Comics Creators Club will be hosting their third 24-Hour Comics Day, once again at Critical Hits Games in Iowa City.
Circle of Ash: The Haunt - ‘The Haunt‘ is the bread and butter of what you expect when visiting a haunted house in October. This show is our high intensity, fast paced, adrenaline-pumping, scream soliciting, fear inspiring haunted attraction!
Meat Loaf – The concert is one of his many stops across the nation as part of his Mad Mad World Tour in support of his newly released album, “Hell in a Handbasket.” The singer-songwriter is perhaps best known for such tunes as “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” and “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).”
