Five events to check out this week: July 26, 2021


There is plenty to do this week, but watch out for air quality issues as we continue to suffer from dense smoke as a result of regional wildfires. Health officials recommend staying indoors when the air quality is this bad, so hopefully the air clears and our region’s amazing outdoor events can continue. 

Always check with venues and promoters for any changes.

Here are five events to check out this week, some indoors and one that is virtual.
