We Are Bethel
June 1, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
We Are Bethel returns this summer as Bethel’s biggest event of the year. Join us at Petersen Barn on Saturday, June 1st from 12:00 – 4:00pm (870 Berntzen Road).
We Are Bethel is a fun community event featuring music, food, games and fun! At our last general meeting, we got input from attendees on the events they’d like to see at We Are Bethel. As a result, a diverse event with something for everyone has taken shape.
Music & Dances from Bethel Schools and Community
We’ll be featuring music and dance performances from members of our own neighborhood. Be sure to catch the Meadow View Jazz Band, the Cascade Middle School Jazz Band and Choir, the Folkloric Dance Troupe, and the Son Jarocho Band.
We still have opportunities for other performers. If you’d like to perform, contact us via email at email@example.com.
Don’t go hungry! We’ll have Porky’s Piglet and Vegimoto Vegetarian Grill with a variety of lunch options. Then grab a little dessert with shaved ice from Sweet Bay Shaved Ice. Fun fact: Sweet Bay uses all biodegradable products and their syrups are corn syrup-free!
Games and Activities
If nothing else, We Are Bethel is a great time for the kids. We’ve got plenty of games to keep them entertained. Look for a variety of races with sacks, eggs, balloons and more, as well as a variety of carnival game booths.
For the adults, we’ve got a raffle! Gift baskets featuring tools and more will be raffled off to support the Active Bethel Citizens organization so we can continue to do amazing work in the community. Many of the funds we spend to improve our neighborhood can be matched by the city, so your money goes twice as far!
Free Clothes & Jacket Swap
Closets full of clothes your kids have outgrown? Marie Kondo-ing your house? Bring your clean summer clothes and jackets that you no longer want and swap for something new. You do not need to bring something in order to take something home, but the more people bring things, the bigger a success this will be!
Bethel is full of amazing organizations. At We Are Bethel, we’ll feature many of them with booths. You’ll find Sponsors Mentorship Program, Nature Discovery School, the Eugene Education Association, Huerto de la Familia, Eugene Vineyard Church, and a Mexican art creation activity booth.
If your organization is interested in having a booth at We Are Bethel, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details and to reserve your spot.
