Virtual Events in Eugene and Beyond

Published: May 12, 2020



The next best thing to being there is virtually being we've rounded up these ways to enjoy your favorite Eugene, Cascades & Coast area artists and places from your couch.

We've curated miles of 360 degree video of hiking trails, rivers and dunes along with local online events, online gallery exhibits, videos of performances and presentations. Many local organizations, small businesses and artists have translated their work into virtual offerings. So from comparing wine tasting notes live or browsing an archive of the best local shows, you are sure to find inspiration. Most of this is free, so be sure to share your favorites and, if you are able, donate to the hosting organization or business.

Remember we all #LoveLane and we are all in this together.
