Weekender: Bellingham events for September 21-23

Commercial Street Night Market

This is the last Night Market of the season, and it’s gonna be a doozy. Bike polo, sea shantys, a climbing wall, and karaoke, alongside local vendors and the Uisce beer garden. Friday from 6pm-10pm on Commercial Street between Magnolia and Holly.

SeaFeast

The name kinda says it all unless you, like me, see “SeaBeast,” in which case we will both *probably* be disappointed. SeaFeast encompasses a huge array of activities, so be sure to check their website for complete info. In a nutshell, there’s poetry, art, and film downtown on and seafood galore at the harbor on Friday.  Saturday brings demonstrations, activities, music and, of course, more food.  Friday noon-11, Saturday 10am-8pm, various locations.

Your Vote Counts Block Party

Indivisible is throwing a party, and you’re invited! Grab a brew at the beer garden and chat with the candidates and reps from organizations tabling the event. There’ll be music and dance, and you can even register to vote. Sunday 1pm-3pm at Depot Square Market.

Lyrics Born with Bukue One and All Star Opera

I like it, I love it! Bay area rapper and “serial collaborator” Lyrics Born always puts on a great show, full of melodic funk. He’s touring in support of a new album, Quite a Life, and supported by Seattle hiphop collective All Star Opera and fellow California veteran Bukue One. Sure to be a sweaty good time. Sunday 9pm at the Wild Buffalo.

Weekender for September 14-16

Sippin’ on Cider: A Bellingham Cider Tasting Festival

Lost Giants Cider is hosting Sippin’ on Cider, a festival to benefit Shifting Gears. There’ll be nine cideries participating, plus food trucks, music, outdoor living rooms, games, and a photo booth. $25 at the door gets you all that, an 8 ounce tasting glass, and three fill-ups. Friday, 6pm-10pm, 1200 Meador Ave.

Maneken Hand, Dreadful Children, Gallowmaker ItchyKitty, Adventur

Waterfront music booker and N7E Records founder Robby Cleary died unexpectedly this week. This would have been a great show in any event, but now it’s also a chance to honor the memory of a true and tireless punk believer. Waterfront Tavern, 521 Holly St., Saturday at 9pm, $7.

Cascadia Skillshare and Barter Gathering

Go up the country and learn “practical new-fangled and old-timey skills. Bee keeping, yarn spinning, native plant foods, fermentation, gardening wisdoms, livestock care, food preservation and much more.” There’ll be hourly classes and a field to barter your stuff in, plus music, food and beer.  Admission is $20 a day or $35 for both days, and you can camp Saturday night for an extra $10. Saturday/Sunday, 10am-5pm, on north Lake Whatcom at 2582 North Shore Rd.
