Hey Google! What's happening near me this weekend?

Looking for a micro-adventure in your own backyard this weekend? Here are 3 things you can do right now to find it …

1. Hey Google! (Alexa, Siri …)

Ask Your Phone (or SmartHome device). Sometimes the most unexpected adventures are only a question away! Personal assistant technology makes tapping into local soul treks easier than ever.

Alternatively, do a Google Search in your browser for: “what’s happening in (your town) this weekend to fetch a whole heap of interesting goings-on. Click the Search more events link when you get there to do a deeper dive.

2. Check Facebook Events

Start here ⯇ Check events your friends are attending. What sounds like fun? Sip wine while you learn to paint? Catch a concert? Attend a dinner blindfolded in the dark?

Don’t see something you like? Create your own event! Host a foraged feast or an Adventure Diva movie night, or even book your very own chef to teach you and a group of friends to cook something exotic in your very own kitchen.

3. Check Eventbrite

Start here ⯇ Expos, Whisky festivals, paint parties, community meetups and more!

Eventbrite can be a fun way of unearthing a different set of experiences, particularly if you’re looking for opportunities to learn something new or connect with kindred spirits in the business community.
