Looking for something to do this weekend? Here are some fun suggestions for events happening in Fresno and beyond.
The big thing happening this weekend is of course the Rogue Festival. You’ll want to check out the full calendar of events for the annual fringe festival—performances will take place around the Tower District tonight through Sunday. Tonight alone there are 27 shows to choose from!
Also tonight is a Hmong Social Dance Class hosted by the Holistic Cultural and Education Wellness Center in Fresno. That begins at 6 p.m.
Today through Sunday, you can also visit the Home and Garden Show Sale at The Big Fresno Fairgrounds. That takes place today from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Bitwise Industries is hosting its monthly Geek Night starting at 5 p.m. The theme of this kid-friendly event is “Science Fair,” and there will be lots of geeky and fun exhibits on display.
At 6:30 p.m., Raw Fresno is hosting a Plant-Based Class, and after that you can head over to the Crest Theatre for a screening of 1974’s “Death Wish,” starring Charles Bronson, at the historic Crest Theatre.
Saturday is another huge day for the Rogue Festival, with over 44 shows to see.
Before you head to the Tower District, though, make a point to head downtown for the 2018 Fresno Chinese New Year Parade and Festival, which starts at 10 a.m. in Fresno’s Chinatown. This is a rain-or-shine event.
Fans of the Blossom Trail will want to head to Sanger for the 30th Annual Blossom Trail Festival, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
At 6 p.m. is the “A Blast From the Past” Fashion Show. Fresno High students will be modeling vintage clothing from Bebe O’s in Fresno.
On Sunday is—you guessed it—more Rogue. Thirty-six shows to choose from, in fact.
From 12:30 to 5:30 p.m., Tioga-Sequoia will be offering free tours of its brewery.
At 2 p.m., Gazebo Gardens Nursery is hosting a class for those who want to create teeny-tiny terrariums. Beer and coffee will be available.

I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
