ClaremontVID_Wallop-2015_C22Looking for something entertaining to do near the Inland Empire this weekend? Claremont welcomes out-of-town visitors and Southern California locals to enjoy our arts, music and outdoor events. From Friday Nights Live to the Midsummer Shakespeare Festival, our calendar is chock full of rousing events and annual festivals.

There’s something fun to do for everyone. The weekly Claremont Farmers and Artisans Market every Sunday is the largest of its kind in the region. For arts and crafts lovers, there’s the monthly First Saturday Art Walk and the Village Venture Arts & Crafts Faire in October.

Families flock to events such as Things That Go Bump in the Night at California Botanic Garden in October and Inland Pacific Ballet’s The Nutcracker in December. And nature enthusiasts can celebrate and discover the beauty of various native plants at the Annual Wild Flower Show and Festival in April and other botanic garden events.

Pride at the Garden: Queering CalBG’s Collections |

California Botanic Garden |
1500 N. College Ave., Claremont |
Join Garrett, one of CalBG’s botany graduate students, for an intro to queer botany and a tour of the garden’s botanical collections. Stops on the tour will highlight queer plant stories from CalBG’s archives and invite participants to (re)imagine botany from queer and decolonial perspectives. During the tour you will look closely at living plants, learn the stories of historical collections, and thoughtfully consider the field of botany’s past, present, and future.| ‍
The tour will remain on flat, paved surfaces and can be adjusted based on mobility or accessibility requests. This is not an exclusively LGBTQ+ space and everyone interested in the subject is invited to participate! |
