Events are the life blood of a society. They are occasions that gather people together united in a common theme, cause or celebration. Events bring people together to pay tribute to their heroes, to raise awareness of a cause or to witness history in the making. Events can be as simple as a child's kindergarten graduation or as dramatic as the Super Bowl. It doesn't matter what your preference is or even if it is constantly evolving. What does matter is that you are "experiencing" something that will give you great satisfaction and a lifetime of memories.

This list represents the EventCrazy staff choices of the events for the week. If you live nearby, any of these would be an excellent way to spend your weekend. If it is not geographically possible, you are encouraged to search the site for the personal experience that is just right for you. We hope that you find EventCrazy to be an excellent tool as you search for ways to create your own lifelong memories each and every week.
