June 12 – Rudi’s Summer Road Trip BBQ in Lake Oswego

Mentioned here a month or so ago, it’s coming this Sunday. From Kyra at Crave Bake Shop:

Rudi’s Gluten Free Bakery is doing a summer road trip and I’ve been helping them coordinate a GF BBQ on Sunday June 12th at Millenium Park in Lake Oswego. It is free and all ages and open to the public and there will be live music and lots of lunchy foods, like BBQ gf hotdogs and hamburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches etc (from them) and desserts (from me). And did I mention that it’s FREE? we’re finalizing the details, so I’ll be sure to get back to you, but it looks like the event will be from 11:30-1:30 PM on the 12th. Flyer to come!

June 12 Midway Farm Event

This is more of a “gluten-free friendly” event than a full-on gluten free event, but if you are interested in visiting a farm this weekend, this one is for you.

Sunday, June 12th 12pm – 3pm Enjoy a summer day on the farm! Stroll around visiting all the chickens, ducks, geese & turkeys. Meet our famous family milk cow Heidi & Dutch Chocolate our Welsh pony. This is a family fun day at Midway Farms. Face painting will be the rage along with a coloring contest. Midway Farms is located midway between Albany and Corvallis on Highway 20.
