Welcome to AVA’s monthly calendar of events. Take a peek and plan your stay-cation or your next visit to our region. The city’s most notable annual events include historic home tours, outdoor summer concerts and movies under the stars, and the Northwest Art and Air Festival.
*Note for event organizers: If you’d like to have your event listed on the AVA calendar, head over to our contact page and submit your event to us.
Pets and Pajamas is a fun and easy way to get your kids involved with SafeHaven Humane Society, and have a little time for yourselves too. Each night includes pizza, popcorn, a little soda, time spent with our wonderful adoptable animals, and a movie. Kids are welcome to bring a blanket (some will be provided) and a pillow from home if they’d like, though we do ask that toys stay home. Kids will also need to wear closed-toe shoes for animal time. We ask that light-up shoes stay home as they are just too tempting to play with during the movie. Movies will vary from month to month. Titles are available upon request. This is a drop-off event. All adults participating in movie nights are current volunteers or staff who have passed a background check. If your child needs accommodations that require an adult to stay with them during the event, please let us know before registering so that can try to make the necessary adjustments. Space is limited so early registration is encouraged.
