PICK OF THE WEEK: Thursday, Sept. 21 – Wednesday, Sept 27: This year at the Joslyn Castle Art and Literary Festival, women are at the center of attention. As Nebraska celebrates its sesquicentennial (150 years), Joslyn Castle celebrates the women artists and authors who’ve helped shape our culture. The festivities kick off Thursday night with a reading by Nebraska State Poet Twyla M. Hansen and will continue through Wednesday, with special events happening all weekend. For a complete list of all the fun, go here.
Friday, Sept. 22: It’s another night market at Midtown Crossing’s Turner Park, and this time, it’s pumpkin themed. With a vendor village, mini food festival, outdoor games, live music brought to you by Hear Nebraska, and moonlight yoga with yogi Lora McCarville, this is one hell of a way to start the weekend. Get to Night Market: The Pumpkin Edition, and see what all the fuss is about. The best part? It’s free and you can bring your fur babies and your human babies if you want. It starts at 6 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m. so there’s plenty of time to check it all out. For more information, head here.

While there may not be any cheap seats here, you are getting to see two country music legends at once. Plus, this is the first time Faith has toured in 10 years, so see her while you can.
