Coffin Race Graveyard

Straight from the crypt, the Coffin Race cars will be on display to eulogize the howling glory of races past. Find the coffins in the Broadway Streatery near Broadway and Willamette.

Roaming Spirits

Keep on the lookout for these roaming spirits spreading bubbles from toils and troubles on your spooky day.

  • Watch out for the giant, friendly monster! Flamebuoyant Productions reaches sky-high to provide large-scale family fun.
  • The last of the spirits are a surprise, see if you can find them hiding in disguise.

Fall Program Changes

Cultural Services Community Programs has made the difficult decision to cancel our traditional EUGfun fall programs including Coffin Races, based on current public health recommendations on group gatherings as well as budgetary constraints resulting from the challenges of the pandemic.

We have been hard at work, however, adapting and creating opportunities for meaningful connection in this time of isolation and uncertainty. By utilizing online platforms, practicing physical distancing and providing important paid opportunities for our community’s talented artists, we offer continued opportunities to connect through free shared experiences that we hope will introduce the sparks of joy and inspiration we all need right now.

Please follow us here and on Instagram and Facebook to find out more about our upcoming programs.

Brought to you by the City of Eugene with support from these local businesses. Thank you to our sponsors for making Eugene a great place to live, work and play!
