FRIDAY 

ReSurfaced: The Liberty Build  319 S. Shelby St. Free; 5 p.m. ReSurfaced is at it again, turning an unimpressive lot into one of the hottest party spots in the city. This Friday is West Louisville FoodPort night, a chance to learn about this exciting project, while enjoying drinks, food and music by AMPED (Academy of Music Production and Development). ReSurfaced continues Saturday, and runs next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well. Check their website for the full schedule. 

UofL vs. Western Michigan (NCAA regional tournament) Jim Patterson Stadium Free; 6 p.m. UofL men’s baseball is playing its first game in this year’s NCAA tournament against Western Michigan, and they need everyone to show up and pump up their home-field advantage. The team is on the rise, so you’re guaranteed some quality baseball.

SATURDAY

Butchertown Art Fair (June 4–5) 800 & 900 blocks of E. Washington St. Free; 10 a.m. When you hear the word “Butchertown,” your first thoughts may not be art, but the Butchertown Art Fair is one of the biggest art events in the city. There will be over 100 artists from throughout the nation in attendance, as well as live music, food trucks and locally-brewed drinks. And afterward, you can stroll through the historic, tree-lined neighborhood of 19th-century homes.

SUNDAY

Derby City Sisters Drag Bingo Play (Louisville) $5; 7:30 p.m. This isn’t your grandmother’s bingo (although she can come too). This is a night of bingo with everyone’s favorite drag queens, the Derby City Sisters. This month’s bingo benefits Jeffersonville Pride (the first pride festival in Southern Indiana). It’s also a pajama party so you can get six extra bingo cards if you show up in your jammies, and six more bingo cards if you bring a non-persishable or personal care item for AIDS Interfaith Ministries of Kentuckiana.

Arts & Culture Day 2016 Louisville Waterfront Park (Brown Forman Lawn) Free; 11 a.m. Get some art and culture in your life by attending the Arts & Culture Alliance’s biggest event of the year. It’s a hands-on event for all ages that includes art making, performances, prizes and food trucks. And pretty much every local group that supports arts and culture in this city will be in attendance, including theatre groups, museums and plenty more.
