The organization is hosting a monthly day of events called Third Saturday Activities and the next one will be this Saturday, March 16. The monthly day of events will continue through October.

As part of the day, Cane Hill is starting its own Farmers' Market, which will be located in the grassy area behind the Historic Cane Hill office (Methodist Manse building). About nine vendors are signed up so far for the market, both food and craft vendors. Eggs, honey and beefalo will be available at the Farmers' Market on Saturday.

Other activities will be going on at the area next to Historic Cane Hill College, and these include a beanbag tournament and live music.

The band Amity Road will present a concert Saturday night on the platform in front of the college. Visitors should bring their own blankets and chairs to sit on. If it's raining, visitors can bring tents or umbrellas. The plan is to have the concert, rain or shine, Sheffield said, as long as conditions are safe for everyone.
