1. A great garage sale

This is the opposite of spring cleaning, but that’s OK. Find treasure that was probably buried behind a cooler and old tennis racquets in someone’s garage the last few years. Browse all those recently rediscovered trinkets at the Northwest’s Largest Garage Sale and Vintage Sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 21 at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds, 17402 N.E. Delfel Road, Ridgefield; $4 to $20. More than 500 booths will be offering up a bit of everything, from the antique to gently used garage sale items. Early bird tickets cost $20, and early birds can arrive at 7 a.m. 360-907-5919 or NWGSales.com

2. In memoriam

James “Jim” Archer died at age 75 in November, and his legacy continues to be felt at Clark College, where he worked as the longtime Archer Gallery director. In his honor, Archer Gallery, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver, is hosting a free birthday celebration to remember the late director’s contributions from 7 to 9 p.m. April 20. Archer, a Vancouver native, taught art and history at Clark College for 23 years. 360-699-6398 or Clark.edu/campus-life/arts-events/archer/index.php

3. An educational jam session

Who knew your teacher was this cool? Yup, teach can school you both inside and outside the classroom. Enjoy music from the Clark County Music Teachers Association  from 4 to 6 p.m. April 21 at the Music Teachers Association Benefit Concert, which raises funds for student scholarships, at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 1206 N.E. Birch St., Camas; free, but donations accepted. Performers include CCMTA teachers, collaborators and award-winning students playing a variety of musical genres and instruments, plus new music from a published CCMTA composer. 360-448-8572 or CityofVancouver.us

4. A wonderful mind

Mentalist Brian Ledbetter will make you wonder if you’re seeing things during his back-to-back performances from 5 to 6 p.m. and 7 to 8 p.m. April 21 at Dave’s Killer Magic Shop, 1707 Main St., Vancouver; $10. Ledbetter can even move objects without touching them. His interactive show combines comedic moments and audience participation. 360-448-9022 or KillerMagicShop.com

5. Talk the talk

Sometimes, just listening to smart people can be life-changing. That’s the driving idea behind the worldwide phenomenon of TED Talks, which also happens to have a local event called TEDxPortland, which runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 21 at Keller Auditorium, 222 S.W. Clay St., Portland; $85 to $200. Speakers include journalist Ann Curry; Dr. Albert Chi, the OHSU inventor of the first bionic arm; Portland Chief of Police Danielle Outlaw; creator Tom Sachs; and Tyrone Poole, a man who emerged from homelessness to start a tech company that helps people find homes.
