Get ready to hump the fridge, write in your gournal and party Camp Firewood style, because Mayday is throwing a Wet Hot American Summer party Saturday. Enjoy a summer movie marathon, burgers and dogs from the grill, craft beers and a late-night dance party. The fun begins at 6 p.m. and continues through the night. I want you inside me!

Monthly, local LGBTQ magazine CNKY Scene presents its first-ever film festival this weekend. The three-day fest will screen 22 international short and feature films, present Q&As and workshops through Sunday at Know Theater.

Tickets start at $10; a full-access pass is $60.

The Chippendales perform at Belterra Casino Friday.

Find your own Magic Mike.

Travel back in time for a Midsummer Masquerade at Loveland Castle Saturday. Dress in masks and costume, or just sport your most fanciful duds, and enjoy performances by Dante’s Gypsy Circus, Robbin Marks Magic, aerial dancers, live music and more. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door — er, castle gates. The soiree runs 8-11 p.m.

Come to the castle early for an all-ages festival beginning at 11 a.m. Castle Day features food, beer, crafts, entertainment and a great opportunity to saunter the castle grounds.

Considered to be the oldest festival in Cincinnati, Schutzenfest is a German celebration for all ages. The Kolping Center will be packed with authentic food and beer, games, vendors, rides and lots of live entertainment. The fest runs Friday-Sunday and admission is $3. Find details here.

If you missed Thursday’s presentation of Ugandan artist Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine’s multimedia piece, A Missionary Position, Friday night is the last chance. Mwine portrays four different characters onstage to describe the oppression of LGBTQ citizens in Uganda. The performance includes raw video footage and photographs, dealing with a serious subject matter with an upbeat tone. Tickets for the 8 p.m. performance are $20, $14 for members.

Ongoing events include the Vent Haven ConVENTion, the Warren County Fair and more arts and theater suggestions from our To Do page.
