Enjoy Exciting Annual Events Throughout Oregon

There is no better way to get to know a new area than by attending an annual community event. Windsurfers are drawn to Gorge WindFest in Hood River every summer, while the Gem Faire brings people to Eugene in November who have an appreciation for fine jewelry, crystals, precious and semi-precious gemstones and more. In October, the Gorge Fruit & Craft Fair brings family fun to Hood River once more.

The Lincoln City Cultural Center hosts numerous annual events, including a Coffee Concert Series and the Lincoln City Earth Day Festival.

In July, the Oregon County Fair brings 12 performance stages, 700 artisans, food vendors and more to Veneta. Other popular county fairs include Wallowa County Fair in Enterprise in August, Malheur County Fair in Ontario in early August and the Baker County Fair and Panhandle Rodeo in Halfway at the end of August/beginning of September.

The Native American Crafts Fair brings crowds to Eugene in mid-December to enjoy basket making, painting, beading and graphic arts. And as the month progresses, cities across Oregon take part in holiday light events. But the winter celebrations don’t stop there. Oregon WinterFest begins in mid-February in Bend with ice sculptures, food, and music. 

Gorge Windfest

Hosted by the Columbia Gorge Windsurfing Association, Gorge Windfest is windsurfing festival held annually in Hood River.

The festival, a Columbia River Gorge staple since 1987, features demonstrations, concerts, windsurfing lessons, and swap meets throughout each summer.

One of the main events, the King of the Hook hosted in August, sees instructors show-off their skills on the river.

Other features include family-fun events helping you learn how to windsurf, as well as the Beach Bash BBQ, and Rio Vista Grand Slam.

There’s Always Something Going On At The Lincoln County Fairground!

Lincoln County’s community spirit is on display year-round at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds. Set near downtown and just off the waterfront, the fairgrounds are adjacent to the high school and within walking distance of much of the town.

The fairgrounds are the home of the annual Lincoln County Fair, a summer event which brings the community together and showcases the area’s riches, from agriculture to fishing to businesses and non-profits. The event features more than 100 vendors plus dozens of musicians, entertainers, and locals who enter their produce and creations in open class exhibits. Highlights include monster truck mud-slinging and a huge bouncy house.

Other events at the fairgrounds include health screenings, parties, conventions, the Saturday summer famers market, dances, shows, and carnivals.
