With it’s beautiful scenery, mild climates, and vibrant communities, the Columbia Gorge region is alive with events and festivals all year long. With so many aspects of the Gorge to celebrate – art, wine & beer, huckleberries, spring, fall, cabin fever, Native Americans, fish, cars, whitewater, wind sports, lavender, Thursday, Friday, Saturday… – it’s often impossible to decide which event to attend. The good news is that the distances are small and the choices are many, so it’s easy to attend more than one or two in a day.
The Gorge is also a preferred location for weddings, family reunions, company picnics and meetings, just about anything that brings people together to celebrate life and living in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Here are some of our favorites that maintain a small atmosphere along with their big event appeal:
