Summer is coming, and along with the sun comes countless celebrations around the state! Get out your calendar, grab your sash, and get ready!
Century of Action has a very exciting events coming soon. May 31st from 6 to 8pm is the Statewide Exhibit Launch at the Oregon Historical Society. Tickets are available at the Century of Action website now! I will be on hand with sashes if you have not had the opportunity to buy yours!
Looking ahead to the next few months there are quite a few fun events happening around the state, and each one of them is sash worthy. Let me tell you about a few of the big ones.
Portland Rose Festival
Late May and early June are packed full of Portland Rose Festival events including the Grand Floral Parade on Saturday June 9th. If you plan on attending be sure to bring your sash and a camera along to capture the moment!
The 30th annual Eugene Celebration will be taking place August 24-26 in downtown Eugene. The three day long celebration has countless sash worthy moments!
This year the Pendleton Round-Up is September 12-15 out in Pendleton Oregon. We know the Rodeo Queens will be wearing their sashes, why not wear yours too?
The 52nd annual Scandinavian Festival in Junction City is August 9-12. Located just North of Eugene, the Scandinavian Festival is packed with cultural foods, music, clothing and dance. If you haven’t been, it’s worth the drive!
Oregon State Fair
The State Fair is August 24-September 3rd. Celebrate Oregon, and Suffrage!
In addition to all of these great events don’t forget about all the 4th of July celebrations. I know Independence and Medford go all out for Independence Day! Also, check out your county fair this summer to have more fun times in your sash!
