Too Big To Miss carnival rides1

It truly has something for everybody, with events and activities that are classic and cutting-edge. Where else could you, in one day, go to a lumberjack competition, sit through a magical journey, enter a pie eating contest, ride the Big Sling, taste Oregon’s finest wines and see The Judds in concert?

  • Lumberjack action returns Aug. 26-28 with the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series. Both professional and collegiate competitors will compete in front of ESPN cameras for championship honors.
  • Don’t miss the dogs! The Northwest K9  Challenge National Championships runs Aug. 30-Sept. 5. Nothing is too X-Treme for these canines.
