The Columbia River Gorge region combines one of the world's greatest rivers with some of the most spectacular mountain scenery to be found in the United States. The town of Hood River has become the center for wind surfing in the Northwest, while skiers can choose among three locations: Ski Bowl, Timberline and Mount Hood Meadows.

Events within the region:

Second Saturday at WAAAM

Event Details:

A visit to WAAAM on a Second Saturday is bound to make you realize just how easy life is these days. People don't even give it a thought, but in 1917, it could have taken a half an hour just to get the oil warm enough to crank the car!

Hood River County Blossom Festival

Event City: Hood River
Event Details:
Nothing is prettier in the spring than fruit trees in bloom, and the Hood River Valley Blossom Festival, now over 50 years old, celebrates the arrival of spring in style. Hood River Valley, which spans the north slope of Mount Hood to the south shore of the Columbia River Gorge, is the largest pear-growing region in Oregon, producing 50% of the nation's winter pear crop. It's also home to an abundance of cherry and apples orchards. The Blossom Festival is a perfect opportunity for the winter-weary to visit the Hood River Valley for a dose of Oregon's springtime sunshine. A gorgeous drive along the loop of the Hood River County Scenic Tour Route is the centerpiece of the longtime celebration, and winds through the Festival's activities at over 20 different venues. Events typically include a Blossom Fest Craft Show, Blossom Fest Quilt Show, a farm and pansy party, a grange blossom dinner, and a fire department all-you-can-eat breakfast. Visitors can also get a real taste of the Gorge at several wine and beer-tasting events.
