Columbia City, OR- The Columbia City Celebration is a 5th Annual Columbia County tradition which takes place September 16th from 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM. If you’re new to the area, you must check it out if you’ve never been. If it’s been awhile, you don’t want to miss out this year.
You can start your Saturday off with a homemade strawberry pancake breakfast held at the Community Hall which starts at 7:00 AM this year due to an expected large crowd. Many locals, your neighbors gather to talk as they wait for their breakfast so the Community Hall is filled with chatter. Other ongoing events are the car show, book sale, local vendors many selling handmade items and a silent auction. The Elks will be on site for children’s visual screening held inside the library. Children who visit the library will be given a free book. A special treat this year is the Renaissance/MidEvil Reiancments will also take place to provide some entertainment. Most of all it’s a day to celebrate Columbia City with your local neighbors. The event serves a dual purpose also as a fundraiser for the Columbia City Library. Be sure to follow their Facebook page to see what’s going on.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is also on site to answer your questions and local Artists from the Columbia Arts Guild will be selling their local art. President of the Columbia Art Guild, Teresa Knight said she participated last year in the event but this year, “The Columbia Arts Guild has been participating at the Columbia City Celebration over the years at different capacities, but this year they are more involved and in addition to the Art Show a few of the artists will have booths with their work for sale! Pine needle baskets, carved gourds, ceramics, paintings, cards and much more!”
