Chamber Events: Hood River Holidays
Hood River, the Holiday Town of Oregon
Tis the season and Hood River, Oregon is the place to be. Known as the “Holiday Town of Oregon,” downtown Hood River is ready again this year to transform into a classic holiday setting. Along the main street, visitors will find beautifully lit holiday trees, decorated storefronts, and lots of unique shopping options—including handmade items, beautiful clothing, jewelry, sports gear, books and art, and local wines, jams, and jellies. The kick-off party happens the first Friday of December, with an old-fashioned parade, lighting of the community tree, caroling, cocoa and cookies, and, of course, Santa. Great restaurants are available throughout downtown Hood River, along with local craft beers, and six wine-tasting rooms, all within an 8-block radius. This event is generously sponsored by the Hood River County Chamber of Commerce, Ryan’s Juice, Mount Hood Railroad, Columbia State Bank, CenterPointe Bank, Ground Coffee, Providence Memorial Hospital, and the City of Hood River.
