Celebrate Hood River’s harvest season at the 35th annual Hood River Valley Harvest Fest on October 13-15, 2017, presented by Pacific Power and produced by the Hood River County Chamber of Commerce. This old-fashioned fall festival brings together more than 120 vendors offering local produce and food products, plus arts and crafts, wine, cider and beer tastings. Held along the scenic Hood River waterfront, this is the Columbia River Gorge’s biggest celebration of the region’s incredible fall bounty.
Festival-goers can load up on boxes of Hood River favorites, including fresh pears, apples, pumpkins, berries and flowers, and a wide variety of local foods, from pies and jams to smoked salmon and chocolate-covered cherries. Hood River Valley Harvest Fest is also a great place to get a jump-start on holiday shopping, thanks to numerous local artisans.
Youngsters will love the kids’ activity area, complete with bouncy houses, face painting and other activities. All festival-goers ages 15 and up are invited to take part in the popular pie eating contests on Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.
And, just a friendly reminder, pets are not allowed at the event.

Hood River Valley Harvest Fest takes place during autumn, one of Hood River’s showcase seasons. The summer crowds have dissipated, fall harvest is in full swing, and the trees in the Hood River Valley are turning beautiful fall colors. Visitors can easily turn Harvest Fest into a long vacation weekend by going apple picking along the Hood River County Fruit Loop, biking the scenic Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail from Hood River to Mosier, and feasting on farm-to-table dinners at local restaurants. For ideas of all you can do in the Gorge this fall, go to hoodriver.org/i-love-hood-river/.
Beer lovers who want to go to the source can visit more than 10 independent breweries on both sides of the Columbia River. Breweries in the Gorge (BIG) offers a map and passport on its website, breweriesinthegorge.com. For more top Hood River autumn activities, go to hoodriver.org/hood-rivers-top-fall-activities.
While the Eagle Creek Fire did not directly impact the town of Hood River, area businesses have been greatly affected by the 3-week closure of I-84 (now re-opened in both directions.) Right now, patronizing our local businesses, as well as those of other Gorge communities, is a great way for people to support the Gorge.
