Celebrate Fall at Hood River Valley Harvest Fest, the Columbia River Gorge’s Biggest Harvest Celebration
– More than 120 farmers, artisan food producers, wineries, cideries and artists will gather along the Columbia River from October 12-14 to celebrate the region’s bounty –

With booths overflowing with Hood River Valley specialties ranging from apples to wine, the 36th annual Hood River Valley Harvest Fest is the place to be for all things autumn in the Hood River Valley. 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 original local arts and crafts from the Gorge Artists collective and others.

New for 2018 is a wine area curated by the Hood River Downtown Wine Alliance, featuring wines from several local vineyards. It will join longtime favorite vendors from around the Fruit Loop and beyond who will be offering pears, apples, pumpkins, and flowers, plus pies, jams, cured meats and more. Adding to the Hood River flavor are local artisans with unique art, crafts and jewelry.

Fun live events include a giant pumpkin carving exhibition, local music and fruit pie-eating contests that are open to festival goers ages 15 and up on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Youngsters will love the kids’ activity area, which includes a rock wall, bouncy houses, face painting and other activities.

Extend your Stay

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.
