This will be the 60th Anniversary for the Oakridge Tree Planting Festival. Down through the years the festival has evolved and changed with the changing times. In previous years the festival was indicative of the logging industry that supported the towns of Oakridge and Westfir.
Now, the festival seems to be more about growth and renewal. The festival continues to have a Grand Parade on Saturday, a Talent Show and Coronation of the Tree Planting Princesses, a Community Arts Fair, a Quilt Show, Mini Olympics for the young ones, Dinner Theater, a 10K Run/2.5 mile walk, a Chicken BBQ sponsored by Kiwanis, the Planting of the Trees and many more fun, festive celebratory, historical events!
