CELEBRATE THE ARTS & MUSIC
Welcome to the 15th annual Estacada Summer Celebration! This free festival of music and art takes place Friday night through Saturday night, July 24th and 25th 2015, in the heart of beautiful, and newly designed, downtown Estacada when it is transformed into a magical place of fun for a weekend. Help us celebrate the area’s wealth of art and music for all ages!
ABOUT THE SUMMER CELEBRATION
The Estacada Summer Celebration takes place every year on the fourth weekend in July. It began in 2000 as a small celebration of the Artback Artist Cooperative’ painting of their annual “mural-in-a-weekend” project. Celebrating the new murals is still the main purpose of this festival, but it has grown every year. Starting on Friday night, Broadway street is closed and we bring you live music on the big city stage.
Saturday morning brings fun activities for children with giant puppets, lots of live music, free hands-on art activities for children and adults, a silent art auction, lots of food vendors and the beautiful Broadway Street Art Fair. It is an opportunity for residents and visitors to celebrate this wonderful community through the art.
If you love the arts, don’t miss this rewarding opportunity! We invite you to join us in supporting the arts and our community by volunteering to work with artists and art-lovers in a fun, welcoming atmosphere.
Since 2000, our celebration has been 100% volunteer-driven. Our celebration planning committee is made up of volunteers from all walks of life, skills and interests. We offer opportunities for people with a wide variety of skills and time commitments.
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of one of the premier arts events in this entire region. Volunteer today! Visit the “Contacts” page on this site and send us your information via email or give us a call.
