Strawberry Festival is Father's Day Tradition
shsfhomer1

Since 1951, Silverton area folks have been enjoying this local tradition. Originally held at the Silverton Hills Grange Hall, we now celebrate in our local Coolidge-McClaine City Park. Held on Fathers Day Sunday, June 18, 2017. Strawberry Festival Hours are 11:00 am until 5:00 pm. We serve up a strawberry delight with biscuits and ice cream and a free second helping of strawberries, all for just $6.00! Strawberry shortcake desert is free for children 2 or under and 80 or over!

Kicking off our Strawberry Festival musical line-up from 12:00 to 2:30 will be The SycoBilly's, a talented group who is hitting the local music scene like a tone of bricks!

And from 2:30 to 5:00 the Nix Trix will be providing their own brand of funky classic rock at The Main Entertainment Stage, located near the covered area in the park!!

All of the live music is family friendly and free to everyone! Bring a blanket and grab a seat on the grass or enjoy one of the many picnic tables available!  Stop by the food court and grab some of the Wooden Nickel's award winning BBQ to eat while you're here!

Chamber Advocacy on Behalf of Business in Oregon

capitol-building


One of the benefits of being a chamber member is knowing that our organization and our State Chamber are advocating on behalf of the businesses in our community and in our state.  The legislature and the legislative process can be a tricky thing to stay on top of for most small businesses.  Too many things all happening at once, keep many business owners from being engaged in the process. 

Each year the Oregon State Chamber in collaboration with local chambers puts together a legislative agenda and list of those concerns that have member businesses intrigued.  The Silverton Chamber of Commerce adopted this legislative agenda and shares it's progress or updates with members weekly.

Here is a link to the latest Legislative Updates from the 2017 Session from our friends at the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce.
