2015, and it's time for another HOMER

hdcfposter_2015The Homer Davenport Community Festival (August 7, 8, & 9) which is coordinated by the Silverton Rotary Club strives to put the 'Homer' back in 'Homer Days.' To that end, they are reaching into the Homer archives of writings, photos and illustrations to bring the community's past to life. They plan to celebrate and honor our heritage! Information about the festival can be found at www.homerdavenport.com.

This year's festival promises to be bigger than ever, while keeping our uniquely "home town festival" feel.

The Parade starts at 10:00 a.m. Saturday with the route starting at Brown Street - heading south on Water Street, turning at Oak Street and heading north on First Street.  The parade disbands around Roth's Market.
The Barb Rue Memorial Davenport Races begin at 11:00 a.m. on Main Street in downtown Silverton.  All races should be completed by 3:00 p.m.  Don't miss this Homer signature event.
