Mt Hood Huckleberry Festival & Barlow Trail Days
August 18 @ 10:00 am - August 19 @ 5:00 pm
2018 is the 34th annual event. Celebrate the history of the first Oregon Trail emigrants to camp in the foothills of Mount Hood. By 1890, Samuel Welch (for which Welches is named) had built a hotel, and encouraged tourism to the mountain. He began a festival that continued until the Great Depression. This festival was reborn by the Cascade Geographic Society. Modern events include a Native American salmon bake, storytelling, music and dancing, a watermelon launch, plus enjoying all things huckleberries!
