Community Parade

Help us kick off Cherry Fair day with a community parade.

  • Visit the Parade page for more info and signups.
  • Have any questions about participating in the parade? Please contact Timur by email or phone 541-701-1606.


We rely on our sponsors to pull off a fun fair every year, and we have some excellent opportunities for business and individual sponsors alike.

Volunteer Opportunities

As an all-volunteer one-day event, we rely on volunteers to get things done.

The work is easy, the crew is fun to work with, and you may commit to as little as 10 minutes or as much time as all day — whatever time you have to share before or on Cherry Fair day to:

  • Decorate the Cherry Fairy float
  • Direct parade participants
  • Help with old-fashioned games and prize contests
  • Set up or clean up the fairgrounds
  • Empty trash cans or stock paper supplies
  • Sell Quilt Raffle tickets or commemorative items
  • Help us keep the crowd happy

Please contact Cindy Edwards by email or phone 541-805-8563 for more info.
