Clackamas County Fair and Rodeo

Of course August holds the signature event as the annual Clackamas County Fair returns. Happening this year August 15-19, the fair promises to be a fun time for the whole family. From rides and exhibitions to the annual rodeo each night, the fair is an annual tradition for many residents and visitors. 

Swan Island Dahlia Festival

The summer events wrap up with the Swan Island Dahlia Festival. This signature event opens up acres upon acres of fields at Swan Island Dahlias, the largest grower of these amazing flowers in the US. Walk through nearly 40 acres filled with more than 370 dahlia varieties. From small, delicate yet beautiful blooms to massive flowers larger than your head, the display is nothing short of spectacular. The fields are open August through September each year, with the festival taking place the last weekend in August and first weekend in September each year. 

From adrenaline (and octane) fueled fun to experiencing firsthand why Canby is known as The Garden Spot, there's a lot to see and do in this small community after visiting one of the many events in town. View more things to do in Canby.
