Canby is always filled with fun events in the summer. Experience many of them during Canby's Big Weekend, a fun filled three-day stretch the last weekend in August, the 25-27. We've rounded up all of them for a convenient guide to all the fun!
If someone threw a block party and invited the entire city, that's essentially what Canby's Big Night Out is. There are children's activities, live music, dancing, a bouncy houses and an arcade truck. And that's maybe half of what the evening holds! The fun is centered around NW 2nd Ave and N Grant St from 6–11pm.
The Swan Island Dahlia Festival is one of Mt. Hood Territory's top summer events! Starting at the beginning of August and running through September, the annual celebration at the nation's largest dahlia grower is filled with classes, music, food and other fun surrounded by beautiful blooms of unimaginable variety.
The weekly Canby Farmers Market pulls out all the stops for Canby's Big Weekend, including extended hours from 9am–1pm. Located downtown on NW 2nd Ave and N Holly St, the market brings together area growers, makers and crafters where you can find some truly wonderful local treasures.
Car lovers, be sure to be downtown Saturday morning for Cutsforth's Cruise In! Hot rods, muscle cars, roadsters and vintage trucks will all be on display at Wait Park from 9am–2pm. These are some true automotive works of art.
