Morrow County to Host Harvest Festival


The first Morrow County Harvest Festival is coming to the SAGE Center Oct. 4 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event is presented by the Boardman, Heppner, and Irrigon chambers of commerce in conjunction with the SAGE Center – 101 Olson Road, Boardman.

SAGE Center Manager Kalie Davis said there will be a wide variety of fun, fall-themed activities at no cost and the event will give people an opportunity to learn about all the local talent in Morrow and Umatilla county communities.

Vendors range from fresh produce to jams, bread, and pies, to homemade jewelry, coffee, art, and wood work. There will also be food vendors serving lunch as well as frozen yogurt. Beer, wine, and cider tasting available for adults from 12 to 5 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity for all of the Morrow County chambers and the SAGE Center to work together to promote all of the talented individuals in our communities and give them a wonderful event to showcase what they do,” Davis said.

A fall-themed children’s obstacle course, pumpkin painting station, and photo booth will be available throughout the day at the Kids Corner. Free horse and buggy rides will also be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Morrow County Harvest Festival would also like to thank its sponsors. Title sponsors include Threemile Canyon Farms and Abengoa. Lamb Weston ConAgra Foods sponsored the Kids Corner and Cascade Specialties is the event’s vendor sponsor.
