Christmas and Holiday Markets in the Columbia River Gorge

Christmas, Holiday Markets and the Innkeepers of the Columbia Gorge Bed and Breakfast Association invite you to celebrate the season and festivities with us. Some of our innkeepers really deck the halls.  Some have a more subdued style.

Hood River, Oregon, becomes a snow globe, a true old-fashioned small town holiday spot. The historic and beautiful downtown is adorned with holiday lights, bows and cheer.

Mosier Country Christmas Fair is Dec. 5 and 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Over 60 vendors, food and drink and tree sales.  Admission is $2 per person and 1 can of food ( human or pet).  Kids under 12 are free.  Photos with Santa from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  There is also a book and bake sale at the Mosier Library (2 blocks east of the school).

As a hush comes over the crowd, the Mayor and all the children will take a deep breath, then blow on the tree to magically bring it blazing alight.  This is THE community family event of the season in Bingen and White Salmon, so don’t miss enjoying the start of the holiday season with your family, friends, visitors,
and the rest of our community.
