Spring Forward and Plan Ahead: Final

Just when you thought it was Spring....

This morning, the Sumpter Valley Dredge woke up to four inches of snow.   This was very disappointing after a beautiful, 60 degree Sunny day on Tuesday.  However, being pushed back inside by the weather gives us a chance to share with you the last installment of the “Spring Forward and Plan Ahead” Blog series.

Besides all of the many things to see and do at the park and around the area; there are also many events occurring over the summer that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Sumpter Flea Markets

The sign says it all!

The City of Sumpter hosts the famous Sumpter Flea Markets over the three Summer Holiday Weekends; Memorial day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day.  There is a little bit of something for everyone at the flea market; good food, music, and vendors selling interesting and extraordinary things.  It’s a good time for adults and kids.  Bring the family out to explore.

Hell’s Canyon Motorcycle Rally

Whether you like to ride or like to look; The Hell’s Canyon Motorcycle Rally is the place to be for all motorcycle lovers.  Starting June 8th,  participate in the Rally by registering online at http://www.hellscanyonrally.com/ or just come out to join in the festivities and take in the sights.

Haines Stampede

"Hold ON!"

With Independence Day falling in the middle of the week, you can check out the Sumpter Flea Market and then stay for the Fourth of July events in Haines.  With festivities, the rodeo, and even Fireworks, it’s a great way to spend the holiday.

Miner’s Jubilee

Celebrating Baker County’s mining roots, the Miner’s Jubilee boasts tastes of the old and the new.  Complete with parades, carnival, music, mining demonstrations, and great food it’s Baker County at its finest!


These are just a few of the events going on this year in the area.   There are more to be announced as we get closer to summer.  You can keep up to date with new events or updates by checking out the following sites:





Looking forward to seeing you out here!
