Wooden Boat Festival returns

VIDA: For the last two years the McKenzie’s Woden Boat Festival has been canceled because of COVID restrictions. But this year it returns on April 23, 2022, at Eagle Rock Lodge which is located at 49198 McKenzie Hwy, Vida, Oregon. The Lodge is located on the McKenzie River between milepost 34 and 35 East of Eugene, Or. Come, relax, and learn about the river and the history of this influential double-ended boat from 10 am – 4 pm. Admission is free.

The McKenzie River Guides Association will have available a BBQ lunch which is a fundraiser for their free PFD program and for boat landing maintenance and restoration. You can bring your wooden river boat to the Lodge at 9:00 am. For those that want to do a short float on the river, people will gather at Finn Rock Landing on Quartz Creek Rd. and will launch for that boat landing at 9:00 am, arriving at the lodge at 10 a.m.
