Summer Fest

The Historic Trust and its partners are celebrating summer with a series of amazing events, Summer Fest!

Join us throughout the summer for these free community events all held at the Fort Vancouver National Site! Everyone is welcome!

The series opens on Friday, June 14th with music and fun at the OO Howard House, continues with a Thursday, June 20th summer solstice celebration, then we get ready for the third annual Picnic in the Park community picnic celebration on July 6th, and closes on September 14th with the 175th Grant House birthday party. But there’s a lot of other things happening in between these dates!
