The Homer Davenport Community Festival (August 3, 4, & 5) which is coordinated by the Silverton Rotary Club strives to put the 'Homer' back in 'Homer Days.' To that end, we are reaching into the Homer archives of writings, photos and illustrations to bring our community's past to life. We plan to celebrate and honor our heritage! Information about the festival, as well as the 2018 Silverton Hills Strawberry Festival(coming up on June 17, 2018 - Fathers Day), can be found here.
This year's festival promises to be bigger than ever, while keep our uniquely "home town festival" feel. On tap again for this year: Parade, 10K Fun-Run, The Davenport Races, Food Court, Live Music, Lion’s Club Breakfast, Davenport Cartoon Display, Crafts Fair, Fly Wheels Classic Car Cruise-In, Combined SHS Alumni reunion, Tennis Tournament, Beer Garden, and much much more! Watch these pages for updates and future announcements!
The Homer Davenport International Cartoon Contest returns to Silverton! After all, a festival that honors a famous Political Cartoonist seems almost naked without some kind of competition focused on that endeavor. Last year we have substantially increased the prize money award amounts. The new prizes will now be $750, $500, $300 and $200 respectively, with an entry fee of $25.
