Come to the Vista House this summer for song circles!
Voices will join together at Vista House this summer.
Oregon State Parks invites the public to enjoy sing-alongs at a series of free Song Circle events on select Fridays at the historic building, located at Crown Point State Scenic Corridor in the Columbia River Gorge.
Song Circles are scheduled from 7-9 p.m. June 24, July 22, Aug. 26, and Sept. 23. These “old-fashioned campfire” events, hosted in partnership with Portland FolkMusic Society, are an opportunity to share park stories and rekindle the art of communal song circles and storytelling.
Sing along, play along, or just sit back and enjoy folk and campfire songs. Some of the musical works will harken back to the Gorge’s natural and cultural history.
The events are open to all ages, and a special children’s sing-along event is scheduled for Aug. 26. Please bring a chair for seating.
From Hood River, take Interstate 84 westbound and turn toward Corbett at exit 22. Follow Northeast Corbett Hill Road and the historic highway until you reach Vista House.
Vista House is located about 20 miles east of Portland on the Historic Columbia River Highway, near Corbett. Vista House is open daily in the summer from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
