Join us on July 3rd for Silverton Day, great food and drink, live music and a beautiful fireworks display, planned by the Oregon Garden Foundation & presented by Roth’s Fresh Markets.
We received great feedback on our new and more intimate fireworks show in 2013 and plan to host the same type of show in 2014. The fireworks display will begin around 10pm.
In response to the tree growth, fire hazard and safety issues, the fireworks display will again be held on the hill located just west of the Oregon Garden Resort’s main lodge, and will include a show that is designed just for this venue. The Oregon Garden Foundation has worked with Western Display Fireworks to utilize new technologies, often reserved for sporting events held in indoor stadiums, to create a more intimate show and up-close viewing opportunities. Because of this, the fireworks will be best viewed from within The Oregon Garden, namely the Silverton Market Garden and Axis Garden, and views from outside areas will be obstructed. This intimate show also allows for guests to be quite close to the fireworks launch site, which could impact guests with noise sensitivities.
For our ADA guests, we suggest parking at the Visitor Center and viewing the fireworks from the Bosque.
6 – 8pm: Dead Wood Standing of Silverton, playing loud, fast Americana with a slight garage rock/punk vibe.
8 – 10pm: JSwift Band of Salem, playing a mix of modern country with alternative and classic rock influences.
