One of the best things about summer time in Oregon’s Willamette Valley is the plethora of festivals and fairs. If you want to watch colorful hot air balloons launch in the morning and then glow at night, admire vintage cars and airplanes, shop the wares of Northwest artisans, and listen to some great music, don’t miss the Northwest Air & Art Festival. Held at Timber Linn Memorial Park in Albany, Oregon Aug. 21-23, this annual event (usually the fourth weekend in August) is family-friendly, free, and filled with fun.
Albany Air & Art Festival The Northwest Art and Air Festival began in 2000 and is Albany’s signature event of the summer. With its pretty lake, picnic areas, playground, ball fields, disc golf, dog run, and open space, 100-acre Timber Linn Memorial Park is a popular destination on any summer day, and especially ideal for a three-day festival.
It is adjacent to Albany Municipal Airport and the Blue Ox RV Park is close, too. Weather permitting, the festivities begin at 6:45 am each day when the south end of the park turns into a launchpad for some 35 hot air balloons (get there early to watch the crews inflate these kaleidoscopic giants).
