Vancouver Spotlight

Vancouver, WA Events

Our calendar is chock-full with the original events that keep Vancouver USA humming all year round. Check out annual favorites like the Recycled Arts Festival, the Vancouver Brewfest, Independence Day at Fort Vancouver, and Three Days of Aloha.

One of the biggest parties in town is the Clark County Fair. Known here as “summer's best party,” the Clark County Fair offers a 10-day whirlwind of fair food favorites, carnival rides, furry friends, and nationally renowned entertainment. Livablity.com even rates the fair as one of the Top 10 in the Nation!

Of course, with Vancouver's rich history, many of our events are a true blast from the past. Vintage Baseball, Lantern Tours, and Campfires and Candlelight all bring history to life at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.  

Farmers Markets, free summer concerts in Esther Short Park, First Friday Artwalks…what ISN’T going on?
