The Wooden Boat Festival takes place in the spring at Eagle Rock Lodge on the banks of the McKenzie River. The festival also includes the Wooden Drift Boat Parade on the wild & scenic river. 

In the summer take in the scents of the Lavender Festival at the McKenzie River Lavender farm. The region is also host to the McKenzie River Chainsaw Art Festival where wood carvers create intricate masterpieces using chainsaws.
