2020 Memorial Day Weekend

This Memorial Day weekend honor memories of loved ones by staying close to home.

On this holiday for remembrance, visit a museum or explore a historic monument virtually. Make the occasion special by ordering take-out or delivery from a local restaurant. Memorial Day usually heralds the opening of tasting rooms across Willamette Valley wine country — so even if tasting is off the table this year, stocking up on great bottles of wine from your favorite winery may still be possible. Just order online for delivery or call ahead to make pick up arrangements. 

As we approach this Memorial Day we are reminded of President Ronald Reagan's words: "Today is the… More Info

Memorial Day Weekend Things to Do

Pull out the scrapbooks and photo albums

This is a great opportunity to travel down memory lane through photo albums, slide shows and videos. Pop some popcorn and share family stories with the kids. And if your photos are still in shoeboxes, this is the weekend for projects!

Draw your family tree

See what you can map out. Fill in the blanks with a little exploration into genealogy websites. Share with your family.

Send flowers to a loved one's gravesite

Cemeteries are all operating differently this year, but some may place flower orders for you and then send you the photo. Check to see if you can arrange a virtual placement.

Send a care package or card to a friend or family member

Let them know they are loved! Or consider doing something similar for those isolated in nursing homes or hospitals. Check first to see what is permissible.

Camp in your backyard or living room

Pitch a tent, unfurl your sleeping back and enjoy the change of nighttime scenery. The kids will love it!

Spend time in nature

Hike a new trail and a explore a new nook of your neighborhood.

Parks & Trails

As public lands and businesses start to re-open, please be respectful of local communities. Confirm that your destinations are indeed open and stick to places close to your home. If trail heads are congested when you arrive, go to a different trail. Before setting out, check the Adventure Checklist and have plan B and even plan C ready. 

As always, minimize unnecessary contacts by using restroom facilities at home if possible, packing out your trash and wearing a mask when you are in common spaces with others. Support local business by ordering food and arranging to pick up your picnic meal. Lion & Owl is offering a really fun family picnic for four — make sure to order by noon on Saturday and pick it up Sunday morning.

A successful social distancing and courteous Memorial Day Weekend will help all of us enjoy a more fulfilling summer.

Oregonians are eager to go out and enjoy the beautiful outdoor spaces we're lucky enough to call… More Info

Wine Country

It's been a local tradition to visit our wineries over the Memorial Day Weekend but don't expect to drop by or do onsite tasting. However, you can still pick up a bottle of local wine at these destinations, but call ahead to make arrangements. Some wineries or shops may only be open for pick up on specific days and at certain times. Many require advance appointments or reservations to space out visits. Wineries not listed below may still be offering shipping services if you order online.
