      FORT UMPQUA DAYS Sept 3 & 4, 2011

      Fort Umpqua Days is small-town friendliness & community effort. The celebration features Fort Umpqua, with the continued progress on the buildings within the stockade, & historic-themed activities for visitors.

      A 2-day bass tournament adds to the excitement. Several sponsors help fund the tournament prizes for biggest fish caught by one of the 3-person team in a boat. Elkton, situated on the main Umpqua River, is known as the “bass capital.”

      The “Echoes of the Umpqua” pageant is a popular drama with 100 community members who write, compose music, perform, & direct this popular production. This year's theme is "Journey to the Umpqua."

      A Saturday night dance & BBQ attract a crowd. A roving singing cowboy & local musical talent keep the ambiance rhythmic. The famous pie auction brings in a good sum for community projects. In 2008, the men of the community decided to try their hand at pie baking to add to the fun & flavor. Food booths, vendors and local crafters offer wares for sale.
