Our Club’s Programs
We are proud to operate the following programs in our community:
Homer Davenport Community Festival
Since 2010, and at the request of our community, our club has organized and operated Silverton’s annual community festival celebrating (among other things), one of our “favorite sons” Homer Davenport, who was a nationally famous political cartoonist, friend to Teddy Roosevelt, and importer of the original Davenport Arabian Horses. The three day festival begins on the first Friday of August (following a Kick Off Party the night before) and features a community parade on Saturday, the famous Davenport Races on Sunday, and a vibrant Coolidge-McClaine Park full of vendors, food, and music all weekend long.

Silverton Strawberry Festival
At the same time that our club assumed operation of the Homer Davenport Festival, we inherited the Silverton Strawberry Festival (formerly the Silverton Hills Strawberry Festival). Held every year on Father’s Day, the festival is a community favorite and features local berries, entertainment, and vendors from 11am-5pm. Visit the festival webpage by clicking here.
Daddy Daughter Dance
Perhaps one of our most successful events is the annual Daddy Daughter Dance held at Silverton High School. In 2016, we had 250 attendees, which doubled in 2017 to 500 attendees. In 2018, we had over 800 attendees. Some dads make this a formal affair for their daughters while others consider it a casual evening out together – either way, there’s tons of fun for those who attend!

Hops and Vine Evening
Held at the popular Goschie Farms Event Center (The Hog House), this has been a popular evening to enjoy a unique venue set amid acres of hops, sample local beers and wines, and socialize with other Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike. Too often our programs require our club members to have their sleeves rolled up and working, and while there is some of that here, it’s also a very good opportunity to spend some quality time with each other and guests! Typically held in the fall, this event will move to the spring in 2019. Stay tuned for details.
