Official Plans for viewing the eclipse from Culver

Culver will be hosting the annual Culver Crawdad festival on August 19th which includes vendors, entertainment and of course a crawdad dinner will be available on a first come basis.  This is an annual event and we would like to invite our guests to join in the activities. 

This event is on Saturday only but the vendors will be given an opportunity to remain in the park through Monday.  There are a few restaurants and convenience stores in Culver along with a gas station.  Metolius, another small city also has a restaurant, convenience store and gas station.  The other nearest cities that can provide all services are Madras (which is about 10 miles north) and Redmond, about 15 miles south of Culver.

The day will start with a 25 mile bicycle poker ride enjoying the scenic Cascade views, a parade at 10:00 and the remainder of the day enjoying the activities in the park.  Evening activities are available at the local businesses.

The City of Culver has two separate dry camping areas for visitors. We will have 260 spaces that measure 20’ x 60’, most of which are “back in”.  There is an RV dump station nearby and restrooms in the adjacent park but no other amenities. 

For more information, please contact Donna at Culver City Hall at or by telephone at (541) 546-6494.
