Pioneer Picnic

Linn County Pioneer Picnic is Oregon’s oldest continuing celebration. The first Picnic consisted of a reunion of Oregon Trail pioneers in 1887. With the passing of time and the passing of the original pioneers, the Picnic has transformed to include other entertainment and activities.

Today’s picnic focuses on family fun with games. Don’t miss the Linn County Pioneer Picnic Parade and a full schedule of family activities.
