Castle Rock Fair in mid-July is a small fair centered around an iconic red barn. The fair opens with a parade and features quarter arcade games, archery, balloon men, and more. Focused around 4-H qualification for the state fair, this is a fun place to watch animal showmanship. It’s near Longview, so Portland is just 60 miles further south across the Columbia River. Getting there is an easy drive south on I-5 for about 100 miles. There’s plenty of overnight options, including camping nearby or make it an inexpensive day trip. More info: Home | Castle Rock Fair
