We are busy getting ready for our 40th Annual Silver Falls Christmas Festival! This year’s event will take place on Saturday, December 9th from 11am-4pm in the South Falls Day-Use Area with additional activities at the Silver Falls Conference Center. We will be posting more detailed event information here within the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
Join us Saturday, August 27th, for our 12th annual Silver Falls Star Party! The event will be held from 9 pm to midnight and will feature telescopes hosted by astronomers from Salem’s Night Sky 45 Astronomy Club. Bring a blanket and warm clothes for an evening of stargazing!
The event is free, but visitors must purchase a $5 day-use parking permit.

Our park wouldn’t be the special place we all love without their help – “Friends” indeed!
This year’s Christmas Festival at Silver Falls was another big hit! Well over 5,000 visitors braved the weather and enjoyed the weekend festivities.
