We are the largest Winter Festival in the State of Oregon

Since 1984, the Klamath Snowflake Festival starts the holiday season with more than two weeks of events. All are presented by non-profit and for-profit groups. These events unite our community with entertainment, activities and shopping opportunities—Snowflake Parade, Christmas Tree Jubilee, Bowling with Santa, and much more. There’s something for everyone during this family-friendly, fun-filled time!

We are a 35-Year Community Tradition

Many Born-and-Bread-Basinites can share fond childhood memories of bundling up from head-to-toe and venturing out into the crisp night air to partake in the Snowflake festivities: sipping steamy cocoa that mom poured from a thermos while eagerly waiting for the parade to start, or packing into a car with family and friends and driving through the park to see the winter lights, and touring some of the more ambitious neighborhood lighting displays.

We are proud to celebrate this year’s  theme: “Christmas around the world”. It is a theme that captures the universal appeal of the Christmas season; the holiday that unites the world under the banner of peace on earth and goodwill toward men. The magic of the season appeals to all, and here in Klamath there is a special place in our hearts for the beauty of the lights and decorations, the excitement of receiving gifts, and the warmth of heart that comes with the gathering of friends and family. We endeavor to dive into these cherished aspects of the holidays without reservation. We want to celebrate this most wonderful time of the year with the excitement of a child, and a love shared around the world.
