Lake Oswego’s Centennial Celebration

WCEP partnered with Cindy Thompson Event Productions to create two summer events that helped the community “honor the past, celebrate the present and imagine the future.”

In addition to a large Centennial Festival event in July at Luscher Farm, the celebration continued in August with Grow and Gather: A Dinner Celebrating Sustainability. Chefs from Lake Oswego restaurants came together and prepared a 5-course farm feast to support the Lake Oswego School District’s new Sustainability Fund. Guests gathered under a large pole tent and were served family style at long banquet tables accessorized with dalias in bell jars provided by the Lake Oswego Garden Club.
