July/August 2014

It's finally here!

We can taste the handcrafted microbrews, feel the warm sunshine on the Columbia Riverfront, and enjoy the sultry sounds of jazz in Esther Short Park. The summer brings no shortage of original experiences to discover in Vancouver USA and, of course, the best part of exploring is sharing your discoveries!

Whether you're hiking through one of our 190+ area parks or joining event favorites like 3 Days of Aloha, Independence Day at Fort Vancouver, or the Clark County Fair, we encourage you to share your photos and experiences with the tag #DiscoverVanUSA.

To kick things off, we're running a photo challenge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Here's how it works:

  • Step 1 - Get Creative! Make your own "USA" sign
  • Step 2 - Find something that says "Vancouver," snap a photo
  • Step 3 - Upload your picture publicly to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the tag #DiscoverVanUSA. Then, watch as we share your photos and even feature our favorites in next year's travel magazine.

If you need some tips on where to start your discovering, below you'll find a selection of original events and Vancouver USA attractions. For more area happenings, check out our full events calendar and, while you're there, explore our award-winning website.
