Did you know that Winlock was one of the top producers of eggs in the world in its earlier years? There's a yearly festival that pays homage to that heritage each June: Winlock Egg Days!
For two days, Winlock comes alive in celebration. A parade functions as the centerpiece of the celebration that also includes tours of the Winlock Historical Museum, classic car and tuner shows, and the time-honored tradition of feeding attendees with egg salad sandwiches.
The Egg Day Queen coronation takes place on the first evening of the festival, with the Queen serving as the living logo of the celebration for the next calendar year.
This year's celebration of Egg Days takes place June 16-17. The big parade is 11 a.m. June 17 in downtown Winlock, and the festival really cranks up right when the parade ends!
A comprehensive event guide, updates on the festival itself and more are available at the Winlock Egg Days Facebook page. Give them a like and make plans to attend this year's Egg Days.
