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.
Egg Days occurs annually on the third weekend in June.
A comprehensive event guide, updates on the festival itself and more are available at the Winlock Egg Days Facebook page as the event draws near. Give them a like and make plans to attend the 2018 Egg Days.
