The Chehalem Cultural Center is excited to announce its 5th Annual Newberg Camellia Festival on Saturday April 13, 2013. This isn’t your average celebration of a city flower! The Newberg Camellia Festival is a jam-packed day full of blooms, culture, traditional art, and so much more. Thanks to our sponsors, the Newberg Camellia Festival is free to the public. In 2013 we are anticipating 3,000+ visitors thanks to our collaborative efforts with business partners, civic entities, and other non-profits.
