Cambria Heritage Day
Take a trip back to Cambria’s bygone era. Cambria Heritage Day is just around the corner. On Saturday, June 20th from 11am to 4pm, the Cambria Historical Society will host this annual event. Stop by the Cambria Historical Museum for some old-fashioned fun with live music, food and drink, crafts, kid’s activities and more. Many of Cambria’s local craftsmen will be on hand. Stroll the grounds and watch wood carving and basket weaving demonstrations – kids can even weave their own dream catchers. Sample fresh butter churned right before your eyes. Checkout vintage cars from the past and take a pic with Cambria’s historical 1937 Dodge fire truck. Plus they’ll be horse rides through the back village for “kids” of all ages. Join the Cambria Historical Society at this family-friendly event celebrating our town’s rich heritage. For event details, click here.

July 4th Picnic in the Park
The fireworks might be cancelled but we’re still celebrating our nation’s independence! Cambria’s traditional 4th of July Picnic in the Park will be in full swing at Shamel Park. The day’s festivities will go on as planned! Opening ceremonies start at 11am. The fun-filled day will include waiter/waitress races, a pie eating contest, delicious food, live music and dancing, games and activities for the whole family. Instead of fireworks (which were cancelled due to the drought), the evening will culminate in a “Cambria Pops” concert starting at 7pm. The concert will feature the big band sounds of the Royal Gardens Swing Orchestra playing some of your favorite patriotic tunes. Click here for event details.
