This is a huge meet, so we suggest very early registration with WVMC for the meet and also book your hotel room early. RSVPing on our PSMC web site is just for the convenience of our members so everyone knows who is attending; be sure to click the box so your name is visible.

This is an annual event hosted by our friends at the Willamette Valley Miata Club and it's always well-organized with a lot of fun events to enjoy.

Silverton is the gateway to Silver Falls State Park, the largest state park in Oregon. Located 14 miles southeast of Silverton on Highway 214, the park offers 10 different waterfalls, miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails as well as picnicking and facilities. The Day Use Lodge built in the 1930s is open year round and hosts an old-fashioned Christmas in December, a wildflower exhibit in April or May, and an interpretative tribute to pre-park times at Historic Al Faussett Days in June.

The Silver Falls Tour Route leads visitors from Interstate 5 at Woodburn or Turner, through Silverton and Mt. Angel in a 55-mile loop highlighted by the drive through the park.

The Gallon House Bridge is the last original covered bridge remaining in Marion County. The bridge spans Abiqua Creek about 1 1/2 miles northeast of Silverton. It got its name during Prohibition because it was a drop point for bootleg whiskey between Mount Angel (a "wet" town) on the north, and Silverton (a "dry" town on the south.) Built in 1917, the bridge was completely refurbished in 1991.

The Oregon Garden continues to grow on the Cascade Highway at the south edge of Silverton. It is becoming a 240-acre world-class garden to rival the top gardens in the country. It is now open to the public.

Beautiful murals adorn the sides of buildings throughout Silverton, featuring the brushwork of prominent local artists. Designs depict Homer Davenport (Silverton Oregon's famous son, Homer Davenport, became an internationally renowned cartoonist in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.), scenes of historic Silverton, the Four Freedoms paintings by Norman Rockwell, a pioneer wagon train, the Silverton Red Sox baseball team and other subjects. A festival is held in Honor of Home Davenport each summer in August.

Two city parks, on either side of Silver Creek, invite you to stop, play and picnic. A footbridge connects Coolidge-McClaine Park on the west with Old Mill Park and the city swimming pool on the east bank. 

The Silverton County Museum offers memorabilia from days gone by in and around Silverton from its early beginnings in 1854. Staffed by volunteers, the museum is open Thursdays and Sundays from 1 - 4.

A Southern Pacific Depot, built in 1906, stands next to the museum and houses the Silverton Area Chamber of Commerce and additional historic exhibits. Be sure to pick up a copy of the Silverton walking tour brochure to guide through the sites of historic Silverton.
