da Vinci Days Festival Goes Virtual for 2020

The annual da Vinci Days festival will take place online for 2020 and feature a variety of creative arts, science and technology activities in the mid-Willamette Valley. The da Vinci Days organization will announce a schedule later this spring.

The board of directors voted on April 20 to follow coronavirus pandemic guidelines and not hold its annual face-to-face event at the Benton County Fairgrounds in July. Instead, da Vinci Days will work with individuals and community groups to offer a series of virtual events over the next eight months.

“This is an amazing opportunity to be creative and to collaborate with our partners to bring the spirit of da Vinci Days to the community,” said Carole Hobrock, executive director of da Vinci Days.

Programs will be shared through online platforms such as Zoom and FaceBook Live. Proposed events will feature Grand Kinetic Sculpture activities, local artists, musicians, makers, scientists and engineers.

The annual da Vinci Days festival has been a regular feature of summer in Corvallis since 1988. Starting in 2016, the event has been held at the Benton County Fairgrounds. Major sponsors include the City of Corvallis, Benton County, Oregon State University, HP, and Korvis.

For more information, contact Carole Hobrock, Executive Director of da Vinci Days, at 541-231-8960 or by email.
