Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and The Cascade Mountains, on the north bank of the Columbia River and just minutes from Portland, Oregon, Vancouver, Washington offers a colorful history, year-round outdoor activities, charming shops and restaurants, and premier events.
Currently under construction, Vancouver's Waterfront project opened its first buildings in 2018. Upon its completion, this half mile of riverfront will include restaurants, a boutique hotel, state-of-the-art green spaces including walking and biking trails, public parks and natural habitat. With the addition of offices, retail and cultural spaces and residences, this 20-block, 32-acre development will become a centerpiece for Vancouver.
The Clark County Event Center is perfectly sited on 106 acres in the heart of Southwest Washington on the Clark County Fairgrounds in Ridgefield, Washington. Featuring a modern Exhibition Hall that offers 100,000 square feet of space with six space configurations for events of all sizes, additional commercial buildings and an enclosed equestrian arena, event planners have the flexibility to choose a venue that meets their needs. The Clark County Event Center is also home to the annual ten-day Clark County Fair which draws over 350,000 attendees each year, and the annual Washington State Horse Expo, which draws equestrian enthusiasts from Washington, Oregon, California and Idaho.
Less than five minutes south of the Fairgrounds in Salmon Creek, visitors will find various hotels, restaurants, businesses, retail stores, an urgent care facility, hospital and veterinary clinic. Travel another 15 miles south and you will cross the border into bustling Portland, Oregon.
The close proximity of the Portland International Airport
offers convenient airline travel options for out-of-state visitors.
