From tasting unique food and drink to seeing locally crafted art, there's something at Estacada Uncorked to cater to every sense.

Participants will include Cathedral Ridge Winery, Stone Circle Cider, Hillockburn Farm, Townshend's Distillery, Alder Tree Winery, Forest Edge Vineyard, Vitis Ridge, Silverton Cellars, Wooden Shoe Winery, Clackamas River Growlers, Chow This, Trail's End Kettle Korn, House of Spain, Canataly Farms, Fire & Knives Barbecue, Beeingkind, Townshend's Distillery, Doug Burbeck Jewelry, Peter Bush Marimba, Brad Vincent, Sue Dumolt, Meghan Lunski and Allie Callow.
Along with vendors at Harvest Market Square, additional shops will set up sidewalk booths along Broadway Street.
"We really take to heart promoting local businesses," said Nancy Hoffman of the Downtown Estacada Commission, one of the organizers of the event.
Hoffman appreciates seeing Estacada Uncorked attendees visit with one another.
"People were standing in clusters, and children were off playing games. The parents were in these groups of conversation, and it looked like perfect sociability," she said, discussing one of her favorite memories from the event.
In 2016, Estacada Uncorked was honored with an Oregon Main Street Excellence in Downtown Revitalization Award in the "Best Special Event" category. The ceremony recognized outstanding downtown events, festivals or promotional series.
