Connect with online activities created by the Estacada community
While community members are encouraged to stay home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many groups in Estacada have created online resources to keep their fellow residents engaged during this time. From online concerts and dance classes to a virtual tour of a fire engine, there is no shortage of locally-based activities.

Wade Creek Vintage Marketplace and Paint with April are hosting a virtual paint party, during which participants will create a bee wall hanger. The event is scheduled for 6:30-8:30 p.m. Friday, April 24.
Estacada-based musician Jessie Leigh is streaming several times a week on her Facebook page. From 7-7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, she hosts a storytime and song event for children. She is also going live on Faceboook for additional concerts at various times on Friday evenings.
