Time for Sherwood Great Onion Festival


Celebrating Sherwood’s legacy as the West Coast’s largest shipper of onions, the 24th Annual “Great Onion Festival” is October 16th, from 9 am to 4 p.m. at Archer Glen Elementary School.


“Onion Festival is our premier social event,” noted Tracey Hebrock, owner of Innovations in Management, the Sherwood-based national-wide facility maintenance company and event title sponsor. “Sherwood families spend much of the day seeing old friends, making new ones and having great fun and a great meal, and there are plenty of area businesses to check out as well,” he said.


While onions drive the event, the famous Sherwood Firemen’s Chicken, side dishes and deserts round out the day’s banquet.


Live entertainment, arts, crafts and vendor sales, raffle drawings, onion rolling and the onion eating contests, and kids’ face and pumpkin painting make for plenty to see and do.  A farmer’s market in the Archer Glen entry sets the stage for the gustatory experience inside. 


 “This year’s Best Dang Onion Dish contest calls for appetizer or hors d’oeuvre entries only,” according to Bernie Danylchuk, aka “Chef Bernie,” Best Dang contest coordinator.


 “A theme for onions in a specific type of dish will be more competitive and more creative,” he explained.  The top-rated onion-using appetizer/hors d’oeuvre will win a special prize. Bernie has offered recipes and other advice to contestants at


The Sherwood Chamber of Commerce is hosting the event and offers a variety of sponsorships for area businesses and organizations. For more information on business opportunities, or to volunteer, call Nancy Bruton, Sherwood Chamber Executive Director at 503-625-7800. 


In the early 20th century, Italian farmers settling in the Sherwood area, prospered with bumper onion crops from the high water level in Sherwood fields.  In a time when transporting foods was regionally limited, Sherwood gained dominance as the prime onion supplier on the Pacific Coast.  Cipolla, as in Cipole Road, is Italian for “onion.”
