Great Onion Festival Is History and Total Family Fun

In the early 20th century, Italian farmers settled in the Sherwood area and 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 for cities all along the Pacific Coast. 

On stage this year, the highly popular “Reptile Man” will thrill festival goers with his herd of snakes and lizards.  New and better-than-ever talented individuals and community and school groups will also provide stage entertainment.

The Great Onion Festival menu includes a barbecue chicken dinner accompanied by a baked onion, baked beans and Cole slaw served up by the Sherwood Old Town Rotary Club and volunteers.

Onion aficionados are invited to prepare their best onion-inclusive recipe in “Best Dang Onion Dish in Sherwood.” A panel of local notables will judge the prepared onion dishes.

For young ones there’s the onion rolling contest and pumpkin painting.  The onion-eating contest is open to all brave souls. The Stinkiest Breath contest is also a favorite!  Raffle prizes add a bit of chance to the day.  Over 30 product, service and craft vendors will also be hosted at Onion Festival.

The festival is presented by Pacific Family Dental, Bittner Dentistry for Kids, and Wilson Orthodontics.  The event is a fundraiser for the nonprofit Sherwood Chamber of Commerce.
