Queen Coronation and Talent Show, May 5, 7:00 p.m.

Join us in celebrating the 64th Anniversary of the Oakridge Tree Planting Festival with a fun night of great entertainment at the Festival Queen Coronation and Talent Show! The doors at the Oakridge High School Auditorium will open at 6:30 pm on Friday, May 5th, and the show will begin at 7:00.

Each year young women from the Oakridge area volunteer to be selected as Tree Planting Festival Queen and Princesses.

They learn about the heritage of the Festival and prepare a presentation that they make to the Tree Planting Festival Committee, which selects the Queen and Princesses from the participants.

The presentations focus their interpretation of the significance of the Festival, its heritage and relation to community service. The Queen and Princesses participate in the Grand Parade, help out with the various events and tree planting.

The selected Queen and Princesses are presented at the annual Coronation event.
