Hermiston is a small town in an agricultural area in Northeastern Oregon. We are well known for our
Hermiston Watermelons, but we also raise and process such things as onions, potatoes, carrots and
cantaloupe, to name a few. The mighty Columbia River runs by just six miles from town. You will find a
small town atmosphere with a progressive feel. Our downtown Festival Street is home to a number of
special activities throughout the year. You will find family restaurants and eateries ranging from Mexican
to Bistro foods. The Wildhorse Casino is not far on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Take in the offerings
at the SAGE (Sustainable AGriculture and Energy) Center in Boardman. Enjoy the Columbia at Umatilla,
Irrigon or Boardman Marina Parks. Go for a stroll on the Oxbow Trail that leads to the town’s Riverfront
Park. We look forward to seeing you, so save the date!
