The City of Irrigon is located in northeast Oregon, on the beautiful Columbia River. Shown above are “everyday” views from our community. Tugboats, sailboats, speed boats and paddle wheelers are enjoyed almost daily by the residents of our community.
Irrigon is an “undiscovered gem” that is great for retirement, raising a family or starting a business. The city is “up and coming” with major downtown development underway, a great small town atmosphere, great schools and many active civic and volunteer organizations.
Irrigon has a local medical office and is just 20 minutes away from a large, modern hospital facility. Shopping is available locally and in the nearby communities of Boardman, Umatilla and Hermiston. The Tri-Cities area of Washington (Kennewick/Richland/Pasco) and Pendleton, OR are about 45 minutes away.
Irrigon is a family oriented city of 1910 people, known for its recreation activities along the river, agricultural heritage, great schools, historic legacy and outstanding community spirit.
The Irrigon Watermelon Festival is held on the last Saturday of July and is a fun, family oriented day with kids games, good food (including homemade pie and, of course, watermelon). There is musical entertainment and raffles for prizes all day. A weekend long adult co-ed softball tournament caps off the activities.
The Multicultural Arts Center (IMAC) provides local artists and musicians with an outlet for their talents. The IMAC building is a historic structure erected in 1929 to house the local school children. Plans are being prepared to renovate the old building into a functioning community gathering and arts building.
