MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR FUN EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES ALL YEAR LONG IN BEAUTIFUL KALAMA!
Mother's Day weekend the AMALAK ladies group puts on its annual Plant and Book Sale. This is a very well-attended event and the prices are extremely reasonable. Make plans to arrive early for the best selections. Kalama Chamber holds their annual Spring Clean Up Day the first Saturday in May, a great volunteer opportunity to help spruce up Kalama!
Not to be outdone, the Lions Club puts on a wonderful Father's Day
breakfast at the Community Building. Speaking of the Lions Club, they also have monthly Bingo games at the Community Building on the Second Sunday of each month.
Every July the town enjoys the Kalama Fair and Downtown Parade. Fair Princesses, Queen Coronation, and 4H activities all take place. In August, downtown Kalama is filled with with antique cars for the Untouchables Car Show and the All City Garage Sales the weekend of the third Sunday in August.
Halloween in Kalama is always a great safe event for those young trick-or-treaters. 1st Street is closed down for a couple hours so the ghostly creatures, super heroes, and princesses can safely go from one business to another to receive their trick or treat!
Christmas arrives in Kalama around the first weekend in December. The Fair Board hosts a Bazaar and Pie Sale. The Kalama Chamber sponsors a free holiday event at the library as well as The Festival of Lighted Floats Downtown Parade. (We no longer hold the Festival of Lighted Boats in the river due to challenges with finding boat participants and volunteers for the festival). Of course there's the Holiday Light Display in Toteff Park all month long as well.
