Columbia Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce that it will host the Regatta Square block party after a three-year hiatus.

Regatta Square will be returning for the first time since 2019, the last year a full Regatta festival was held.

“We look forward to celebrating the Regatta with our community once again,” says CMH CEO Erik Thorsen. “The Regatta is a treasured piece of Astoria’s history, and CMH is proud to be part of its festivities.”

The block party will be held on 12th Street, between Duane and Exchange Streets, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13. People can enjoy the event before and after the Grand Land Parade finishes in downtown Astoria. There will be food, a DJ, kids’ zone and health fair.

In the kids’ zone, children and parents can have fun together with the help of inflatable bounce houses and toys, a face painter, Purple Cow Toys and more.

At the health fair, local medical experts and organizations will be present with resources and information to help keep you and your family healthy. CMH providers and departments will be present, along with other participating organizations, including the Astoria Fire Department, Astoria Parks & Recreation, the Assistance League, Clatsop CASA, Clatsop Community Action, Clatsop Community College, Clatsop County Health Department, Medix, The Harbor and WomenHeart.
