Featuring performers of all ages, organizers describe the “old-timey show” as a “lively evening of creativity, songs, dance, tall tales, music, laughter and pride of Summit’s colorful, rural, close-knit community.”

Local celebrity artist Earl Newman designed and printed the show’s poster.

“Each act is accompanied by the Summit Community House Band, along with witty introductions by emcee Doug Mainwaring,” Summit’s Barbara Gast said through a press release. “Applause and cheers are guaranteed as generations gather together to support friends and neighbors.”

The $5 admission benefits ongoing programs, events and outreach of the Summit Grange Hall. Organizers remind attendees that no alcohol is allowed and that the grange is handicapped-accessible.

To reach Summit, take Highway 20 west out of Philomath toward Blodgett and take a right on Summit Highway. The community is located about 5 miles up the road.
