The Dalles 2022

With generous sponsorship from The Dalles Art Center, The Peoples’ Forge will bring it’s unique mission to this year’s 41st Northwest Cherry Festival!

We invite and encourage Everyone to join us at the intersection of 2nd St and Washington – at the future site of a downtown Pocket Park. There, we will forge component pieces as a community to complete Crossroads – a public sculpture to be installed at the future park.

Crossroads was designed by Hood River sculptor, MacRae Wylde. Its skeletal structure was fabricated by The Peoples’ Forge and the completed sculpture – including components forged by participants at the festival – will be assembled by The Peoples’ Forge crew throughout the event. Together, we’ll bring community-based public art to life, forging a physical legacy for The Dalles with the hands of its own community.

All are Welcome to Join Us at the Forge!
