Fort George Block Party

Since 1894, Astoria Regatta has celebrated the entire Lower Columbia area and the river on which it was built. It is the longest running celebration in Oregon’s oldest city, and right at the center is Fort George Brewery. Lay in your course for 14th & Duane in the heart of Astoria for a bountiful weekend of provisions and entertainment.

Day 1 – Friday, August 11th

Get the gang back together and plot your plan of attack for an outdoor showing of Fantastic Mr. Fox at dark (approximately 9:15pm in the Fort George courtyard). This Wes Anderson classic is great entertainment for all ages.

Mr. Fox (voiced by George Clooney) breaks a promise to his wife (Meryl Streep) and raids the farms of their human neighbors, Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Giving in to his animal instincts endangers not only his marriage but also the lives of his family and their animal friends. When the farmers force Mr. Fox and company deep underground, he has to resort to his natural craftiness to rise above the opposition.

Bring your own chairs and blankets if you like or seating is available. Food & beverages can be purchased through the pub or Lovell Taproom, all ages are welcome, no tickets required, never a cover.
