After a year’s hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Annual Banks BBQ, Truck & Tractor Pull will return to Banks from August 20 - 22 at Sunset Park.

What would have been the 75th year in 2020 of holding the popular festival was put on hold under restrictions limiting gatherings throughout Oregon to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Like thousands of community festivals, parades, and events throughout the world, the event was canceled. 

This year will be celebrated as the event’s 75th, said Banks Sunset Park Association President Brenda Herinckx in a phone call with the Banks Post.
