The Astoria Regatta started in 1894. This time-honored family tradition is the oldest celebration in Oregon’s oldest city, and one of the oldest festivals west of the Rockies.
What began as a casual remark between two Astorians soon became a way for the community to celebrate the return of Astoria fishermen from Alaska aboard boats filled with salted fish. This community celebration quickly blossomed into the one of the premier boat races on the West Coast.
In 1894, Astoria was a cultural hodgepodge comprised of Native Americans, Scandinavians, Chinese and the usual polyglot of American/Europeans. Early pictures of Regatta show elaborate festivities in a thriving downtown built over the river on wooden piers. Like today, the early Regattas included a boat parade and a land parade.

That’s why I picked Regatta Ricotta as the August 2022 colorway. This awesome yarn is speckled with several blues, teals and a mustard yellow. It would be perfect for any fingering, dk or worsted weight project.
Each skein of Regatta Ricotta is unique.
