WILD Turkey Daze (April)
The Chamber of Commerce co-sponsors a banquet with the National Wild Turkey Federation to raise money for turkey habitat and to recognize Stevens County as the number one turkey-hunting county in Washington State.

Colville Panorama Pro-West Rodeo (Father’s Day Weekend)
A rodeo has been held on this national holiday for more than 60 years.
