About Our Auction

The first two years of the Stevenson Streatery were a huge success and we heard loud and clear from the community to bring it back!

Once again, the Stevenson Downtown Association worked with community members to create this year's Streatery. The Streatery is a public gathering space for locals and visitors alike. Folks can bring take out meals from local restaurants to enjoy in a picnic area in the heart of downtown. People can have business meetings over coffee in the morning sunshine. Workers can open their laptops in the shade. Local kids can meet up with their friends over an ice cream cone. It's a place to meet, a place to gather.

The focal point of the Streatery is the collective public art presented on each of the picnic tables created by local artists who generously gave their time to this project. Along with 12 artist volunteers donating their skills to the colorful designs within a "Gorge critters" theme, there were also the students in Stevenson High School wood shop class (Ruff - Cutts) that built the tables. Additional community volunteers sanded and primed the tables, planted flowers, and installed the fencing and lights. The Stevenson Streatery is a true community project!

In the auction this year are 16 picnic tables (eight four-tops and eight two-tops). Local artists painted 13 of the tables. Our Board and staff painted the checkerboard table. There is one "blank slate four-top" and one "your logo gets painted here two-top", plus six flower planters. All 22 items are available to bid on beginning at noon, October 1 through noon, October 13.
