Corvallis is a community of volunteers and active citizens, and da Vinci Days is one way that we celebrate our passion for creativity and innovation.

Founded in 1989, the festival continues to excite and engage people of all ages. Inspired by the left brain meets right brain genius of Leonardo, da Vinci Days is a canvas for you to create your own weekend of creativity and exploration.

Da Vinci Days exists to showcase our community of artists, engineers, teachers, and visionaries in a weekend of wonder and fun.
