Events throughout the year

CSCA-Gondar’s events, whether they occur yearly, quarterly, and/or monthly, are designed to address one of our main missions “to promote cultural awareness, respect, and understanding” between our communities of Gondar and Corvallis.





Annual Events:

  • A Taste of Ethiopia: Food, Culture and People is a community event designed to increase awareness of the unique culture, an authentic dinner, and its customs in our sister city, Gondar, Ethiopia. Held on the last Sunday of January, every other year. For more information, click here.


  • Walk for Water is held during the month of May, Corvallis’ Sister Cities Month.  This 3-mile walk is designed to increase the awareness of the need for clean water, sanitation, and water management in not only our sister city of Gondar, Ethiopia but the world at large.   For more information, click here.
