The Teddy Bear Parade one of Oregon City's signature events. It’s a one-hour processional over a 1.10 Mile route. The Teddy Bear Parade has been a community highlight for Oregon City and Clackamas County for the past 20 years. The Teddy Bear Parade  gathers NEW teddy bears and stuffed animals that are given to law enforcement agencies, fire departments, emergency rooms, children’s hospitals and women’s shelters in Clackamas County. These stuffed animals are then distributed to children throughout our community who need comfort in times of crisis. The parade is also a time for us to honor our  emergency personnel who protect the entire community.
