Poison Oak Show

California's Wackiest Festivals



Poison Oak Show in Columbia, CA will have you scratching your head as to what it's all about. We all know Poison Oak's reputation to make people itch, so when you enter the contests, you better wear gloves on some of the events.


For instance, the poison oak show, over 25 years strong, features best arrangement of poison oak, biggest single leaf, and best photo of poison oak rash. The presentation sponsored by St. Charles Saloon is amazing in its theme. It is but one of California's wacky themed events that will not be outdone!


Join the fun.
