Two of Sisters’ favorite events are on tap this week.

Sisters Park & Recreation District (SPRD) will bring the Hawaiian Islands back to Sisters on Thursday, August 8, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Village Green city park.

“This is the fifth year for our luau,” said Shannon Rackowski, event coordinator for SPRD.

SPRD will bring back the Aloha Spirit — the mutual affection and regard for all with no obligation in return — with music from headliner Kurt Silva, Halau Uhane Dancers, Sisters Ukulele Players, DJ Chuck Boogie, Halua O Hula Hawaii with Shannon Mokuahi Rackowski and the opening number to be performed by Kane O Hula, Men of Hawaiian Dance Sisters-Camp Sherman Rural Fire Protection District Firefighters.

Rackowski will be preparing the kaukau, (the food), but this year includes a little twist in the menu adding teriyaki chicken, along with kalua pig (family recipes) sticky rice and more.

Tickets are still available at SPRD; call 541-549-2091, or purchase online at (go to the event section, click on luau then click the blue link).

For 24 years the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration on Brooks Camp Road in Sisters has supported the Sisters community through its annual Country Fair and Art Show.

Through the years the church has contributed over $250,000 to local support agencies such as Family Action Network, Kiwanis Food Bank, Neighbor Impact, Sisters Habitat for Humanity, Healthy Beginnings, Bethlehem Inn, Circle of Friends, and Saving Grace.

The distributed funds come from a community Art Show and Country Fair which will be held August 9-10. Beginning Friday night is the “invitation” Art Show/Sale and Silent Auction from 5 to 8 p.m. with diverse art and the opportunity to enjoy refreshments and mingle with the artists.

The Art Show and Country Fair continue on Saturday, August 10, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the Art Show/Sale, the Marketplace, and more silent auctions. The Country Store offers homemade preserves, fresh produce, candy, pies, cakes, home-baked breads and cookies, potted plants, and handmade craft


The Good Book store offers a great selection of gently read books. The Sweet Tooth booth dishes up famous homemade Marionberry cobbler with ice cream. Face painting, a bouncy castle, children’s games, cake walks, fire truck tours and animals can be followed by hamburgers and hot dogs, coleslaw and chips at the Café Transfig.

All proceeds go back to the Sisters community.
