Waldo is back!
Find Waldo In Corvallis Begins July 1!

Get Your Passport Now!

The Seach Begins:
July 1 - July 31
Prize Drawing August 1, 2017
4pm at Grass Roots


Where’s Waldo? In Corvallis of course! The iconic children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 25 local businesses throughout our community this July.

Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in our community, including Sibling Revelry, Many Hands Trading, Peak Sports, Tried & True Coffee, The Toy Factory, Gearbox Unlimited, and many more!


Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo in Corvallis!” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. Passports are available at any participating business.

Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing on August 1, with the top prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.


This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Where’s Waldo? books. To celebrate such a special milestone, Waldo’s friend Wenda will also be hiding in Grass Roots Books & Music here in Corvallis! Participants in Find Waldo Local will have double the fun searching for both Waldo and Wenda all month long!
