Oregon WoodFest had the goal of increasing awareness of Oregon citizens about the Oregon forest sector. The event featured two components: a continuing education course for architects and builders, and a public wood festival. This article reports the results of an assessment of the educational impact of Oregon WoodFest. Educational impact of Architectural Design with Wood was assessed using a post-test questionnaire and of the public festival using participant interviews. Results show that the CE course influenced participants' intentions regarding their use of wood and that the public festival increased participants awareness of wood and the forest sector.
