Welcome!

Welcome to Ontario, Oregon. Located on the banks of the Snake River in the Treasure Valley, the City of Ontario combines the small town feel with the close proximity to the Metropolitan amenities of Boise, Idaho.

Our location along the I-84 corridor and position on the border of Oregon and Idaho makes Ontario a hub of activity for communities on both sides of the border, attacting restaurants, hotels, and businesses to our community. At the heart of Ontario's economy is agriculture, an industry that produces and distributes onions, potatoes, sugar beets, corn and more.

Downtown Ontario is lined with local businesses which include restaurants, antique shops, boutiques and more. Local businesses are involved in community events like the annual Chocolate and Wine Walk in the spring and Frosty Fest during the holiday season.

The history of Ontario is filled with pioneering and diversity. The Oregon Trail passes nearby and whether by that route or others, Ontario has welcomed many travelers. Our heritage is a blend of Native American, Japanese, African, German, Hawaiian, and Hispanic cultures. The struggles and successes of these people are important to us and are captured in our Four Rivers Cultural Center. Their stories are told in the museum, but we continually celebrate our identity with events including the Japanese Obon Festival, Mexican Independence Day, and American's Global Village Festival.

Whether you are evaluating Ontario for your next residence or business or just looking to visit, we welcome you to be a part of our future!

Sincerely,

Riley J. Hill, Mayor
