We are 12 miles directly west of Eugene on Highway 126.
Here is a map of the Fair layout for when you arrive.
Get on the Bus
It is our great pleasure to announce that you can get to the Fair site for free and anyone (including you) can also ride LTD, anytime and anywhere for FREE. The OCF is purchasing the fare for the entire LTD system on July 10, 11 and 12. You don’t need a ticket and you don’t have to be going to the Fair (although we don’t know why you wouldn’t) in order to get a free fare on the Fair. It is our honor to be able to give to our community, which has helped support our event for over forty years, in a tangible way.
You can catch the bus to the Fair starting at 10 am at the LTD Downtown Station at 10th and Willmaette or Valley River Center southwest parking lot next to the bike bridge. The buses leave about every 15 minutes. You can ride to and back home from those locations for free from anywhere in the LTD system. You will need a ticket to the Fair to access the Fair site and the event. Remember, the LAST BUS LEAVES THE FAIR SITE AT 7:30! Give yourself plenty of time to make all your bus connections. LTD schedules are available at the Downtown Station, at the LTD website or by calling (541) 687-5555.
So, get a free fare on the Fair and please make 2015 the year you get back on the bus…on us!
We provide wheelchair accessible buses.
For those who want to bike or drive to the free shuttle, go to the Valley River Center (northwest parking lot) shuttle site. You can park in the Valley River Center lot; there will be plenty of bike racks at this site. BIKES ARE NOT ALLOWED ON SHUTTLE BUSES.
There is a shuttle leaving Friday and Saturday from Veneta Elementary School to the Fair: 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm. The bus goes from the Fair to Veneta Elementary School, 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm, 7:30pm.
Take the Train
When you ride Amtrak, there’s no traffic to fight, no maps to decipher and no gas tank to feed. So you can concentrate on something else, like your friends and the Fair. Or the breathtaking scenery. Or nothing at all. And you’ll arrive in a relaxed state of mind, wherever you’re going. The station for the free shuttle bus to the Fair is just a few blocks away from the Eugene Amtrak station. Ask the Amtrak employees in Eugene to direct you. Check out the Amtrak Cascades and Coast Starlight here.
Please carpool! Fill every seatbelt, bringing less stuff and more friends. Parking is limited and it isn’t free. You can buy a parking pass when you buy your ticket or you can pay for parking when you get to the Fair. There is an $8 parking fee, per vehicle (including motorcycles), per day if parking pass is purchased in advance. The cost is $10 if you buy your pass at the Fair site during the event. Our friendly Traffic Crew folks will direct you once you get here.
If you have a DMV handicapped sticker, please make sure it is prominently displayed in your windshield so you can be directed to Alter-Abled parking. Here’s some more information for folks who are alter-abled.
Ride Share; Save the planet + your wallet by carpooling to Oregon Country Fair!
The Green Tortoise will once again offer transportation from San Francisco to the Oregon Country Fair. We offer pick ups and drop offs along our old commuter route, via I-5. The bus will be on display at the entrance to the Fair so it will not be available for camping. All passengers riding the Green Tortoise to the Fair must have an entrance ticket. You will need to make your own arrangements for camping, food, and for tickets to the Fair. The bus will depart from San Francisco on Thursday night and arrive at the Fair on Friday morning. We will depart the Fair on Sunday evening and arrive in SF on Monday morning. For more information on the Green Tortoise bus to the Oregon Country Fair, call us at (415) 956-7500 or 1-800- 867-8647, or click Green Tortoise.
