Hi Performers and Artists:
Thank you for your interest in performing at The Oregon Country Fair! We have several different venues and stages at the Fair to highlight and accommodate a wide variety of acts and ensemble sizes. Please navigate to each stage to get more information. Deadline February 15, 2024.
AMBIANCE ON THE PATH – Ambiance Entertainment is looking for unique, colorful, interactive performers to wander the paths and create brief experiences of magic and wonder for fair goers. Stiltwalkers, dancers, clowns, acrobats, living art installations, improvisational actors, acoustic musicians, jugglers, magicians, and all manner of performance artists are encouraged to apply.
CHELA MELA MEADOW – For the Monkey Palace Stage we like upbeat, engaging music that can fill the meadow, and the Odditorium is more intimate, like a theater. We like music, comedy, juggling, but mostly music—quirky, fun and with a beat.
COMMUNITY VILLAGE STAGE – Community Village is often called ‘the heart of the Fair.’ Come play to a joyous community at this sweet spot of the Fair.
DANCE PAVILION – The Dance Pavilion is a venue designed to host a variety of dance and movement styles ranging from African to Eastern European, Salsa to Contra. Promoting healthy, active lifestyles, the Dance Pavilion features programming that appeals to all ages and abilities, with some performances that dazzle the senses of viewers while others encourage audience participation and learning.
KESEY STAGE – Kesey Stage is located in Energy Park, near the middle of the Fair. This stage welcomes a variety of performers including musicians, lecturers, panel discussion and more.
WORKIT SHOP – The WorkIt Shop area offers a fun, safe, empowering space to explore, move and create with our bodies. Highlighting the movement arts, this participatory venue utilizes various modalities including contact improv, yoga, post modern dance, hip-hop, belly dance, African dance, Latin dance, Polynesian dance, embodied consent workshops, and more. We would like to expand our offerings to include more age groups this year and offer more culturally diverse workshops.
MIDDLE EASTERN, AFRICAN OR ROMANY THEMED DANCERS AND MUSICIANS – The Caravan stage offers a mix of belly dancing and music from around the world. Please submit this application if that is your kind of performance.
