The Board of Directors of the Oregon Country Fair is seeking a dynamic, collaborative and strategic leader to build on the Fair’s rich history of supporting the arts, land stewardship and philanthropy, and to help shape the Fair’s ongoing relevancy in a changing world. Read more about this opportunity and the job description. The application period has closed. We will update this site in the months ahead.
We are excited to announce that OCF will be presenting Fair in the Clouds: A Virtual Event on July 9, 10 & 11, 2021. Please join us for 3 days of Fair magic and a long-awaited opportunity to gather, albeit virtually, as a community! Due to the continued public health risk presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting our traditional large in-person event this summer, but look forward to seeing you in the virtual clouds – and at future Fair programs!
The Oregon Country Fair expresses our profound outrage at the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others before them whose lives have been taken by racial violence. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the ongoing protests occurring throughout our country against the systemic racism that leads to these horrific deaths.
As an organization and community, the Oregon Country Fair is committed to the quest for social justice and the right for all people to live creative lives of dignity, respect, and meaning. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic and yet more killings of Black Americans have exposed the systemic racist underpinnings of our country and revealed how short we have fallen in creating a nation with “liberty and justice for all.”
We need to call out and condemn racism, oppression, and injustice when we see them in the world – but that starts at home. We pledge to look within and prioritize the difficult and uncomfortable work of challenging and overcoming the deeply entrenched personal and organizational assumptions and biases that have hindered our progress toward becoming a more welcoming, inclusive, and equitable organization and community for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
