2020 Fair Canceled: Finding New Ways to Celebrate
Since 1969, the Oregon Country Fair has taken place every year, even in times of profound unrest. 2020 has been an especially difficult time for our city, region, country, and world and physically gathering thousands of Fair enthusiasts in Veneta, OR for our annual celebration is not possible this year.
In these challenging times, we will endeavor to do what our community has come to expect—for the Fair to connect the community with events and experiences that nourish the spirit, explore living artfully and authentically on Earth, and transform culture in magical, joyous and healthy ways. We know the Fair has powerful magic. It sparks conversation. It uplifts. It inspires. It brings us together. It can help to heal.
We’re Going Virtual 2020—July 10, 11 & 12!
We are excited to announce the first virtual Oregon Country Fair on July 10th, 11th, and 12th. This is something we have never done before and just like our normal event in July, volunteers, entertainers, artisans, and YOU will help make it incredible. Just like when we are together physically, there will be lots of different things you can choose to do and you can do them in different ways!
Volunteers are busy creating a myriad of options to celebrate and engage during our virtual event July 10, 11 & 12. On top of everything else, there are two cool projects that let you wander the Fair paths! Our Cartography Crew has come up with a fantastic interactive Peach Pit map. And The m8rix Team has created the exciting “Fair in the Clouds 3D Experience”: a 3D-virtual representation of the OCF, complete with stage acts, booths, and the ability to wander The Fair in the Clouds.
While we want to hold hands, we will instead hold space…for hope, for each other, and for this community who remind us that under the bleakest of circumstances there is beauty and light that shine through.
We will have more information coming soon so be sure to check our website home page for details. 🍑
