Slimella Bella at the 50th Oregon County Fair
The Oregon Country Fair creates events and experiences that nourish the spirit, explore living artfully and authentically on earth, and transform culture in magical, joyous and healthy ways.
The Oregon Country Fair is an annual three-day festival offering the finest in entertainment, hand-made crafts, delectable food and information sharing. The Fair takes place in Veneta, Oregon, about 15 miles west of Eugene. We are in a wooded setting with our own water and communication systems, security team, recycling service and much, much more. We enjoy a mutually cooperative relationship with our neighbors and a solid niche in the Veneta community.
With the generous support of Oregon Country Fair volunteers and Fairgoers, and through our tax-exempt designation, the Fair continues to carry out our original philanthropic intention: building community and helping others. Our very first event in November 1969 was a fundraiser for an alternative school. Fifty years later, the Fair has put into motion three grant-giving programs and produces non-profit events like Culture Jam, an eight-day teen arts camp that serves more than 50 youths each summer. On the eve of our 50th Anniversary, we are proud to say that the Fair has donated over $1.5 million back into the larger community. Source: Oregon Country Fair
