Oregon Country Fair 1969-2009

The Fair is officially middle-aged! Now older than many of its participants, the Oregon Country Fair celebrates this year with all of the joy, verve, sparkles, painted bodies and fairy wings the entire city knows and loves. We tell you where to take your kids, what to see on the main stage, how to get there with an eye to the planet and the plans to make the Fair a citywide presence all year. So slather on the enviro-safe sunscreen, grab a water bottle, buy your Green Ticket and hop the bus to what’s by far the largest party this area sees each year. Veneta, here we come! — Suzi Steffen
