It’s a Happening! Find OR Country “Fair In The Clouds” Weekend Schedule Here

Oregon Country Fair
/

For the second year, the Oregon Country Fair will not be held on the wooded site in Veneta. The pandemic forced the decision in late spring, when many would have begun preparing for the popular festival. In the interest of safety, the Board of Directors made the choice to put an in-person Country Fair on hold-- again. What will happen this weekend is a virtual event called Fair in the Clouds.

You won’t have to buy a ticket or a parking pass. All you need to attend this Country Fair event is a computer or phone and an internet connection.

Everything starts at 11 am Friday, July 9, 2021 at oregoncountryfair.org 

You might choose the 3-D option to meet up with friends and experience the Oregon Country Fair site virtually. There will be four live streams where fair goers can see and hear musical performances, panel discussions and workshops. Artisans will sell their wares. There’s even a Peach Pit, the indespencible guide to Fair.

Crystalyn Frank is OCF Operations Manager and has attended the Fair her entire life. The Peach is the symbol of Oregon Country Fair.

Crystalyn Frank is Operations Manager for the OCF. She’s been amazed at how much work it takes to make Fair in the Clouds.  

“The desire and willingness to give, among not just our volunteers but our crafters and the food booths and the entertainers, it’s definitely an act of love. And all of that comes together --whether we’re in-person or doing a virtual event-- and make something really beautiful.”

Unlike last year when a lot of the content was archived material, Frank said most of the stuff you’ll catch this weekend is new. From puppet shows to fire-dancing, jazz to jam bands—Oregon Country Fair is happening in cyber space this weekend and you’re invited.
