This year, the Oregon Country Fair was designated an Oregon Heritage Tradition. KLCC’s Tiffany Eckert takes a walk down memory lane with an archivist, a museum curator and an historian to reminisce on 50 years of Fair.

On Thursday, July 7, 2017, my wife Sandune and I headed to the Oregon Coast. Highway 126 takes us west, through Veneta. This is the day before the Oregon Country Fair opens to the public. In previous years, we would have been heading to the Fair instead of the coast. But I just retired from KLCC and this is the beginning of things being different.
