A complete guide to the Oregon Country Fair so you know what to expect, what to enjoy, and where to stay during this hippie festival in Veneta, Oregon.
The Oregon Country Fair has become a staple in Oregon since its start in 1969. I heard about it enough times before I moved to Oregon – mainly from my hippie parents – and I knew I wanted to check it out for myself once I was living in the Pacific Northwest.
The Oregon Country Fair is a three-day festival in Veneta, just outside of Eugene, Oregon.
The fair usually happens at the beginning to middle of July and is something between a renaissance fair, music festival, and an acid trip from the 60s. They continue to expand the festival every year because it has become such a big deal in the community over the past 50 years.
In 2019, the fair had a record attendance with over 50,000 attendees. You could say it has kind of become a big deal in the US festival scene.
The best things to do in Sacramento! From popular attractions to historic sights, craft beer, and where to stay and eat, there’s a lot more to California’s capital than just politics and cows.
When deciding where to stop on a California road trip, it’s easy to pass over the state capital. Sacramento might not be as popular as San Francisco or Los Angeles with tourists, but that’s where its charm lies. You would be amiss to think there aren’t enough things to do in Sacramento, just because of its focus on politics and farming (weird combo, I know).
If you’re having a mental tug-of-war about whether it’s worth going so far inland for a visit, do it. There is so much to explore and experience in Sacramento, and it’s well worth the journey inland from the coast to check out everything that this sleepy big city has to offer.
At the very least, you’ll be able to see Arnold’s smiling portrait in the capitol building and look back on the time when California decided to elect the terminator to public office. 👀
In Sacramento, there are politicians everywhere and suits walking the streets as you would expect, but the city is edgier than most people think. There is endless street art, a delicious local craft beer scene, and history around every corner.
These are my picks for the top things to do in Sacramento, whether it’s your first time to the city or you’re a regular visitor.
