Oregon Country Fair Attracts Sellout Crowds

The Saloon Ensemble plays at the Oregon Country Fair

The Oregon Country Fair brought tens of thousands of people to the middle of Veneta.   The Eugene Register-Guard reported that the event drew 14,200 fairgoers on Friday, a sellout crowd of 18,400 on Saturday and 13,339 today, for a three-day total of 45,939, spokeswoman Vanessa Ward said.

University of Oregon’s daily publication, The Daily Emerald, shared pictures from the three-day event.

The fair is so popular it even has its own page on Wikipedia.  The new site, Qwiki also has information about the annual fair.

KEZI reported on the events happening last Friday to kick off the weekend.  Fairgoer Trenton Brown told KEZI reporter Jessica Debbas, “I’ve been to festies all over the United States and there’s nowhere like this place.  It’s a mystical land.”

People could easily find information on transportation, concert schedules, and see real time pictures on Twitter, too.

It was another successful year at the Oregon Country Fair.  Until next year, Oregonians.
