About The Oregon Country Fair
The Oregon Country Fair is best know as the host of an annual, three-day cultural exposition that asks the question, “How do we want to live?” The non-profit fair organization, which is also owner and steward of approximately 446 acres of land in Veneta, demonstrates a commitment to sustainability and seeks to model sustainable living for other organizations, events and in the living of daily life.
The fair also continues to make significant contributions to the community of Veneta, and has received a special Community Stakeholders award from the Fern Ridge Chamber of Commerce for its stewardship of land, philanthropy to schools, and arts and economic solutions. Fairgoers support the spirit of the fair year-round by helping raise money for the Oregon Country Fair Endowment Fund and the Jill Heiman Vision Fund, which provides grants to local nonprofit organizations and social services agencies. Between these grants, as well as charitable donations from its board of directors, the fair has awarded nearly $1,000,000 to Lane County nonprofit and youth-oriented organizations in the past 22 years.
