Sisters Folk Festival

Sisters Folk Festival is an annual music event in a charming mountain town located in central Oregon. The festival features 31 diverse artists performing at seven venues throughout the downtown area. It also hosts workshops and other special events.

While big-name headliners like John Craigie, Darlingside, and Donna the Buffalo filled the large venues to capacity, many of the other performers drew enthusiastic audiences. Two-thirds of the featured artists were making their Sisters debuts introducing them to new audiences. They included Crys Matthews, Goodnight Moonshine, Olive Klug, Chastity Brown, and the Sensational Barnes Brothers.

In addition to the concerts, Sisters Folk Festival supports year-round music and arts education programs in central Oregon. This includes the Sisters High School Americana Project and the Community Luthier program. In addition, the organization provides a series of creative camps for kids and adults. Many of these programs are offered on a pay-what-you-can basis to eliminate financial barriers for high-risk individuals.

Montavilla Jazz Festival

The Montavilla Jazz Festival is a neighborhood-based event that features world-class local musicians. The Festival is a nonprofit organization that is supported by donors and volunteers. Its mission is to bolster Portland’s dynamic jazz culture while enriching the Montavilla community.

This year’s Montavilla Jazz Festival runs from September 1-3, with concerts in five venues. The lineup is curated through an artist-driven curation process that prioritizes creative presentations and celebrates a broad spectrum of what jazz means today.

The festival’s 10th season begins with the Portland Youth Jazz Orchestra Vanguard Combo at Vino Veritas Wine Bar & Bottle Shop. The music then shifts to Mt. Tabor Park for the world premiere of Views of an Urban Volcano at the Caldera Amphitheater. The concert is part of a collaboration between Montavilla Jazz and the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, and is inspired by the park’s natural and cultural history. The opening concert also includes Vestal Stories, a Mary-Sue Tobin Sextet project developed during Tobin’s tenure as Montavilla Jazz’s artist in residence at Vestal Elementary School.

Oregon Country Fair

The Oregon Country Fair is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that hosts an annual 3-day event in Veneta, Oregon each July. It is a celebration and exposition of alternative lifestyles, crafts, and food. It also offers a range of entertainment and activities.

Founded in 1969, OCF has evolved into a popular arts and music festival, but still maintains its philanthropic roots by supporting non-profit groups with fundraising and providing alternative lifestyle education to young people. Although OCF is officially alcohol and drug free, it has a long-held reputation as an anti-establishment gathering where attendees can let their hair down and wear tie-dyed shirts.

Whether you’re in the mood for experimental folk singers strumming shovels or awe-inspiring circus acts, there is something to please everyone at the Fair. There are dozens of stages, including the W.C. Fields stage with its new vaudeville acts, the Shady Grove stage with a grab bag of styles and musicians, and the Kesey stage where jugglers, clowns, and musical spoons entertain. Kids are welcome too, with a dedicated Youth Stage that features sing-along shows and magic acts.

Oregon Jamboree

The Oregon Jamboree is one of the northwest’s premier country music festivals and takes place in Sweet Home. The event is a huge boon to the community of Sweet Home and draws visitors from all over the United States and even internationally. The festival features a variety of local and international musicians and artists, as well as many different activities for the entire family.

The festival is a 501(c)-4 nonprofit organization and all proceeds go back into the community for economic development purposes. Past performers include Cole Swindell, Gary Allan, and Neal McCoy. In addition to the concerts, the event has plenty of food and drink vendors.

Media credentials are available for working radio, TV, and online journalists assigned to cover the event. All requests must be submitted at least three days in advance.
