Into The Woods With The Oregon Country Fair

Break out the tie-dye, the Country Fair is back soon.  The R is not an accident. 

The Oregon Country Fairis different from a county fair: less livestock, more sustainability. 

What began as a renaissance fair decades ago stuck around, something of an outpost of 60s counter-culture in our time. 

Charlie Ruff is the boss of the OCF and our guest once again.  The fair runs the weekend AFTER the 4th of July.
