Canceled In Person: Oregon Country Fair Offers A Virtual Experience For 2020

The typical OCF features little physical distancing.
The typical OCF features little physical distancing.

The Oregon Country Fair, like many a festival that draws crowds of people, will not happen this year. The site near Veneta will be silent in mid-July for the first time in a half-century.

But there will be an online version of the OCF, a way to take in the sights and sounds without leaving a computer screen. It won't be the same, but it will keep the fair on people's minds during the hiatus.

We visit with Wally Bomgaars, OCF Executive Director, and operations manager Kristalynn Frank, about what will be offered online.
