The Oregon Country Fair features more than music, food, jugglers, acrobats and funny costumes. If you're looking for a shady spot for some live theater and laughs, the Morningwood Odditorium is the place for you. During pre-fair set up, KLCC's Rachael McDonald stopped by to talk with a couple of actors, Christopher Huson and Maque DaVis.
"Beauty and the Beast" is performed at noon and 3 o'clock each day of the fair at the Morningwood Odditorium.
The Oregon Country Fair will lure thousands of people to the woods in Veneta this weekend. KLCC's Rachael McDonald checked in with Fair General Manager Charlie Ruff this week to find out what fair-goers can expect.
Workers are putting finishing touches on the fanciful structures that dot the landscape of this wooded tract of land in Veneta. Charlie Ruff says this year's heavy snows and icy temperatures caused some damage.
A suspected arson fire did extensive damage to a large wooden dragon sculpture at the Oregon Country Fair site in Veneta late last week.
The dragon near the entrance to the Oregon Country Fair is familiar to people who've visited the annual three day festival. OCF General Manager Charlie Ruff says the dragon's head and tale are still intact but the middle of the wooden structure was destroyed. Ruff says it's a blow because the dragon is an important feature at the fair.
