  • Faerieworlds 2013
    Every year, revelers gather in the forest of the Pacific Northwest to "experience the magic of the realm." Faerieworlds brings together music acts from around the globe, including celtic rock bands, folks trios, didgeridoo prodigies, ghost cellists, and more ethereal artists. Under bright lights and twinkling stars, audiences shed their inhibitions to dance, commune, eat, drink, and find new friends during the three-day celebration. Faerieworlds, a soft footprint event, reduces its impact on the physical world by using environmentally-sound practices and encouraging audiences to do the same. Organic and vegetarian food vendors fill the bellies of hungry guests. Afterwards, they can employ the onsite glass, paper, and plastic recycling programs. A rideshare program helps save gas, and 100% green electrical power reduces the footprint more effectively than building a massive megaphone in front of every stage.

  • Sublimity Harvest Festival
    Each year since 1973, on the weekend after Labor Day, engines rumble the very foundation of Sublimity. The Harvest Festival began as a simple tractor pull, and while that event remains a highlight, some of its wheels have gotten considerably bigger and more monstery. And that's not the only thing about the festival that's grown. Now a three-day affair, the schedule bursts at the mid-section with events such as a Fun Run, a parade, a KidZone with bounce houses and rides, and bands and magicians on the Coors Light stage. Yet all the fun and engine flexing is for a good cause. More than 25 community organizations, including the Sublimity Fire Department and Relay for Life, benefit from the festival's proceeds.

  • Airlie Hills Harvest Festival & Pumpkin Patch
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Airlie Hills Farm facet_type_id: 7ad29b10-5f39-1032-b7df-7a76f97454dc html_text: Airlie Hills Farm’s harvest festival has its roots in the early spring, when staffers prepare the ground for the planting of thousands of pumpkin seeds. Once hot summer air transforms into crisp fall breezes and the pumpkins spring from the vine, the farm’s annual event begins. Aliens use their spaceship’s giant tweezers to pluck strategic stalks from the 5-acre cornfield and transform it into a tricky maze, before kids and adults attempt to navigate it along with hay mazes and an easier kiddie maze. Wee ones climb atop hay forts and pyramids, slide down a giant indoor hay slide, and pay a visit to the farm’s resident animals.

  • Willamette Valley Pie Company - Leisure Offers
    When your berries and pies are sold all around the country, you need to have a lot of them. And indeed, Willamette Valley Pie Company's team handles 20 million pounds of fruit every summer and makes 2,400 pies during each eight-hour shift at the bakery. Its berries—all of which are individually quick-frozen so they won't stick together—also go into yogurt, muffins, ice cream, and smoothies. At its core, however, the company is local and family-owned. That's why it opened its Farm Store in 2009, creating a place where visitors could order freshly baked pies, tour the facilities, and even pick their own berries from the fields. The store also hosts an annual Pie and Harvest Festival in October. There, guests partake in classic autumnal activities, from exploring mazes to going on speed-dates with pumpkins to find their perfect match.

  • First Taste Oregon
    Formerly the Oregon Wine, Food & Brew Fest, 2015's First Taste Oregon will showcase the same types of Oregon talent: winemakers, brewers, distillers, and chefs. On Friday, January 23, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday, January 24, from noon to 10 p.m., a fresh lineup of vendors will flood the Oregon State Fair & Exposition Center's Columbia Hall with their pours, suds, and cuisine. Though the final list of exhibitors remains a mystery, participants have included Eastside Distilling—which led a special tasting of its bourbon, vodka, and coffee rum, among others—and demos by several Oregon chefs. Visitors can park in the free lot, and purchase some taste tickets to enjoy similar activities this year.
