Join us for the Drive Thru Ag Fest to experience the incredible world of Oregon agriculture, in a fun-filled, drive thru environment, and leave our event with an “Ag-venture” kit filled with activities, seedlings and more to continue the fun at home. Our three-day event, aimed to help families better understand where their food, fiber and flora come from, is a unique learning experience, where drive by exhibits make learning about Oregon’s vast agricultural industry educational and entertaining.
We strive to bridge the gap between urban and rural life, and to share the wonder and abundance of Oregon’s bountiful and diverse harvest. Most importantly, this year we are doing this in a safe drive thru manner.
See animals, farm equipment, and a variety of things grown in Oregon, all from the comforts of your car! Due to the pandemic, you’ll get to stay seated this year to learn more about the importance, variety and vitality of Oregon agriculture. While the format may look different, we’re excited to carry-on our 34-year tradition of showcasing all of the wonderful things that come from Oregon farms. We have lots of fun planned for your family, including activity books and an “Ag-venture” kit that each vehicle will receive, so you’ll take home lots of fun activities, seedlings and other items to help you experience agriculture. So, buckle-up and head to a new spot, with new hours, and expect LOTS of fun viewing animals, farm equipment and seeing where your food, fiber and flora come from!
Buy your tickets in advance and pick what day and time you’d like your “Ag-venture” to start!
Discounted tickets can be pre-purchased at your local Wilco Farm Store.

While buying your tickets ahead of time is recommended, cash and credit cards are accepted at the gate.

About Oregon Ag Fest
Agriculture is one of the few industries that affects us all. It involves the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and many of the materials we use in our daily lives. Though agriculture is such a major part of our everyday lives, most people don’t know much more than where to buy the products they need.
Oregon Ag Fest is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, created in 1987 to highlight the importance of agriculture. We demonstrate how significant agriculture’s economic impact, logistics and practices are: showing folks, especially kids, such things as where the food they eat comes from, how sheep are raised for wool to make clothing, to the importance of our forests for ecology and human survival.
