Fun for the entire family!
The heart of soul of Oregon Ag Fest! With over 25 hands-on activities and an agricultural scavenger hunt that will have you looking for clues in all the exhibits, Ag Country is set-up to reflect a rural town. Watch chicks hatch, shuck corn, dig for potatoes and so much more! You will have the opportunity to plant seedlings, sample Oregon-made products, make a dirt baby or choose from an array of other activities that make learning about life on the farm fun. All activities are free of charge and aim to gain a better understanding of where your food, fiber and flora come from.
Welcome to “Nosey’s Neighborhood!” Meet “Nosey” the cow and get close to many of her farm friends including goats, sheep, beef cattle, horses, pigs, chickens and rabbits. Sheep shearing happens throughout the weekend, so stop by and watch a sheep get a haircut, or llamas parade around the ring during the llama show.
Watch llamas compete and cheer-on your favorite contestant.
With four pony rings to choose from, the pony rides are an event favorite! While the line may be long at times, the friendly ponies make it worth the wait.
Mini-pedal tractor races happen throughout the weekend on an indoor obstacle course in the tradeshow building. Pick your favorite tractor and pedal to the finish line!
Craft & Garden Show
Oregon-made goods, garden and landscape plants and more. Like an old-time country fair, you’ll find everything from artisan-made cheese and salsa, to jewelry and home furnishings! You won’t want to miss the plant sale and other tradeshow booths.
Clowns, face painting, wagon rides, and live music are just some of the attractions your family will enjoy. Watch a cooking demonstration or enjoy a fashion show on the Ag Country stage. With two stages of entertainment, there is a lot happening. Help Alex Zerbe juggle, Leapin’ Louie lasso, and Old Mother Goose make butter! There are also horse and wagon rides to get you around the fairgrounds!
