Oregon Country Fair: Photos from a Counter-Culture Festival
The Oregon Country Fair is a three-day community gathering held annually near Eugene, Oregon, featuring food, crafts, entertainment, and a unique commune-style atmosphere. The festival, which began in 1969 as a celebration of the counter-culture movement, is a one-of-a-kind experience that should not be missed. The costumed crowd is as entertaining as the jugglers, musicians, mimes, and stilt-walkers that mingle with the fair goers. Angels, faeries, aliens, and hippies all add to the festive atmosphere. If you like your entertainment mainstream, are afraid of a little nudity, or disapprove of the occasional whiff of marijuana, then this fair is not for you.
