Plans are moving ahead for the 4th annual Oregon Trail Days Festival, celebrating Oregon’s American Indian and Western heritage. The committee is working hard at creating an event that will surpass all others. The festival will be a full TWO DAY event at Lowden State Park this year, with entertainment running constantly all day long on both days.
The Blackhawk Performance Group will have several American Indian Dancers and at least 2 Drum groups. Dancing and storytelling will be constant throughout the event, with authentic American Indian dances, beautiful handmade regalia, children’s dances, constant drum music and more.
The Cowboy arena will be a wonder to the eyes with a 150 foot Western Town, authentic medicine wagon, rough and tumble cowboys, faithful horses, famous female gunslingers, whips, yodeling, cowboy songs and a variety of western demonstrators and encampments.
Along with our Mountain Man encampment which was added last year we will be presenting a Pioneer Gathering complete with Pioneer Cabin, rope making, candle making, brooms, blacksmithing and other period demonstrators.
There will be a quilt show, food vendors, merchants and more to experience. But possibly the best addition of all to the 2013 Oregon Trail Days is the Lorado Taft Field Campus, for the first time in many years visitors will be able to walk the campus, see the original buildings from Lorado Taft’s Eagles Nest Art Colony and even have breakfast at the cafeteria.
The Outdoor Saloon & Eatery will feature a Bags Tournament in downtown Oregon and we will be bringing back the very popular Terry Lee Goffee as Johnny Cash along with two other country performances.
