What Does “Country Fair” Mean To You?

As a born and raised Montanan, the words “country fair” mean livestock, 4-H, bump-n-runs, mini donuts, rodeos, country concerts, and cowboy boots. Last month I learned that those words mean something entirely different to the small city of Veneta, OR and the thousands of people who attend the Oregon Country Fair every year.

Hood River Wine & Brew Tour

The fourth of July really seemed to sneak up on me this year. I’m not sure if it was the three week’s worth of clouds and rain prior to the holiday that was to blame but June came and went and I found myself without much of a plan.

Thankfully, my friends and I made last minute plans to escape for the day to a place that is home to a handful of breweries and wineries.
