Columbia Gorge Bluegrass Festival: Stevenson WA. July 25th to July 28th.

This is the largest festival of the year in this area. Lots of national acts on the big stage, a beer garden, a dance hall, workshops, food and instrument vendors. The view of the gorge from this location in the fairgrounds is spectacular. Plus there is a sizable pond for canoeing or kayaking. Reservations for big RVs and camping need to be made well in advance. It’s windy folks. Stake all your stuff down, including the kids and dogs. My 10x10 canopy was half way to Idaho before I caught up to it a few years back.

Wheeler County Bluegrass Festival: Fossil, OR. July 5th to July 7th.

This festival is hot. I recommend you throw an inflatable wading pool in the back of the car before you leave town for this one. This weekend always holds some of my fondest memories of the summer. There is a parade on Friday, a car rally all weekend with an Elvis impersonator. The main stage is at the Courthouse lawn which is nicely shaded.
