Is this festival still operating every year, or has it folded?

This is the first I've ever heard of one existing....However, there was a multi-venue folk festival a few months back in Portland....I think Peter Yarrow was one of the performers....I understand they want to do it again this year....

There is apparently a festival going on this weekend in Portland too...bluegrass and americana I gather.

Also there is a folk festival each September over in Sisters....

The Oregon Folklife Festival, which had been produced in Corvallis, died several years ago. It had suffered from a perpetual disagreement on whether it should be a venue for local unpaid musicians or a major production with professionals brought in from outside. It would go with local musicians until someone who wanted to make it big-time took over for a few years, burned out and then someone local took it back for local musicians. Unfortunately, the last time a big-time director burned out there was no one local to take it over, so it died.

Too bad. Thanks for the info. We are planning trip to OR from the east coast and had hoped to take it in! Maybe it will revive someday...

Last I heard, the Sisters Blues event, which was all about bringing in 'supposed' big name talent and asking locals to play for free was badly in the red. I don't think that they could blame that loss on the local talent, given that they weren't getting paid. I'm not certain that this event is still happening.
