The Newberg Old Fashioned Festival is right around the corner! Are you going this year? This multi-day festival (July 28-31) that happens every summer at the end of July is the quintessential Oregon wine country activity that features some fun entertainment for the whole family to enjoy! Be sure to stop by Trellis for a meal or two while you are enjoying all the fun things this festival has to offer. Here are our favorite things to do on this fun weekend in the Willamette Valley.

Parade

The annual parade is a great way to get in the spirit and appreciate all the organizations that our local community has to offer. From live animals, classic cars, and instruments, there are lots going on during the parade. Be sure to grab a spot on the route to see Ben Erb, a longtime Newberg resident, as the Grand Marshall of this Year’s Parade.

Fireworks

Taking place on Saturday, July 30th at 10 pm at Renne Field, the fireworks that are part of the Old Fashioned Festival are an exciting part of this annual festival and should not be missed. Join the community to celebrate all things wine country with this beautiful display of fireworks. Since it doesn’t start until 10 pm, be sure to come to Trellis for a nice, relaxing dinner before the show and make it an evening truly worth celebrating.

Cruise-in Car Show

Do you have a car lover in your family? Or, are you yourself the one who is into all sorts of unique vehicles? If so, the Old Fashioned Festival car show is for you! Finally, back after a three-year hiatus, the cruise-in car show features interesting cars, lots of kid-friendly activities, and a raffle to win exciting prizes.

Live Music

There are lots of live music acts happening over the three-day celebrations, so you can pick and choose which ones you’d like to attend. Sit back, enjoy the show, and then head to Trellis for a nice meal. And remember, we have takeout options if the thought of setting up a summertime picnic and enjoying nice weather, live music, and good company sounds like your perfect evening.

With so much happening in Oregon wine country this summer, there are lots of fun events to attend. Don’t miss out on one of our personal favorites, the Newberg Old Fashioned Festival!
