Once a year, tucked away in Veneta, Oregon, people gather from around the globe to dance, sing, and let their freak flags fly. The Oregon Country Fair started in 1969 as a benefit for an alternative school and it has only grown since. With over 75 food booths and 700 artisan booths, the fair aims to promote “people living artfully and authentically on Earth.” Upon arrival, visitors can take dance and yoga classes, watch various performers ranging from Bhangra to juggling, and even gaze at seasonal wildflowers and butterflies in prime blooming season. At the fair, more is more and the weirder the better. Here at Buffalo Exchange Eugene, we put together a couple outfits as modeled by our employees for inspiration.
One look incorporates the magical vibe of the fair with fairy wings that flap when arms are raised and Indian-inspired saris.
The other look is a typical Buffalo Exchange find: a handmade, hand-painted two piece set that we paired with funky flower antlers. Whether you’re headed towards Veneta to find your inner self and embrace the arts and human spirit, or going to a festival near you, Buffalo will have just the right outfit!
