Out-of-town residents have many other options for an overnight stay.

First, book soon! Labor Day Weekend is busy in Oregon's wine country and lodging fills up fast! ... The closer to Third Street (our "main drag") the better. There are two hotels downtown, McMenamins Hotel Oregon and The Atticus Hotel. Next we would recommend searching AirBnB and VRBO for vacation rentals. Third Street Flats and Douglas on Third both have cool downtown apartment options. Then there are myriad private rentals around the area to find, from single rooms in people's homes to full vacation house rentals. Other hotels that are a few miles from the festival grounds include the Red Lion Inn, Comfort Inn and GuestHouse Inn, the McMinnville Inn and the Motel 6.

Food & Drink

Several vendors from McMinnville's celebrated culinary scene will have fresh fare for sale at the festival. Locally crafted beer, wine and non-alcoholic options will be for sale. Check back for a list of vendors and beverage options. A drinking water station will be on the grounds. Outside alcohol is not permitted. Attendees can bring water and small food items in a container not exceeding 5 quarts.
