Welcome to the 5th annual Oregon Trail Days Festival, celebrating Oregon’s American Indian and Western heritage.  The festival committee is working hard at creating an event that will surpass all others.  The festival will be a full TWO DAY event at Lowden State Park, with entertainment running constantly all day long on both days. 

We are proud to welcome back the Blackhawk Performance Group to the American Indian Drum Circle. Dancing and storytelling will be constant throughout the event, with authentic American Indian dances, beautiful handmade regalia, children’s dances, constant drum music and more.

We have not yet lined up all of our entertainment for the Cowboy Arena but we can assure you that it will be a wonder to the eyes, ears and senses.  We always have a wide variety of rough and tumble cowboys, faithful horses and a famous gunslinger or two. Check back around March 1 for a full listing of Cowboy entertainment.

Once again we will feature a Mountain Man Encampment featuring everyone’s favorite Mountain Man, Dirty Kettle along with a Pioneer Gathering complete with Pioneer Cabin, rope making, candle making, brooms, blacksmithing and other period demonstrators.

There will be lots of children’s activities including pony rides, archery demonstrations, a Western Photo Booth, Pioneer Games and more.

Aa quilt show, food vendors, merchants and more will round out this exciting event.  The best feature of all is the Lorado Taft Breakfast at the Field Campus and tours of this historic facility.  Visitors will be able to walk the campus, see the original buildings from Lorado Taft’s Eagles Nest Art Colony and have breakfast at the cafeteria.

Come visit our page often for more information about this unique and fun event!  Oregon Trail Days.
