at Lake Selmac County Park, off McMullen Creek Road (Directions)
The Hope Mountain Barter Faire is a 3-day celebration of culture and creative energies. The faire features unique entertainment, trading, live music, and great food. This is a family-friendly event. All are invited to attend as long as you are respectful, responsible, cooperative and nonviolent. Let’s keep this event safe and nurturing for our children. Please note a change of venue: This year’s faire will take place at Lake Selmac County Park.
Please note that marijuana use is illegal in a public space. (Here is a link to relevant Oregon law.)
A few notes for the new location: Be prepared for cold nights… Bring tie-downs or weights for windy conditions… There is a disc golf course on-site… There are a limited number of camping sites in the trees for $100 (on top of admission prices) on a first come first served basis.
Also, a special note for all Food Vendors (and others): With our move and new logistics, unfortunately, we have not been able to put together a dishwashing station this year. Food vendors and attendees should bring paper plates. Please no styrofoam or throwaway plastic dishes. Individual vendors are encouraged to set up their own dish wash stations, if they prefer, and can then bring re-useable plates. Sorry for the inconvenience, everyone.
The Hope Mountain Barter Faire began in 2003 as a way to support the programs and people of the Dome School. Today the faire is sponsored by YES! (Youth Empowerment & Support), a non-profit organization created to continue this mission of support for the Dome School’s programs.
Take a look around this website to learn more about the faire, but note well: numerous volunteer opportunities are available, which can provide you free admission!
