COOS BAY — Celebrate harvest time for blackberries. The Coos Bay Downtown Association has scheduled Back to our Roots, the 34th annual Blackberry Arts Festival, for the fourth weekend of August.
The three day festival takes place in downtown Coos Bay in the heart of the city. Bring your unique art or craft to demonstrate and market, or spread the word and invite a vendor you think would be suited to this event. Vendors are invited to participate in this juried event and to take the opportunity to spend the weekend in Oregon's Bay Area. Vendors can spend a few more days and explore what the Southern Oregon Coast has to offer.
A second opportunity for artisans and food vendors will be during the Bay Area Fun Festival, the last full weekend in September, one of the best times to enjoy the coastal climate.
