92.7 KOCF and the Oregon Country Fair Bring You the 2nd Annual Costume Hullabaloo Benefit For Community Radio and The Jill Heiman Vision Fund

“Buy the ticket, take the ride” Hunter S. Thompson, American Philosopher

Eugene, Oregon July 29, 2019 – November 1, 2019 will be 50 years to the day that the first Oregon Country Fair was held. What started out as a benefit for an alternative school has become one of the premiere philanthropic organizations in the state. Through the years the Oregon Country Fair has established a rich and varied history providing a venue for alternative arts, educational opportunities and land stewardship throughout Lane County. The Oregon Country Fair provides events and experiences that cultivate the spirit, explores living authentically on Earth, and transforming culture in magical, festive and healthy ways.

Clearly, a celebration is in order, a big celebration. 92.7 KOCF (The Fair’s Official Radio Station) and The Oregon County Fair are throwing a party. What better way to celebrate the Fair’s original autumnal event than with a Costume Ball and concert. KOCF Program Director Andy Goldfinger will emcee and preside over the festivities and he will be joined by a bevy of deejays, city officials and other dignitaries.

This event could not be complete without ample entertainment. The evening’s musical sustenance will be provided by Eugene favorite Terrapin Flyer, celebrating 20 years of touring. There will also be an opening set by The Real Gone Trio. These musicians are masters at their craft and are sure to provide a musical experience that all will enjoy.

Join us for this celebration of family, fun and folly November 1st, starting at 7pm at the W.O.W. Hall, located at 8th and Lincoln, in Eugene. There will be a raffle to benefit KOCF and the Fair’s philanthropic Jill Heiman Vision Fund, great music and entertainment. What better way to show your support for community radio with your sliding scale donation at the door. And don’t forget costumes are a must and there are door prizes too!
