2nd Star Festival presents its third annual Cultural Arts celebration honoring creativity of all forms to be held Dorris Ranch in Springfield, OR - only a few minutes off of I-5 across the interstate from Eugene - on August 5th and 6th, 2017. The event will highlight 100+ artisans, authors, illustrators along with performers of music, storytelling, and puppetry & more. It is an experience for all ages to be mesmerized and immersed in a land of imagination and inspiration. “What an amazing event filled with incredible vendors, wonderful performances, and abounding in creative energy! My familly can't wait to return.” (Brian W. Parker – 11-10-15)
Following two fun, exciting, successful years in 2015 and 2016, our festivities for 2017 will continue to include opportunities for participants to be captivated by many unique areas of creativity meant to inspire and encourage! Artisan booths will offer unique ink stamps for attendees to collect in their Passports as they wind their way through the indoor Goblin Market. Make sure to journey through the Steampunk Museum, tour a couple of Tiny Homes, and grab some food, non-alcoholic drinks, coffee, and tea from one of the many food trucks. Don't forget to a cider or wine from our Cider & Wine Garden sponsored by local WildCraft Cider Works.
Workshops and talks can be found under the Workshop Pavilion. Take a step through the gates of the Lost Boy/Girl Encampment (Family/Kids' Area),where you will find mermaids, pirates, face painting, demonstrations, gaming area, & more!
