The band Left on Wilson, comprising Cameron Wick, from left, Josh Nodarse and Page Taylor, is one of the bands performing in the virtual concert for the Oregon Country Fair this year.

On July 10, Eugene’s Saturday Market and the Oregon Country Fair will bring the iconic festivities to downtown for the first time since each event’s inception about 50 years ago.

“That’s never happened before in the history of our organizations,” artisan and Saturday Market organizer Diane McWhorter  said. “And it’s because of COVID. It’s the silver lining of the cloud.”

The 52nd edition of the OCF, “Fair in the Clouds,” will stream free for the second consecutive year July 9-11. Live music, workshops and booths will air on KOCF 92.7, via crewman Chris Calef’s virtual “m8trix” and streaming from the Fair’s website, oregoncountryfair.org.

In addition, the Saturday Market will host its second Twilight Market of the year, screening live music from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at its Eighth Avenue and Oak Street location.
