Hopefully you had a safe and enjoyable July 4th – it’s always disorientating to break up the middle of a work week, because just as many of us are back at work plugging away today, another weekend is set to begin! Understandably, you might not have much of a coherent plan for the next few days, since you’ve been focused on Independence Day celebrations. Luckily for you, we here at Reynolds Defense Firm have got your back! This weekend, we’re looking at interesting things to do in and around Yamhill County. The heart of Oregon’s wine country might seem like a tricky spot to find events that don’t center around alcohol, but it turns out there is plenty to enjoy without fermented beverages. Here are just a few options:

MacFresco, weekly through the summer:

For the last three summers, historic downtown McMinnville has closed off Third Street to traffic, making a pedestrian-friendly playground of food, entertainment, and shopping. What started as a pandemic-era stopgap measure has taken on a lovely life of its own. You’ll find everything from antiques to coffee to art on this open-air market. If you haven’t spent time in downtown McMinnville, MacFresco is a perfect opportunity to take in the quaint charm and welcoming vibes. Make sure to stop by one of several galleries for local and regional art.

U-Pick at Wayward Winds, June 29-August 11:

Wayward Winds Lavender Farm in Newberg is full of wonderful-smelling blooms and hand-crafted products. For the next few weeks between the hours of 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, you can pick your own, explore the Lavender-a-maze, and explore all the possibilities and products related to this magical plant. Admission is free, leashed dogs are welcome, and the fragrance is decidedly pleasant. Check the link here for FAQ, and go here for directions.

Movies on the Lawn / Float & Film, July 5 – July 6:

The Vintages Trailer Resort in Dayton is a lovely place to enjoy some nostalgic glamping in their rentable classic Airstream trailers, and it makes a great home base as you explore the region. If you live in the area anyway, you can always enjoy a free movie on the lawn on Friday nights or take in a film from the pool on Saturday evenings. This weekend seems to have a “let’s watch people get eaten” theme, as the films are Jurassic World and Jaws, respectively. Free popcorn is provided, and snacks and beverages are available for purchase. Bring out the (probably not too-young) kids and soak up the summer communal fun!

Gizmos and Gadgets, July 6-7:

If you’re looking for an educational experience this weekend, take some time to experience the Yamhill County Historical Society & Musuems. Yamhill County is host to five museums, all of which are worth digging into. Through August 2nd, the Yamhill Valley Heritage Center is hosting Gizmos and Gadgets: How Invention Changed the American Household, where you can explore the doodads that have shaped our lives and culture over the last couple of centuries. Admission is a suggested $5 donation, and the exhibit is open Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Enjoy!
