Since we here at the Reynolds Defense Firm have just opened a Salem office, we thought this was an appropriate week to focus on Marion County! There is no lack of natural beauty, outdoor recreation, exercise, and relaxation in this neck of the woods (click those links for ideas!), so we’re going to review some things to do in and around town between adventures. Also, this is officially the first weekend of summer, so get ready for some fun in and out of the sun!

Make Music Salem, June 21st

What better way to celebrate the first day of summer than by getting out to see some live music? Make Music Day Salem is joining over 1000 cities worldwide to offer free live performances in a wide variety of styles at a multitude of venues. This is annual event held around the solstice, meant to spread the joy of community and live music. Whether you are into Latin funk, hip hop, orchestral, jazz, or punk rock you’re certain to find something enticing (and maybe something outside of your comfort zone) to enjoy. Check out the interactive map at this link or browse artists at this link to dig into the details.

Silverton Farmers Market, June 22nd

Silverton is a picturesque little town snuggled amidst Marion County farmland that is definitely worth exploring – and they also happen to put on a fantastic farmers market! This delightfully healthy event is held every Saturday in summer from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM at the Silverton United Methodist Church parking lot, located at 203 W Main Street. Vendors are true locals from the surrounding area, offering all sorts of fresh fruits and veggies, eggs, honey, and other market standards along with local handmade products.

Grow Learn Play, June 20th-23rd

Willamette University is housing a new theatrical development company named Theatre 33, which has been busy developing theatrical productions with an emphasis on Oregon talent. This week is the debut of Grow Learn Play by Oregon Book Award winning playwright Sara Jean Accuardi. The play is framed by a child waiting to get picked up from daycare, described as, “…about the importance, and the limits, of sharing and caring.” Performances are held in the Putnam Studio Theatre of the Pelton building on Campus.

Enchanted Forest, open every day

No guide to fun in Marion County would be complete without mention of Enchanted Forest. Since 1971, this homespun fantasy theme park has been captivating the imaginations of Oregonian kids and the young at heart. Even if you don’t have any little ones in your life, go to take in the craft and wonder of this wonderfully weird place. There are a variety of rides, storytelling, food, and shopping to keep you enchanted! Tickets can be purchased in advance at this link. Enjoy!
