Did you know that Oregon is turning 150 next year? As we approach our sesquicentennial celebration, we decided to look at the different cultures and peoples that have influenced this special place called Oregon.

With you in mind, we compiled a fun list of heritage attractions and festivals, including Mt. Angel Oktoberfest, Native American Pow Wows, Alpenfest and so many others.

Even this month’s Chicken Paprika recipe hails from an exotic culture.

See you in Oregon, where we’re tracing our roots!
