The two events that come to mind are my two favorite events that hit the Willamette Valley in early September. I know you said you were visiting Oregon this summer, however, if you are able to extend your trip, it would be totally worth it!
First of all, Albany holds an event each year called, “Antiques in the Streets!” It is held Saturday, September 8, 2012 – all day long! This event is held every year on the Saturday after Labor Day. It’s huge and with that and all the other antique shops in town, you are sure to fill your entire Saturday.
We have several hotels in Albany, however, there is a very sweet B & B in Brownsville called the Brownsville House B & B. Cyndi and Bob have lived in Brownsville for over 30 years. The perfect place to go to after Albany’s Antiques in the Streets and a just a short drive to Coburg the next day for their Antique Fair! There are also a lot of B & B’s in Eugene just outside of Coburg for lodging as well if you choose to stay close to the Sunday fair.
