Klamath Basin Potato Festival

Since 1934, Merrill Oregon has hosted the Klamath Basin Potato Festival. The festival, honoring the farming heritage of the community, has evolved throughout the years and includes a parade, BBQs, live music, beer garden and more. This year’s Potato Festival Theme, “Potatoes, Still #1,” illustrates how potatoes have been the lifeblood of this community since the beginning when Merrill was founded in 1890. 

This event is a designated Oregon Heritage Tradition
