Willamette Valley Old-Time Social

The first-ever Willamette Valley Old-Time Social was a raging success! We met our goals, with room to spare. We hosted folks from four states and even all the way from Berkley and British Columbia (so, now we can call ourselves an international festival!) with a whole weekend attendance at about 350 folks.

But, more importantly, we hope to have inspired our own local community to come together to make fun stuff happen right here in the Willamette Valley.


Many hands make light work! We couldn't have done it without all the volunteers who contributed time, creativity, good will and money.   Thank you, Volunteers!

Please consider making a donation to support this all-volunteer, non-profit festival. If you can’t donate, there are plenty of volunteer positions that need to be filled for next year! You can learn more or donate to the Social at www.mudcityoldtime.org.
