How This Small Oregon Town Quietly Became The Coolest Place In The Pacific Northwest
There’s something inherently ‘cool’ about music festivals. Maybe it’s because they harken back to the free-wheeling ’60s; maybe it’s because the U.S. has some truly bucket-list-level festivals; maybe it’s simply that musicians are just plain cool. So when you take a tiny Oregon town and add in an epic annual music festival, the result is a place that’s on the map for the very coolest of reasons. And this is how Jacksonville, a small town in Oregon, quietly (or loudly, in this case) became the coolest place in the Pacific Northwest.
The Britt Festivals really put the small town of Jacksonville on the map, but it is just one of the many things that makes it a special and unique place. Learn more about Jacksonville, Oregon, at the town website — and the annual Britt Music & Arts Festival here.
And if you’re looking for another effortlessly cool place to visit in The Beaver State, definitely check out Ashland, home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival *and* Ashland Independent Film Festival!
