Tell me more about the fest


Once upon a time, a seasoned Eugene community member had a vision. “Let’s have a celebration! And let’s make it free and for all ages! And let’s give back to a local non-profit! And let’s highlight all the great things in the community!” With the generous support of community partners, volunteers and busy worker bees, this vision became reality in 2018 with the inaugural Market Fest. Over 25,000 community members attended and enjoyed live music, local culinary genius, interactive art, VW buses, delicious beverages and heaps of fun all while a percentage of food & beverage sales went in support of local non-profit 15th Night.

market fest gives back

Although Market Fest is a free community festival, it is important that not only are we providing an amazingly fun celebration for all to enjoy, but that we give back to a local non-profit. We do this with the help of our sponsors, incredible vendors donating a percentage of their sales to this deserving entity, as well as raffles/auctions at the event. Be sure to visit the Cornerstone Community Housing booth at the festival to learn more about their great work for our community.
