    Although the Oregon Food Bank is no longer running the Blues Fest, the


    OPA Empty Bowls booth will be exactly the same size and location as it has

    of the booth, advertising, pick up and return of the donations from Georgies,

    The Empty Bowls project is an excellent way to get our organization

    booth and to make a bowl or two (or three) for the sole purpose of donating


    them to Empty Bowls.

    from 10 am - 10 pm

    , with set up is July 3 from 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm


    and breakdown is July 8 from 10am-1pm.


    To be a selling artist you need to commit to three festival shifts plus one on either set up or breakdown days, and we


    ask that you donate approximately $100 of work. There is room for 12 selling artists, first come first served.
