Spring in McMinnville

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Spring in the Willamette Valley often follows the old saying: “April showers bring May flowers.”  This year April was full of showers and the May flowers are already showing.  The weather is starting to warm up (long sleeves instead of full coats!) and we are planting the vegetable garden that we harvest for our guest breakfasts!  It’s an exciting time for innkeepers as well as the vineyard managers in Oregon Wine Country

15 & 16  Fri & Sat – UFO Festival – a small-town festival that started 10 years ago; any excuse for a parade!  Some come for the serious seminars and some for the aluminum foil helmets.  Check out the official website ( ) for more details and make your reservations with us soon!

22 Fri – Give A Little – a charity event for a very worthy local charity I am excited about.  Read about it in my previous post here

28 Thurs – Farmers Market – A vibrant and growing venue to get fresh produce and gifts.  Everything is produced by the seller.  If you’re in McMinnville on Thursday afternoon spend an hour or two just 3 blocks from our Inn and see what the local farms have to offer.
