Discover McMinnville Events and Things to Do with Our Event Calendar

We always have something happening in McMinnville, Oregon all year-long. You’ll find plenty of fun McMinnville events to add to your calendar for your next stay in McMinnville. Monthly events include the weekly farmers market like the Saturday Market and Art & Wine Walks along our historic Third Street in downtown. From tasty food and wine events to the second largest UFO festival in the United States complete with an alien costume parade, McMinnville’s events are just about as eclectic as our wine tasting.
