An Ode to Light and Dark.
Is there a special event in your future? McMinnville offers a wide variety of unique event venues sure to exceed your expectations and wow your guests. Whether you’re planning a wedding, a corporate meeting, a sporting event, or a private party in the heart of Oregon wine country, McMinnville is the perfect spot for your special occasion.
Nestled in the heart of Oregon’s wine country, on the native Kalapuya lands, you’ll find McMinnville, Oregon: a warm, inviting, and genuinely friendly destination. Whether it’s the nostalgic feeling of walking below the twinkle-light filled trees lining the historic downtown or enjoying some of the world’s best Pinot noir, you’re sure to experience the warmth of the people you’ll meet in McMinnville. Farm-to-table restaurants, shopping, wine tasting, arts and culture, and lodging experiences as welcoming as the town itself are waiting for you in McMinnville.
In a world where the phrase “farm to table” has begun to lose impact and meaning, ōkta has doubled down and propelled the idea to the next level. Focusing on micro-seasons, the restaurant sources almost all of their produce from their own farm on the ribbon ridge in the Willamette Valley.
With thirty artists on board, the second annual Metal Arts Gift Show is a perfect opportunity to shop local by supporting local artists and artisans.
Holiday shopping can be stressful, but no need to feel like a scrooge this year thanks to these decked-to-the-halls holiday markets.
