Friday, February 6: The Foghorn Stringband will kick off the Sister’s Folk Festival Winter Season. This Portland string band proves that American roots music is a never-ending well of inspiration. They don’t fancy up the music to make it more modern, instead they reach into the heart of the songs, pulling out the deep emotions that made them so enduring in the first place. These mulit-instrumentalists are sure to bring warmth to the Winter season.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
The Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics Oregon athletes by jumping, walking or slowly crawling into the frigid and icy Oregon waters. The event is open to the public, and all spectators are welcome free of charge. The best way to plunge is with a team! Get your friends, family members, co-workers and boss to take the plunge with you. Plus, there are some major incentives waiting for those who raise the most money! Every participant must raise a minimum of $50 for the privilege of taking a wintry dip in an icy body of water in February and will receive a commemorative long-sleeve t-shirt and a bowl of soup, plus bragging rights!
