The Midnight Show: bohemians, byways & bonfires

By Camille Cole, BS '78 (general social science)

During the early days of Oregon’s famous Country Fair, the Midnight Show was more than a magical conduit for pranksters and sparkles and fandangle; tofu and patchouli and drum circles; sword swallowers, fire-eaters, and magicians; or even a wedding venue. It was a stage shared by icons of the counterculture, lovers, children, and family, and those of us finding our way through.
