Time to shake off the winter blues at Confluence in Reedsport
February 15, 2013 by Mark
Those in Coos Bay who are suffering cabin fever and are aged over 21 will find this weekend’s annual Confluence in Reedsport the perfect opportunity to get out and kick up their heels.
Celebrating music, seafood, wine and beer, as well as the need to get out and have some fun, the Confluence is the Reedsport area’s first festival of the New Year. The event features libations from local breweries and wineries, as well as food from several local eateries. Schooner Café will be offering a variety of homemade soups and Harbor Light will be serving lobster, chicken, and ribs. From Umpqua Aquaculture festival, attendees can enjoy oysters prepared in numerous ways.
The event will give the public a chance to try a sampling of food and drink at one convenient location while enjoying an assortment of music in a congenial atmosphere. In excess of 30 vendors filling a 160-foot tent, as well as the gymnasium entry, will provide a wide range of goods for the public to peruse. Presumably, vendors will be stocked up on handouts from the local printing company to give to patrons of the festival prior to the Confluence. These sorts of gatherings are great opportunities for marketing with printed materials.
The Reedsport Winchester Bay Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Confluence, which is to be held in the Reedsport community building and on the adjacent Winchester Avenue. Each day, musicians will entertain the crowds with live music starting at noon.
Taking place this Saturday and Sunday (February 16 & 17), the entry fee is $10 per day and parking is free.
