Our Beloved Tradition

Celebrating its 58th year, Turkey Rama is one of McMinnville’s oldest and most loved traditions! The community festival observes the historical importance of the once-thriving turkey business in the surrounding county. The turkey farms are gone, but Turkey Rama lives on!

As the face of our community has changed, so has the festival itself. Turkey Rama includes a Carnival, Street vendors and much more. Downtown you’ll find Vendors, Food Courts, Beer Gardens, Music and Entertainment, and more!

This year we are very excited that Linfield College is bringing in some fun interactive games and a hoop shoot that will be found near the 3rd and Ford Street intersection, that will be complimented with a dunk tank near by, as well as some fun McMinnville Water and Light demos to explore within the Discovery Zone.  We’re also excited to have the famous Library Bookmobile downtown – so bring down the kids and let them check it out.

Looking to be a vendor and take advantage of selling your products or have an informational booth? See application link below.
