Our Beloved Tradition

Celebrating its 56th 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 now includes the “World’s Largest Turkey BBQ,” a Carnival, the Turkey Trot (Run & Walk). Downtown you’ll find vendors, a Food Court and Beer Garden, the Vendor Village, Friday Night Street Dance, lots of Music and Demonstrations, and much more!  Learn more at McMinnville Chamber and McMinnville Downtown Association.
