The 4th of July is coming up, and if you don’t have plans for it, now is the time to make them. For anyone looking to make this 4th of July super special, we’ve come across the perfect event to add the fireworks — both figuratively and literally.
The See Ya Later Foundation is presenting Yamhill County’s 4th of July from 3:00 pm to 10:30 pm at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum.
While this is going to be one of the largest fireworks displays in the state, the fact that America’s Got Talent’s very own WE THREE is going to be performing live should be more than enough to get you excited about this event. Besides the incredible entertainment, you’ll find family activities as well, ensuring this event is perfect for the whole family. From a cornhole tournament to tasty food, you’ll find everything you need to celebrate America in style.
At just $5 per person for admission from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, you’ll also have the chance to check out their exhibits. They’ll also have two showings at the Museum Theater, and these are free, although RSVP is required.
Oh, and did we mention the wine? Because amidst the live music, business and sponsor booths, and discounts, this event is going to have an excellent flow of wine, beer, and cider to choose from. Even with this being the case, you might want to take a pit stop and picnic at a few wineries on your way to this event. Here are three of the best wineries to pack a picnic for as you head towards the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum:
Stoller Family Estate
Stoller Family Estate is one of the most sustainable wineries in the Pacific Northwest. They have their own estate vineyard that provides the grapes, and they use gentle traditional winemaking practices that have minimal impact on the environment.
Remy Wines is one of the few old world style wineries in the region. They have a farmhouse tasting room from 1901 that’s the equivalent of going back in time to taste their wine offerings, and their lawn is one of the best spots to picnic in the Willamette Valley.
Durant Vineyards at Red Ridge
Another one of the early winemakers, Durant Vineyards started their vineyard in 1973, offering over 40 years of excellent wine grapes. They also have the only commercial olive oil mill in Oregon, as well as a wine tasting room and expansive gardens you can check out when you visit.
