Reading back on this comment wall I saw a lot of interest in getting together posted back in 2010-11. Lots of good suggestions for locations too. I live in Sherwood, Oregon which is on Pacific Hwy (99w) SW of of Portland. We have several festivals every year.
The Great Sherwood Onion Festival: https://www.facebook.com/GreatOnionFestival
Robin Hood Festival (with lots of live music booked continuously for 3 days): http://www.robinhoodfestival.org/ and some art festivals.
Our Saturday Market runs all summer and they are always looking for vendors and performers: http://sherwoodmarket.blogspot.com/
In June we have the Altered Art Festival: http://www.sherwoodarts.org/content.cfm/Programs/2013-Altered-Art-F...
Sherwood also hosts one of the largest drive in car shows in the NW, Crusin Sherwood: http://cruisinsherwood.com/?page_id=1001
These all have potential for get togethers, selling, and performing. If anyone would like to attend please let me know and we can meet up. I am planning on showing at the Altered Art Festival and if I can get enough inventory together in the next 6 months, I will be selling at the Saturday Market.
I'm not doing Saturday markets or the like just yet. That is the plan for next year. I'm still trying to get settled here and find a house with a shop. I will be doing a local holiday bazaar on Nov. 17th in Sequim with the little bit of stock I have.
Hey Paul, are you referring to a NW uke group?
Are there any NW festivals coming up? Do any of you sell at Saturday markets?
P.S. You might check out the Uke group here also.
