Oregon Brewers Festival Cancels 2023 Event – May Not Return
The industry-popular Oregon Brewers Festival, which made its return last summer after missing two years because of the pandemic, is being canceled again this summer with no clear answer on if it will return or not.
Art Larrance, who founded the festival in 1988, said that in the early days, he and fellow organizer Teddy Peetz, who has been instrumental in the operation of the festival from its start, agreed they would run it until they were 75 years old, and they’re now 78.
The festival had seen attendance decline in the years even before the pandemic and last year during its first post-pandemic date the temperature hit a record 113, cut attendance significantly.
