What a GreatTime to be Poor!

The Sherwood Oregon Robin Hood Festival, Oregon's longest running small-town festival, is happening again this year. The free-to-the-public event is held every third weekend in July. Friar Tuck represented the Sherwood Historical Society before the Court of Maid Marian Wednesday evening. "The important thing is to listen for the music Robin Hood plays on his bugle horn." Tuck explained, "Robin Hood was a not-so-great swordsman. It's his musical talent that saves him."

Is the Robin Hood Festival the longest running small town festival in Oregon? Does the Historical Society or the Robin Hood Festival know that for sure?

We were assured of this by the St. Wolfgang Bavarian Guild the first year they came to get involved.

Such claims are hard to document, however, and the Historical Society is always interested in contrary evidence.
