This year's "Homeschool Day at Oaks Park" will take place on Friday, September 11th, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.! This is held at Oaks Park in Portland, Oregon near OHSU but down by the river (7805 SE Oaks Park Way, Portland, OR 97202). Phone: 503-233-5777.
The whole park is open to homeschoolers and their families that day, and ride bracelets are discounted to $11.50 per rider.
You can find out more about Oaks Park on their website:
While one ride at the Douglas County Fair will cost you about $5 per person for a 1-2 minute ride, you'll be able to purchase a ride bracelet at Oaks Park on Sept. 11th for only $11.50. You are free to ride as many rides as you would like - or that your stomach can handle - for that price. ☺
The "Homeschool Families Only" Day is nice because it's very family-friendly: no or little smoking, inappropriate clothing, alcohol, swearing, and a lot of the things you would normally encounter at the county fair in this day and age. Oaks Park is filled with homeschooling families enjoying the day together.
There are nice picnic areas to sit and eat a meal that you've brought from home, or there are also food vendors available. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Quite a few of us here traveled up to Oaks Park over the last few years and have had a blast! :)
Note: Miniature golf, games, go carts, concessions, and Open Skate Session admission sold separately. Not valid with other offers; bracelet valid day of event only.
Also, visit the OHEN Homeschooling Resource Fair in Area 1 from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM!
