What started out as a tiny idea, became the biggest event in Troutdale, Oregon's history!...Then came the FAIRGRONDS!
Event Organizers, JC Mercer Jr and Katrina Mercer set out to produce a small family one day festival...
Thousands attended the first Oregon Bigfoot Festival in August 2017. Glenn Otto Park hosted this quirky family-fun event. Merchants reported having the best one-day event sells EVER. Food carts sold out and attendees had a blast with the Bigfoot actor provided by Ravenous Studios. Celebrity, Bigfoot Researcher, Cliff Barackman from the hit Bigfoot TV show impressed the folks that attended the conference during the festival. In addition, we drew national attention from major entertainers, nationally syndicated radio shows and TV celebrities.
Yes, we faced a few eclipse issues and other hurdles. But, even Walt Disney had a tough time with his opening.
Oregon Bigfoot Festival, LLC formed in 2018 as a result of the overwhelming success. We are honored to work with some of the worlds top leading researchers, unique merchants, artist, media and the Bigfoot community.
By 2019 we were in production of our own Bigfoot Documentary being filmed on location by Bell/Mercer Productions Directed By Jerry Bell Jr in addition we had over grown Glenn Otto Park, it was time to move the massive event to the Clackamas County Fairgrounds and make plans for the next 5 years starting in 2020. It was also time to expand into the paranormal, supernatural, cryptozoology and fiction reaching a brand new audience of believers.
