You don't need to head to England to experience the genius of a Shakespearean play. Much closer to home is the Oregon Shakespeare Festival located in Ashland, Oregon. Every year at the end of October you can enjoy on average over ten of Shakespeare's plays performed in both classic and newly imagined style. Separate tickets are needed for each show which is held at one of the event campus's two indoor or one outdoor spaces.

We thought the everyone in Oregon might have been in town for the festival. We had tickets for the Odyssey and enjoyed both the theater and presentation.

Amazing festival nestled in a country setting. Definately, try the outdoor stage if you are in Ashland in the summer. The shows are first rate and very easy to understand for kids 10 and over.

The festival is a cultural icon that deserves all of our support and admiration. We were lucky enough to see three shows and each was better then the one preceding it. Find a way to visit the Shakespeare Festival. It is food for the soul!

I've been going to the Shakespeare festival at least once a year for years and fall in love all over again every time I go. We had a great time watching Beauty and the Beast with my 6 year old...it is always magical!

Wow! We flew into the Ashland airport in our small plane, hopped in a taxi and had the best 4 day weekend, ever! Great weather, great food, amazing theatrical productions and a very conveniently located hotel in a historic BnB. What was not to like?...More

I visited friends in Ashland recently who are supporting members of OSF, so they had to take me. We enjoyed "Off the Rails" which is not Shakespeare, but adapted from "Measure for Measure". It was a great treat for me. They also have free pre-show...More
