With shows running from June to September, if you're heading east on I-84 you'll run into the grassy-knoll venue Edgefield, which draws big names (and crowds of about 5,000). But just as interesting as the musical lineup each summer season is the distinct opportunity the venue offers to make a day (and even a night) of it. A McMenamins’ property, the former county poor farm was renamed Edgefield in 1990 and added to the National Register of Historic Places. The whole campus is teaming with bars, eateries, quirky art, more than 100 beds, and the requisite soaking pool—plus a movie theater, golf course and did we mention a brewery, winery and distillery?! Arriving early means you can enjoy all of the aforementioned and avoid lines into the venue (and out of the parking lot if you stay the night).
