Heart of the Rogue Festival

From artisan eats to double gold wine - the Heart of the Rogue Festival is designed to highlight and uncover the many treasures of the town and beyond. Enjoy artisan offerings, locally prepared and sourced food  and wine, and so much more this October 14 + 15! Best of all - this festival is free and open to the public for all to enjoy!

Nestled into the arms of the Cascade mountain ranges, the beautiful Rogue Valley teems with artists, musicians, makers and growers of all types. This festival is a confluence of this community, offering you the very best of the valley in one intimate, special celebration. With many special sections of the event, you are sure to have your heart captured by the rogue.

In partnership with Rogue Valley Vintners and Rogue Valley Wine country, the street parallel to Pear Blossom Park will be lined with local wineries, as well as craft breweries and distilleries. This lovely little location is known as our Wine Country Lane - a 21+ area with ticketed entrance, a tasting wristband and logo glassware provided. Meander the valley’s craft sips, take in winemakers’ stories, and enjoy live musical performances on the Pear Blossom Stage. Just steps away under the stage is home to a lovely grassy area, which will be known as Blossom Lounge. This lounge is the perfect area to play lawn games, relax on the seating areas, enjoy your artisan eats and wine, and, of course, the incredible live music playing on stage!

From soulful ensembles to female-fronted five-pieces - the Heart of the Rogue Festival has a music lineup ready to entertain! Enjoy two main performances each day of the festival, as well as street stages placed by the wings mural and outside the parking lot, welcoming you in.

At the core, the Heart of the Rogue Festival is all about elevating and showcasing its community of makers throughout the downtown Medford corridor. If you happen to be a downtown brick and mortar who would like to offer festival-goers an incentive to visit your business during the weekend, we would love to support you by offering all festival attendees your offers via signage,  QR codes, social media support and more. Simply input your offer and we will promote you! Take advantage of thousands of people in the downtown corridor October 14 - 15, 2022!

In addition to promoting the many makers of the rogue, the Heart of the Rogue Festival is proud to partner with the Rogue Marathon and Bikes N Brews, each happening on the second day of the festival, October 15th. 

The Providence Rogue Marathon event includes a full and half marathon, a 10k and a Kids 1 mile race. You can view the parking map, or download a PDF of the full course to each race here. Race or cheer on runners at the recommended cheer spots as they race through Bear Creek, Railroad, Hawthorne Park and more. The Rogue Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier, and features incredible scenery of the fall leaves and lush parks throughout each race.

The Bikes N Brews is also on October 15th, with five unique routes with differing distances throughout the Heart of the Rogue. Each route has a fitting beer-themed name - very on brand of them - with the shortest being the Root Beer Cruiser at 4.3 miles and the longest being the Stout at 62.2 miles. All distances start and end in downtown Medford as part of the Heart of the Rogue Festival, so you're never too far away from when even more fun will begin! Choose your selected distance, and cruise through the beautiful valley like a true Oregonian.
