Since 1953, Rogue River has been crowing. It was started as a clever (silly) way to let folks know that Rogue River is a town....not just a river! The contest has grown into a full weekend community event which includes a car show on Sunday. People travel long distances just to participate in this annual event in hopes of earning the famed title. No ROOSTER? No problem. The Human Crow contest is for those whom wish to personally get active. See official rules for both contests below or in the Kiwanis Rooster Crow booklet which is published each year.
Saturday begins with the Rooster Crow Run/Walk. Entries are accepted the day of the event.
At 10:00am is the Rooster Crow Parade. Businesses, Churches, social and civic groups, antique cars, tractors, adult and junior riders, youth and adult entries parade down main street for the best home town parade in Southern Oregon. Sure, it's hokey but why not! It's just a whole lot of fun. Want to be in the parade? No problem! The cost to enter is $20 which helps defer the costs for the trophies. This is small town America and no one does it better than Rogue River! After the parade is over, wander over to the concessionaires, vendor booths, food booths located in the Umpqua Bank parking lot, First street and Rooster Crow Arena. At 2:15pm is the Human Rooster Crow Contest. If you are interested in commercial or non-profit booth space, please contact the City of Rogue River at (541) 582-4401.
Rooster Crow Contest official rules:
The rules are simple. Each person can enter one rooster; the rooster must remain in the cage throughout the contest. An impartial judge is assigned, and the tallying begins at 2:45pm. No mechanical, electrical, physical or chemical stimulants or devices are allowed. Moreover, Roosters cannot be mistreated or abused. Each Rooster has 30 minutes to crow his heart out. The assigned judge keeps a tally of each cock-a-doodle-doo crowed in 30 minutes. A cash prize is given to the winner.
Human Crow Contest official rules:
Anyone can enter. People of all ages give their best crow for the microphone. Winners are selected based on crowd response. There is no entry fee for the Human Crow, just bring your best voice and let'er rip.

The Oregon Coast Music Festival (OCMF) has grown from a Coos Bay performance of Haydn music to a two-week-long annual festival that draws 5,000 to its varied concerts in several Coos Bay area locations. The OCMF had its beginnings in 1978, when Dr. Charles Heiden and his family moved to Coos Bay with the idea of encouraging local children to learn about orchestral music. Heiden, who had previously served as professor of violin at Willamette University, said he wanted to go somewhere “culturally impoverished,” to plant seeds of culture.
Held in honor of the late Joshua Guillory. Our mission is to encourage and provide an opportunity for kids and adults to be involved in and grow their love of music. The festival will be held Saturday the 24th and will include a music session for kids, live music, food, a beer garden for adults, various music related booths, and a special guest.
Festival goers will enjoy three full days of original music, an artisans’ market, plus delicious gourmet vegetarian meals and snacks.
The festival also includes a Healing Sanctuary, an Intuitive Arts Pavilion, Yoga, Ecstatic Dance, Workshops, The Goddess Temple, and late night music in both the Casbah and the Community Room. This is a family friendly event where children will enjoy Kid Village, with all kinds of fun activities.
The stunning Jackson WellSprings Resort offers a hot mineral soaking pool, full size swimming pool, sauna, and steam bath, which will be available late into the night.** Limited number of camping passes available.
