87th Annual Klamath Basin Potato Festival

October 18th and 19th | Merrill, Oregon

Theme: "Potatoes, Still # 1"

Grand Marshal: The Woodhouse Family

Welcome to the 87th Annual Klamath Basin Potato Festival. Thank you for helping us celebrate our community’s past, present, and future success.
This year’s Potato Festival Theme, “Potatoes, Still #1,” illustrates how potatoes have been the lifeblood of this community since the beginning when Merrill was founded in 1890. The theme fits our grand marshals this year, the Woodhouse Family. They have been in the basin for over 100 years. The Klamath Centennial Book discusses their arrival in 1920. This fantastic festival allows us to celebrate and be thankful for all we have while remembering all the people who came before us to make it possible. It has been a great year here in Merrill. Please enjoy your time at the festival and help us celebrate the end of our harvest season.
