The Oregon Shakespeare Festival & More

The nationally acclaimed Oregon Shakespeare Festival began in 1935 and is the cornerstone of Ashland’s culture, offering classic and contemporary plays and musicals from April through the November in three theaters.

Year-round shows also play at Oregon Cabaret Theatre, Camelot Theatre, and the Ashland New Plays Festival. The National Historic Register town of Jacksonville boasts the Britt Music & Arts Festival June – September, where a stellar lineup of jazz, indie and country favorites, plus the Britt Festival Orchestra, performs in a wooded, outdoor amphitheater.


Crater Lake & Mt Ashland

Winter is one of the loveliest times to visit Irvine & Roberts. Curl up by our cozy fireplace with views of the snow-covered Cascades through our floor to ceiling windows. Apres-ski with Pinot & a farm board of local charcuterie. December holidays are particularly sweet in our little towns with Victorian Carolers in nearby Jacksonville, and lights and festivities in beautiful Ashland.
