Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, the tribe’s nomadic clan roamed North Amer­ica in search of a myth­i­cal place called The Fair. Leg­end had it that The Fair was mag­i­cal. That it existed in for­est glades, with sun­beams danc­ing through the trees, and breezes cross­ing the mead­ows. Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, The Fair was a kalei­do­scope of beau­ti­ful crea­tures, set­tings, and music. Every­one at The Fair lived on a diet of mush­rooms. For the Mil­len­nia, the nomads searched for The Fair as they played their music.

The Leg­end goes on to say that The Fair was guided by the spirit of Glinda Star, matri­arch of the Fam­ily, a tribe wor­shipped by all Moon­al­ice. Leg­end reports that Glinda was pow­er­ful. She was good. She had a green thumb for hemp. And she brought peo­ple together for a Fair of epic pro­por­tions. But no one in the Moon­al­ice tribe could ever find it. Until now.

The Moon­al­ice hunt for The Fair is finally over. We found it. It’s called Ore­gon Coun­try Fair. And as so often hap­pens, real­ity over­whelms the leg­end in the power of its buzz.
