As of Tuesday, April 30, 2013
The Wasco County Board of Commissioners is holding a hearing May 1 at 2 p.m. in the PUD meeting room, 2345 River Rd., to gather public comment on a mass gathering permit application.
The application has been submitted by Peter Clark on behalf of What the Festival, a music and arts festival expected to draw as many as 5,000 people. Last year the festival had its inaugural year in the Tygh Valley area; this year organizers plan to hold it on Wolf Run Ranch, about 10 miles west of Dufur.
The festival is planned for July 25-28.
