MF Mad Pride Clown Troupe at Oregon Country FairCelebrating its 40th anniversary this year is the amazing Oregon Country Fair, where tens of thousands of people head out to hundreds of acres in a rural area by Veneta, Oregon for three days of music, festing, theater, and celebration.

MindFreedom International has had a presence at the historic Oregon Country Fair 23 of its 40 years. You’ll find MindFreedom folks in the “Doors of Expression” Communications Booth in the back of the Community Village in Oregon Country Fair (inbetween Wild Edibles and 4A disability booths).

For about a decade, MindFreedom has hosted MAD PRIDE events in the middle of the Oregon Country Fair.

This year is no exception!

You are invited to participate in this year’s Oregon Country Fair skits, right in the Community Village Stage Green!

MindFreedom activists, including director David Oaks, will teach you how to screen people for normality, which is easy, because normality is never, ever found!

You are also invited to give your America’s Mad Idol Moment performance on the stage! This is like a weird talent show, but weirder.

So far we know there will be tap dancing, singing, stand up comedy, and more!

And thank you to the Patch Adams clown troupe for teaching and inspiring these skits. Patch is the honorary chair of the International Association for the Advancement of Creative Maladjustment, started by Martin Luther King, Jr.
