The Alternative Stage is a free annual homegrown festival and has been an integral part of the Vernonia Friendship Jamboree since its inception in 1987.

The Jamboree, which dates back to 1956, is held the first full weekend of August each year in Vernonia, Oregon. The Alternative Stage takes place five minutes north of town on Vernonia's historic lake in front of a gigantic Concrete Structure*. The site is on the trail which connects Hillsboro with Stubb Stewart State Park, Oregon's newest State Park opening in July 2007, and Vernonia.

We provide three days of free music each year thanks to the bands, musicians, and volunteers that donate their time to the event.


*The Concrete Structure was part of the largest-in-the-world all-electrical lumber mill, most of which was burnt down for the movie "Ring of Fire".
