Octoberfish Festival takes place in Charleston this weekend


CHARLESTON, Ore. – The annual Octoberfish Festival, a celebration of Coos culture, is taking place in Charleston this weekend.

The family event celebrates the coastal community.

There will be spirits, art, lots of music, and locally produced food, including a 25-dollar family dinner from the Tuna Guys.

Several interactive activities will be set up, including a community painting.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted.

All of the proceeds will go to the Charleston Food Pantry.

"Just really excited to see that we put out the call that we wanted people that didn't want anything in return and we came up with three stages full of people who want to give to the community. That's really inspiring that, without any financial gain, these people want to come here and give their art," says event organizer Daniel Houghtaling.

The celebration will be at the Old Charleston School off Seven Devil's Road.

The Octoberfish Festival runs from noon to 9 p.m. Saturday.
