MUSIC ...

There are three essential elements that must work in perfect harmony in order for the Ritz to deliver on its promise of a truly great sauna and shower experience ... water, fire and customer service and safety.  Learn more about how the Ritz meets these challenges.

OPERATIONS ...

Located off the busy Eight on the Oregon Country Fair path, visitors are invited to sit and rest in “Just Say Please Park” with its raised bed of flower gardens, vintage theater seats, and water sprouting tile dragon. Day and night musicians fill the air from inside the cement and tile free form Clamshell stage.  Wood carvers, painters, and metal artists continue work on the 36 foot Ritz Family Story Pole completed in 2015.  After hours, starting at 9:00 pm, catch the ride of your life in Emery’s Cosmic limo.  Please see our The Ritz page for more pictures of the saunas, showers and parks.

The Ritz Sauna & Showers provides a unique experience unlike any other.  Open for just four days in July, The Ritz entertains Oregon Country Fair family and visitors with open air and private showers, two traditional saunas, live music, drying fires and deluxe tub rooms.  Often described as the cultural heart of the Fair, The Ritz Sauna offers an elegant, natural, and safe place to rejuvenate the body and mind. Established in 1976, we have only operated for 160 days in 40 years – so don’t miss this amazing experience when visiting the Oregon Country Fair!

Off season The Ritz is transformed by weather and rising flood waters.  Our crew works year round to repair and preserve our facility and park.

ABOUT US ...

HISTORY ...

An amazing variety of art abounds in and around the Ritz.  Master craftspersons have created beautiful wooden structures and paintings.  Even the ingenious gravity fed wood fired thermo siphon loop plumbing, mechanical, and electrical systems are functional works of art.  This page highlights our annual art projects, starting with the Story Pole.

The Ritz began in 1976 with a small group of friends, a single sauna and 10 cold water showers.  This page is our gallery of old photos of the Ritz family and facilities over the years.
