Mecánico is a fully restored 1950's single pump gas station in Independence, Oregon. Except instead of pumping gasoline, we're serving up fresh local micro brews!
Rockin' the River 2016
Date: August 15, 2016
Time: 5:30 - 8:30pm
87 S. Main St., Independence
Mark your calendars! This will be the perfect evening to grab your family and friends and head to Mecánico for some excellent music, local microbrews and delicious BBQ! Perched atop Riverview Park in Independence, Mecánico sits at the junction of Ash Creek and the Willamette River -- where the Luckiamute Watershed Council has been working to restore the streamside ecosystem back to health. Our success in this project and other similar projects around the watershed ultimately depends on the support of the community.
The good news is that by coming to our annual Rockin' the River event, you will be directly contributing to the success of our projects! Your orders of beer donated by local Oregon Craft Brewers and your contributions will help support the work of the Luckiamute Watershed Council not only here in Independence, but throughout the entire watershed. In addition, there will be an opportunity to participate in a raffle of goods and services donated by local artisans and businesses.
By RSVPing below, you can help us and Mecánico plan the best event possible and ensure that there will be enough food for everyone! What's more, everyone who RSVPs will receive one free raffle ticket.
Don't miss the fun!
