It's only about an hour's drive or less, south from Portland OR to Canby, where the Oregon Renaissance Faire was held in 2023 (and I'm supposing annually). The Google Gal directed me through Oregon City and south on Hwy 99E, which I was pleased to travel. Another time I hope to explore Oregon City more, especially the paved walk/bike path with views along the Willamette River.
Entry & Facilities--694 NE 4th Ave, Canby, OR 97013
I became concerned about finding appropriate parking as I slowly inched forward in a line of traffic the last leg to the fairgrounds, saw full lots along 4th St, and lots of people walking toward the Faire. So when I beheld superb disabled parking at the Main Pavilion of the Clackamas County Fairgrounds, I quickly selected it, and hoped I would be able to roll the rest of the way. That turned out to be a prudent choice, for although when I reached the field parking at the Fairgrounds around 10:30am there was still plenty of parking, and it was flat, it wasn't paved and marked for deployment of my van's ramp.

I've been in a wheelchair for 30+ years. It poses some challenges for traveling. Maybe others can benefit from my experiences.
