Welcome to McMinnville!
You'll love it here.
Once a small farming community, McMinnville has grown into a flourishing city of more than 33,000. Dedicated to the ease of doing business, we're a well-planned, thriving town in Yamhill County, in Oregon's lush Willamette Valley. We're home to the International Pinot Noir Celebration and the second largest Alien festival in the country. (Really!)
An hour from the dramatic Oregon coast or from hipster-loving Portland, you'll find plenty to do here ... strolling Third Street to shop, dine or taste; hiking, cycling or exploring local museums and festivals, or visiting beautiful Linfield College.
