Welcome to McMinnville!

You'll love it here.

Embrace our enviable lifestyle.

Here you'll be far from crowds and traffic, yet still have easy access to big city amenities and experience an ease of doing business. Stroll our charming, historic Main Street, recognized as the Best Main Street in the West. Surrounded by vineyards, orchards and rolling hills, McMinnville is nationally-recognized for exceptional wines, outstanding dining and remarkable scenery.

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.
