Five-time Grammy award-winning bassist, singer, songwriter, and composer esperanza spalding will headline the first-annual East Portland Summer Arts Festival!  A new addition to PP&R’s Summer Free For All, the theme of this year’s arts festival is “music and expression.”

Free drop-in mini music lessons, arts activities, and more will be provided by Portland Parks & Recreation’s very own Community Music Center and Multnomah Arts Center. Big Up Music Show, and Family Fun Drumming will be a part of our daily activities, something for the entire family.
