Street festival season isn’t over yet! Many events are returning in 2021 after a pandemic hiatus. Check out our list of festivals for some end-of-summer fun.
One of the coolest things about getting to know Portland is exploring all the different neighborhoods, cultures and — of course — foods. You only have to walk a few blocks to feel like you are in a totally different city. A great way to get a taste of how each neighborhood and the people in them is unique is by visiting a fair. Not only do you get a chance to see the shops and taste the foods, but you can enjoy carless streets, music, vendors and lots more.
Below you’ll find a lineup of the fairs and festivals taking place in Portland and its surrounding neighborhoods in August and September.
