The City of Portland will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday, July 24 at 1:30 p.m. for the Cart Blocks food cart pod on S.W. Burnside and Park. Later that day, at 3 p.m., legendary local music group Pink Martini will put on a free singalong in Pioneer Courthouse Square. 

During the weekend, visitors can also participate in these free, all-ages events: 

  • Paint a mural with local youths and the Portland Street Art Alliance
  • Roller skate with the Rose City Rollers 
  • Help recreate the hit movie Princess Bride (costumes and wigs provided) 
  • Attend concerts from a variety of BIPOC and LGBTQIA artists along Waterfront Park, Pride Plaza and other locations 
  • Explore a pop-up market and fashion show at the Portland Art Museum 
  • And more! 

Oregonians' respect in science and the tireless work of essential workers on our community’s frontlines have made it possible for us to hold this event and welcome Portlanders back to the city they love.

Under the citywide Here for Portland banner, the City of Portland Action Tables, a group of roughly 300 community members dedicated to championing Portland’s future, has partnered with local businesses, artists and nonprofit organizations from around the city to put on this series of events.
