PORTLAND:  

TRILLIUM FESTIVAL
Welcome back Spring at the 43rd Annual Trillium Festival at Tryon Creek State Natural Area. An educational event for the whole community that celebrates the season of renewal in the forest and beyond. 


PORTLAND SATURDAY MARKET

PORTLAND SWAP MEET
Hosted annually by six Portland Oregon area antique car clubs, the Portland Swap Meet is the largest auto parts swap meet on the west coast with approximately 3,500 vendor stalls and over 50,000 shoppers each April at the Portland Expo Center.


HAIRSPRAY THE BROADWAY MUSICAL
Hairspray is set in 1960s Baltimore, where dance-loving teen Tracy Turnblad auditions for a spot on “The Corny Collins Show” and wins. She becomes an overnight celebrity, a trendsetter in dance, fun, and fashion. Perhaps her new status as a teen sensation is enough to topple Corny’s reigning dance queen and bring racial integration to the show. 


PORTLAND CARS & COFFEE
Portland Cars & Coffee has been going strong since 2008. Originally laid out in a small parking lot with a group of friends getting together, we are now the largest weekly gathering of enthusiasts all year long in the PNW.
