PORTLAND:  


OREGON STATE FAIR
The Oregon State Fair is held every year in August–September at the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem. The fair has been organized almost every year since 1862, showcasing Oregon crops and livestock, and also arts and food. It has many food stands and vendors as well as competitions, racing and concerts.


MONTAVILLA JAZZ FESTIVAL
Montavilla Jazz Festival features original jazz by world-class local artists. This year, the festival highlights some of Portland’s jazz scene-makers, with internationally-acclaimed drummer Alan Jones headlining the festival Sunday evening with his quartet featuring Grammy Award-winners Tivon Pennicott and Kevin Hays, joined by NYC bassist Joe Martin.


GRAND PRIX OF PORTLAND
Every fall since 2018, Portland International Raceway has hosted the celebrated open-wheel racing with the Grand Prix of Portland. Held from 1984–2007 under various names, the race is back at Portland International Raceway as the only Verizon IndyCar Series race in the Pacific Northwest.


PORTLAND CLASSIC
There’s no shortage of great moments in the history of the Portland Classic, and no one supplies those moments quite like our champions. From legends of the game to rising stars, all have put on outstanding performances to win. With the Portland Classic boasting one of the most competitive fields in the LPGA tour season, it’s anyone’s guess who will rise to the occasion in September.
