The 24th annual Festa Italiana tranforms Pioneer Courthouse Square into an Italian piazza Thursday through Saturday, August 27 through 29, 2015. Opera! Marionettes! Vino! Accordions!
This special Oregon Wine program will explore the relationship of geology, soils, and climate to wine, and discuss the development of the wine industry in our State, noting the geology of the wine regions, and show how they have meshed.
Truly the best weekend of the year, the third full weekend in September never quits. My two favorite fall festivals take place this weekend, the Oaks Park Oktoberfest and the Polish Festival, and this year we also have Feast PDX, Rheinlander’s Oktoberfest, train and streetcar events, and lots more – and weather looks delightful!
