I miss summer and fall in Portland; the fantastic street fairs, festivals (Beer, French, Greek, Mexican, Polish, German, and more), and Timbers matches. When every weekend provides so many opportunities for fun that even the most obsessive festival frequenter can’t contemplate visiting them all. But then we hit November like a wall, and for the next several months all we have to “entertain” us is the holidays and pointy ball. Bah.
But now that we’ve slogged through the holidays and much of the winter rain, and pointy ball season is finally coming to an end, the Rose City festivals begin to bloom again; February is Spring for festivals:
World Forestry Center Discover Museum
Chocolate! What else do you need to know? Vendors, guest lecturers, and, oh, only The World’s Largest Truffle!?!
Portland Classical Chinese Garden
Celebrate the Year of the Rat. Activities include a plant sale, lion dancing, storytelling, and an art exhibit.
Portland International Film Festival
You know the drill, get your tickets quick!
Too many acts and different ticket prices to list them all here, but that’s why they have their own website. The schedule page has the acts, venues, and ticket prices.
Yes! I am very excited for the film festival. Although I just saw Rambo this weekend so I’m not sure anything can top that experience!
