This is going to be a hell of a weekend. The Timbers play twice, both Friday and Sunday, and in between there is no shortage of other activities to bide your time:
Then Saturday and Sunday, September 12 and 13th, visit the grounds of St. Philip Neri Church (2408 SE 16th Avenue) to find all sorts of “organic” activities:
- Workshops and exhibits on sustainable living
- Local and healthy organic foods and beverages
- Organic beer and wine
- Kids’ activities and entertainment
- Musical entertainment: Music schedule just added! Click here or on the “Schedule” button to see the amazing bands playing at the festival this year!
The Belmont Street Fair takes place Saturday, September 12 from 10am to 5pm. Come out to close-in SE Portland to enjoy the vendors, music, and entertainment along Belmont Street. The main stage is at 34th, around which you will find clusters of vendors.
Hall of Records have also secured a booth this year. Check out their crates full of delectable, soulful vinyl treats that you’ve come to expect and crave! They will be set up right near the main stage.
The 5th annual Widmer Oktoberfest takes place Saturday, September 12th in the gated lot adjacent to the brewery at 929 N. Russell Street.
Widmer’s beers, brats, sauerkraut, and pretzels are available, but that’s where the similarities to most Oktoberfests ends.
Bands playing throughout the day include the Quick & Easy Boys, Hillstomp, The Dimes, Sneakin’ Out, and Dr. Theopolis – not a whole lot of oom-pah, and I dare say no chicken dancing. Good beer though.
