Apple season is still upon us – you have a second weekend to catch the Apple Tasting at Portland Nursery. Home movies, “killer” pumpkin beers, “Walktoberfest,” and vintage video games round out a rainy fall weekend!
After the Polish Festival and sundry Oktoberfests, this is my favorite fall event. What’s not to like? There’s Apple tasting, old fashioned cider pressing, apple desserts, cooking demonstrations, and live music.
Saturday – Sunday
If you’re into classic video games, this expo is for you. Visit the Retro Gaming Expo website for details.
What can we say? If you like pumpkin craft beer, you’re going to once again LOVE this event hosted by the Green Dragon pub. All things pumpkin, including pumpkin foodie treats, the beloved pumpkin smashing festivities, and more pumpkin beers than you can shake a stick at (well over 40 locked in so far!).
The Dragon has a permit to close SE 9th Ave down to traffic in order to make room for surplus family pumpkin fun. This will again be Portland’s biggest pumpkin party. And make sure to be there when Elysian Brewing brings its Pumpkin Roadshow and its enormous pumpkin to be tapped that is full of one of nine Elysian’s pumpkin beers. Don’t miss it!
Home Movie Day is a FREE community event that takes place each October in theaters, museums, libraries, and basements around the world. Bring in your 16mm, 8mm, and Super8 (please no video) for inspection and projection on the big screen. Trained film archivists will be on hand to answer your questions and prep your films for viewing.
“Walk anywhere, everywhere, for any reason, or for no reason at all. This is Walktober: walking fun October 6th through Halloween (the greatest walking holiday of the year).”
Inspired by Pedalpalooza, three weeks of bikey fun in Portland held every June, the Oregon Walks conceived Walktober to promote walking as a fun, healthy, ubiquitous activity in the Portland metro region.
