I tried to fit in all of the Portland events that involve eating and drinking — of course — including Feast Portland and The Bite of Oregon, and we found some really cool new things to do, too. Here are some standouts:
- the Code Orange Egg Drop (Seriously: A helicopter drops 20,000 plastic Easter eggs in Brentwood City Park. Around 2000 kids partake, and it's free).
- TEDx Portland (After doing my own TEDx talk, I knew this was an inspiring event)
- the Great American Eclipse (I recommend finding a viewing spot asap. My colleagues at the tourism boards say every hotel in the path of the eclipse has pretty much been booked)
- Bike Scout Scavenger Hunt (It's just as cool as it sounds)
Again this year, the dates for the 2017 events are written right on the calendar for planning purposes:
