It is officially the season of fall festivals. As much as we love pumpkin patches and the scent of cinnamon, we’re taking a less traditional approach this weekend with a good blend of events that offer education, culture, and tons of FUN as we roll into October. Check it out!

Beaverton Restaurant Week – Ends October 2nd

This is the last weekend to experience unique, limited-time menu items for more than 40 restaurants in downtown Beaverton for Restaurant Week! And the Beaverton Downtown Association will host a daily drawing. All you have to do is take a picture of the chosen menu item, share it on social media, and tag #beavertonrestaurantweek. (And give a shout-out to the restaurant too.) BDA will draw a random winner each day to receive a $25 Gift Card from one of the MANY restaurants participating in this year’s event. Get more info here.

Dancing in the Square Powwow – September 30th

Be sure to visit Pioneer Square in downtown for a drum ceremony, performance, and educational series on programs and projects. The Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board (NPAIHB) staff will showcase their projects and work to celebrate its 50th anniversary. NPAIHB was founded in 1972 with the mission to eliminate health disparities and improve the quality of life of American Indians and Alaska Natives by supporting Northwest Tribes in their delivery of culturally appropriate, high-quality healthcare. Help celebrate fifty years of serving the 43 federally recognized tribes in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.

The Biggest Clothing Swap in The Northwest – October 2nd

Every year October rolls around, and you have to scramble to create a clever Halloween costume. Or, perhaps you have a million costumes you’ve stockpiled over the years, but they’ve run their distance, and you don’t want to wear them again. Or maybe you just want to find some random stuff and patch something wacky together? These are awesome reasons to check out The Biggest Clothing AND Costume Swap in the NW, hosted by Crystal Ballroom. Don’t miss out on this THREE FULL floors of swapping fun!

Portland Greek Festival – Sept. 30th – Oct 2nd

The Portland Greek Festival is celebrated as the largest Greek Festival on the west coast with more than 15,000 people attending. This cultural experience features Greek food, music, dance and shopping! The Agora – the Greek marketplace – features imported merchandise, clothing, jewelry, icons, flokati rugs and cookbooks. Among the fabulous food, exclusive cooking demonstrations, and exciting entertainment, visitors have the opportunity to also learn about Portland’s vibrant Greek community by visiting the Hellenic-American Cultural Center Museum (HACCM) located on the 2nd floor of the church hall.
