Cycles, crafts, tulips, and track! No matter what you’re into there’s a little something for everyone this weekend. You can choose to get wet, or stay nice and dry, with things to see outdoors or events inside!
Motorcycle Show – April 29th-May 1st
Each year, the One Motorcycle Show (“One Moto Show”) celebrates racing, custom motorcycles and biker culture. The festival has been going strong since 2009, with thousands of motorcyclists (and moto-enthusiasts) rolling into Portland with dozens of motorcycles from around the world on display, ranging from the vintage to the strange and custom-made. The One Moto Show is the biggest show of its kind in the world, and the heart and soul of this awesome event will be the unparalleled collection of 200+ custom-built motorcycles submitted and inspired by builders around the globe – you don’t want to miss it! Get your tickets here.

From hay rides, to play structures, and 100 acres of the great outdoors, there is something for everyone! Don’t miss the chance to see the world bloom!
Crafty Wonderland – April 30th -May 1st
Founded in 2006, Crafty Wonderland is now the city’s biggest arts and crafts market, drawing hundreds of vendors and tens of thousands of visitors to the (nice and dry) Oregon Convention Center. The twice-yearly market returns in early December and May (just in time for holiday shopping and Mother’s Day, respectively!). What began as a “pure DIY” production with 40 vendors and a couple hundred shoppers, Crafty Wonderland has grown into extravaganza of creativity. Admission is FREE, and the artists at each market rotate — so even if you’ve attended a previous Crafty Wonderland, you’ll always find something new.
