You can always count on Portland to push the boundaries of tradition. There are so many things to do this weekend that merge that nostalgic, lived-in feeling with cutting edge ideas! Get out there and explore this weekend!

August 25th – Hamlet in Portland

Get ready for Shakespeare in the park: Portland style! Taking place atop the beautiful Mt Tabor,This rendition of Shakespeare’s Hamlet will include a cast of female-identifying and non-binary players. As many of us know, in the Elizabethan era, stage actors were always male. So, while the folks at Original Practice Shakespeare Fest uphold many of the Elizabethan theater traditions, we’re happy to see that particular rule being left in the past! Come see Hamlet, one of Shakespeare’s most quoted plays, in a beautiful wooded atmosphere and support your local players.

August 25th – Post-Apocalyptic Picnic

Summertime picnics in Portland are typically associated with blooming flowers, shady trees, and sunshine. While you will find all those things at the Post-Apocalyptic Picnic, this event is anything but typical. Sometimes, it’s hard to wait until October to get spooky, so the organizers of this unique picnic have given us an awesome outlet for some summertime strangeness. You can expect to see steampunk families, zombies and zombie hunters, and costumes from your favorite Sci-Fi films. From the outside this event may look like a wacky combination of Comic-con and Burning Man, but it’s actually a relaxing, family-friendly community gathering! Check it out at Cathedral Park, located beneath the St Johns Bridge.

August 24th – Music on Main

Music on Main is a free outdoor concert series in downtown Portland. Each weekend, a different band or artist is showcased beside the Schnitzer Concert Hall, bringing an ambiance of celebration to our city’s streets. Catch Red Baraat this weekend, a truly unique band that marries traditional North Indian Bhangra with go-go, jazz, and rock n’ roll. Hailing all the way from Brooklyn, NY, this band will fuse familiar music styles into something all its own. Get ready to dance in the streets on a beautiful August evening!
