PDX World Cup Fan Festival at Far Post – June 15th – July 15th
This fun event kicked off earlier this month, but considering visitors and tourists refer to Portland as “Soccer City USA,” we thought it would be nice to give you a friendly nudge about it. It’s time for World Cup Fan Fest, and Portland is celebrating by featuring an outdoor festival filled with soccer entertainment, music, viewing parties, and more. The theme is fair play and comradery, so if you would like to “play nice” and bond with other soccer fans, this event is for you.
