corn maze portland oregon weekend fun

Hello, weekend September 21-23

Hello, weekend – September is coming to an end, so there’s no denying that summer is over! Fortunately our Oregon weather is still allowing us to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Here’s some fun things to do this weekend:

The Original Maize at the Pumpkin Patch – September & October

Nothing says fall like a corn maze, right?  This is a Portland favorite on Sauvie Island – in its 20th season! Have fun navigating over two miles of twists and turns.  They provide you with “passports” which help lost maze-goers successfully complete the challenge. After you’ve solved the maze, make sure to check out the hay pyramid and cow train rides. Munch on a grass-fed burger from The Patio Café before jumping on one of the free hayrides to pick the perfect pumpkin from one of the many patches.  September open daily from 10AM-6PM.  $8/adults (13 & up); $6/children (6-12) & seniors; free for children under 5.

Free Museum Day – September 22nd

Museum Day Live is a one-day event in which participating museums across the country provide free entry to anyone presenting a Museum Day ticket. Participants are allowed to download one ticket per email address. The ticket provides free general admission on Saturday, September 22, 2018, for two people.  Locally that includes the Portland Art Museum, the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, The Oregon Historical Society and many more!

The Polish Festival  – September 22 & 23rd

The Polish festival is a family friendly event with dance groups, music bands, polka contests, and delicious Polish food and drink!  The event is held on 3900 N Failing Street between the two historic buildings of the Polish Library incorporated in 1911 and St. Stanislaus Church built in 1907, both located on N. Interstate Avenue in Portland Oregon.  Free Admission.

Fall Festival of the Arts – September 22-23rd

Enjoy the fall weather and visit Troutdale for the West Columbia Gorge community of artists, studios, workshops and galleries of the region all in one place at Glenn Otto Park.  Admission is free and there will be art, music, and food!  Above all, the Fall Festival Of The Arts is about celebration. Celebration of the community, of the art that is such an integral part of the community, of the beautiful wines and food and music that abound in the region, and, always, of the magnificent beauty of the region that feeds and informs everything.

NWSL Championship – September 22

The Portland Thorns have made it to the National Women’s Soccer League Championship game at Providence Park at 1:30 PM by defeating the Seattle Reign in the semi-finals.  Cheer on the Thorns as they try to defend their 2017 Championship Title, making them the first-ever NWSL team to secure a spot in the championship game for three consecutive years.  The Thorns will face the winner of Tuesday’s semifinal match between the North Carolina Courage and Chicago Red Stars.  Tickets for Saturday’s championship game can be purchased here.
