Hello, weekend! Seems like a great time of year to welcome October with some weekend fun. Get ready for food, festivals and fun music!
Beaverton Restaurant Week – September 28th – October 8th
This is the weekend gift that keeps on giving because it lasts for 10 full days. If you don’t have time to enjoy the Beaverton Restaurant Week launch today, you’ll have your chance to enjoy a dine-in experience for quite some time. Over 25 restaurants are happy to celebrate the divers and delicious independent restaurants. Each location will offer a special dish that normally isn’t on the menu. While there will be specials available, don’t worry, your favorite restaurants will still have their regular menu available!
Oregon Independent Film Festival – September 30th
The Oregon Independent Film Festival© started on September 14th, but it’s not too late to celebrate and enjoy independent filmmakers this weekend. Designed to feature fantastic new film-making, the festival aims to promote Oregon as a global film tourism destination. Check out upcoming film-makers and even some of your favorite celebrities on the big screen. The Oregon Independent Film Festival reached out to creative curators across the globe to find the best cinema treats. If you’re not enjoying a hot new film, you can enjoy the Cascade Mountain’s perks. Other fun activities include skiing, hiking and shopping.
Dragon Fest 2017 – September 30th
Free and family friendly? Yes, please! This weekend, say hello to this pint sized Renaissance Fair taking place at Columbia Park in Portland, Or. The fair will be celebrating Dragons and our fun Waldorf public events from 11am – 2pm. Come out and wear costumes as you enjoy all the fun activities. I hear there will even be a show for your entertainment.
The Music of Led Zeppelin – September 30th
If you’re looking for an out of the box experience, this will be music to your ears. The Oregon Symphony is hosting a special concert, a tribute to Led Zeppelin. They are promising a fantastic event, with the help of rock bands and vocals from Rand Jackson. Grab a ticket and get ready to rock out to classic hits like “Whole Lotta Love” and “Stairway to Heaven.”
Harvest Festival – October 1st
Just in case you’re busy on Saturday, the weekend fun will keep going through Sunday. Make sure you’re hungry for the Harvest Festival at OMSI. You’ll be able to enjoy food and drinks produced from the Pacific Northwest region. There will also be cooking demonstrations, artisan vendors, live entertainment and kid friendly activities.
