Oregon Walkways: Lents Founders Fair
Join us Sunday, August 6th, 11:00am – 4:00pm for the second annual Oregon Walkways, this time in Lents! We’re teaming up with the Lents Neighborhood Association and Green Lents, a place-based non-profit working to promote environmental sustainability, to bring the second annual Oregon Walkways to the historic Lents neighborhood.
Oregon Walkways: Lents Founder Fair will give participants an opportunity to explore the neighborhood on foot, experiences the Green Ring, and use the streets for play as we close off streets to cars and open them up to people. The route will highlight the new NAYA Generations intergenerational community, The Lents International Farmer’s Market, Green Lents Community Tool Library and of course, the Lents Founder Fair celebration, concentrated in the SW corner of Lents park, featuring Founder Fair favorites like the Beautiful Chicken Contest and live music performances.
*Event route subject to change to accommodate street closure requirements.
This event is generously supported by Metro and the City of Portland. Community partners include Rose Community Development, Lents International Farmer’s Market, Portland Fire and Rescue Station 11, NAYA Generations, City Repair and individuals who live and work in the neighborhood. Support in creating the traffic control plan is being provided by Better Block PDX and Portland State University’s Civil & Environmental Engineering Capstone.
