Hawthorne Boulevard’s 36th Annual Street Fair

Celebrate 36 years with neighbors and friends!

Portland, Oregon: Whether you bike it, walk it or drive to it, join Hawthorne  Merchants, local non-profits and vendors for live music, excellent children’s activities, lots of fun and great food. End your summer with friends while gathering new information and/or must-have items for school, home or work.

Hawthorne Boulevard stretches from the Drawbridge on the Willamette River to the Volcano in Mt. Tabor Park. Businesses and eating establishments are located along the entire length. The Boulevard area permitted to be closed is from SE 30th Avenue to Cesar Chavez Blvd. (SE 39th). Activities extend further east to New Seasons Market, the Fernie Brae and more.  A detailed map will be available at the Information Booth on SE 34th and Hawthorne.  

Stages at SE 31st, SE 34th and SE 38th will add to the fun along with a special transportation focused area near SE 35th Place.  In addition, bike racks will be located between SE 30th and Cesar Chavez and a parking lot for vehicles is located at Central Christian Church, 1844 SE Cesar Chavez.

“Hawthorne Boulevard is one of Portland’s most popular shopping destinations,” according to Bill Levesque, HBBA President. “It’s a cultural treasure with many historic buildings and long-standing businesses such as the Bagdad Theater, Fred’s Sound of Music, JaCiva’s Chocolatiers, Presents of Mind, Imelda’s Shoes, 3 Doors Down, The Gold Door and 37th Street Salon. The area is also the financial district of inner southeast with eight banks and credit unions and other financial advisors who are located on the Boulevard.”

The HBBA Board of Directors looks forward to hosting our community for this iconic event that has progressed from a single parking lot 36 years ago to a venue that can host many thousands of our neighbors and friends.
