Monthly Picks | April 2015


Portland Umbrella Festival
Apr. 2nd- 5th, Various Times | Alberta Rose Theatre
This circus and comedy show with acrobats, aerialists, and clowns, plus bands and burlesque has something for the whole family; from the Family Vaudeville Review, to the Girl Circus “Witches” show, and even an adults-only Cabaret.

N. Willamette Wine Trail Weekend
Apr. 11th & 12th, 10AM - 4PM | North Willamette Valley
Spend a weekend exploring Oregon wine country while being treated to 
complimentary wine tastings, food pairings, entertainment, and hands-on activities at more than 20 participating wineries during this self-guided wine tour weekend.

Death on the Downbeat
apr. 18th, 8PM | Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
A splendid evening of classic film music and a delightfully different who-dunnit murder mystery. It seems that the most unpopular guest conductor, Maestro Bigherr, has been murdered and everyone is a suspect--including a very guilty looking orchestra.

Portland Flea
Apr. 19th, 11AM - 4PM | Union/Pine
A market dedicated to re-use that offers more than 20 local vendors of antique and repurposed furniture, vintage clothing, and collectibles. They hand select the best pickers in town and each of them has a true passion for vintage. 

Portland EARTH DAY Coalition
Apr. 25th, 10AM - 5PM | Normandale Park
The 2015 celebration is themed “We Are the Future” and will transform 
Normandale Park into a place for Portlanders to gather, laugh, and 
learn. Enjoy music, speakers, activities, and fun while celebrating 
Mama Earth!
