FALL FUN IN THE PDX
Travel Tips for Portland Visitors | Fall/Winter 2016
Plan your next visit to Portland for the fall or into the winter and experience a wide range of excellent things to do and places to see – the event and festival lineup will also yield memorable adventures. From downtown Portland to the charming city of Salem, you’ll find this region to be as welcoming as ever during the fall and winter.
One of the premier attractions found in the PDX is the Moda Center. Originally known as the Rose Garden, the Moda Center is home to NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers, and throughout the fall, it’ll also host a number of top musical acts. The Trail Blazers kick off their season in October and play through May, and be sure you’re in town on October 13th to see Maroon 5 perform live starting at 7:30 p.m.
The rock ‘n’ roll continues on November 2nd when Five Finger Death Punch comes to the Moda Center at 6 p.m. – they’ll be joined by Shinedown and special guests Sixx A.M. If you lean more towards the ha-ha’s than the guitar solo’s, be sure to see Amy Schumer live on stage at the Moda Center on December 1st starting at 8 p.m. The drive in to the Moda Center from nearby suburbs like Tigard and Forest Grove is short.
Don’t pass on this year’s H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. Held at the iconic Hollywood Theatre in Portland, the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival takes place from October 7th to 9th, will feature Guest of Honor Charles M. Stross, and a wide range of eclectic films.
You’ll want to visit Montgomery Park in late November for the annual Wild Arts Festival, one of Portland’s premier art events. Presented by the Audubon Society of Portland, the Wild Arts Festival takes place on November 19th and 20th, and is its 36th year.
In Salem, the fall and winter, sports fans are squarely focused on the Willamette University Bearcats football team. The Bearcats play their first home game on September 10th against the College of Idaho, and play 3 other home games this fall culminating with a matchup against George Fox University on November 12th. Make the drive in from nearby Woodburn and visit McCulloch Stadium, home field for the Bearcats.
