Due to renovation of Colonel Summers Park, the festival will be at a new location this year, at Creston Park on Powell Blvd. Expressing gratitude for the many gifts immigrants have brought to our American society, this 14th Annual Buddhist Festival in the Park has a focus on immigrants and the Buddhism they have brought to our shores. How may we reduce suffering and reduce reactivity? Buddhism teaches non-attachment and non-judgment. It provides skills which help foster equanimity and clarity. It’s teachings emphasize gratitude and generosity. Many Buddhist practitioners have felt the need to increase their civic engagement thanks to the current political climate. How can a Buddhist maintain an open heart and resist harmful policies of the state? Organizers of the festival felt it is important to give people the tools they are looking for, so we are offering more workshops this year. We emphasize our gratitude for the gifts of the Buddhist Triple Gems: the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. The Buddha is our teacher. Many Buddhas have brought the Dharma, or the teachings, from one land to another. Without these emigrants, we would not have the Buddhism we have today throughout the world. Nor would we have these teachings without Sangha, or the communities which share the religious practices and embody the teachings. Participating groups will have booths through the day from 11 am to 4:30 pm. From noon to 1:45 pm workshops will be offered on beginning a meditation practice and on chanting as practice. An extended workshop will also be offered on the Engaged Buddhist practice of nonviolent direct action. Another workshop is intended to offer a brief introduction to the main shared teachings of Buddhism. As usual there will be a Dharma Talk and a Discussion Panel on the theme. At 4:00, BPF Portland will host a drawing for prizes related to Buddhism. All festival attendees are eligible for one free ticket. While the Dharma talk and panel discussion occur in the festival’s main canopy, the children's canopy will be busy with story times, crafts, and other activities. Many different Portland area communities will be represented at the booths. Pure Land, Zen, Vajrayana, Vipassana, and non-sectarian groups will share news and information about their communities. This is a perfect opportunity for those curious about Buddhism to explore the possibilities available. The festival is free, and all are welcome. Organizers ask for mindfulness regarding waste: please avoid single use water bottles and do sort recyclables.

Come take a stroll through the groves of elms and recount some of the stories they would love to tell about the area’s history and architecture.

Imago Theatre’s The Reunion, Six Characters in Search of the Punch John, her husband, is continually ignored. Delores, his wife, tells all she meets that she’s dying. The soon-to-be-gone and the invisible, Carol Triffle’s motifs, are lightly cloaked in this existential comedy of bad manners at a high school reunion. Triffle’s universe questions, comments, and insults with fire-words skewering each character. All are alone and desperate for companionship yet bound by their aloneness. Live music jolts the absurdity to bubbly heights and side tracks serious moments into comedic ditches. The Reunion can’t be codified and flies like a wild aircraft ricocheting off muddy memories, regrets and the uncertainty of hope. Delores (Danielle Vermette) is an enthusiastic but reluctant pilot of her life. On her one and last night’s voyage, Delores refuses to touch down. Nonetheless, all is good when she lands smoothly, easily and unharmed (almost). The Reunion plays June 9 through June 24 at Imago Theatre, 17 SE 8th Avenue, Fridays and Saturdays @ 7:30 and one Sunday performance at 2pm on June 18. Tickets are $10-$20 pay what you will and can be

If you have never run or cycled in the Chehalem Mountain area in rural Washington and Yamhill Counties, you are in for a real treat. Miles of country roads (including 6 miles unpaved) wind through a breathtaking forested setting and past peaceful, scenic farmlands. As you head south from the start on McCormick Hill Road, take a deep breath ...or a few... in preparation for over 800 feet of elevation gain in the first two miles. After that enjoy the gorgeous scenery, rolling hills and many smaller (yet still challenging) climbs that give way to sweeping views of the Willamette Valley. Then, get psyched for the last big climb of the day… over 300 feet in the last half mile leading you to the delicious pancakes and bacon waiting for you at the finish line. If you want a break from more traditional road racing and are not afraid of the challenge this course offers then this race is for you. Remember, the feeling of conquering the hills is unbeatable!

When Ralph Lloyd began his 35-year long project to create an east Portland "downtown" in 1926, the site for his project, Holladay's Addition, was one of Portland's grandest neighborhoods. The remaining neighborhood, now known as Sullivan’s Gulch, was heavily impacted by the development of Lloyd Center but still retains some wonderful architecture.

The event, which attracted over 250 supporters last year, is hosted by Voz staff, board, and volunteers, and attendees come from ally organizations, church groups, and the large community of individuals supporting Voz’s work. The dinner is catered by ¿Por Que No?, with live music, incredible raffle prizes, and a short program with community speakers sharing our recent successes and current efforts working with day laborers and immigrants in the Portland community. With this year’s goal of $30,000 we hope to continue our efforts to unite and support one of the most vital groups of Portland, day laborers.

Over the last 20 years, the Pearl has been transformed from an outdated and tired industrial area into one of Portland’s premier residential and retail districts. A century ago, the area went through a similar transformation—from a working class housing area at the edge of a marsh to the city’s premier industrial and warehousing area. Many of Portland’s best known architects of the period designed buildings for important local and national companies. Most of these buildings remain, with their exteriors intact and new uses inside.

The soon-to-be-gone and the invisible, Carol Triffle’s motifs, are lightly cloaked in this existential comedy of bad manners at a high school reunion. Triffle’s universe questions, comments, and insults with fire-words skewering each character. All are alone and desperate for companionship yet bound by their aloneness.

Downtown Portland contains an extensive collection of classically influenced buildings, many of which are clad with glazed terra cotta, a building material that was at its height of popularity in the early 20th century. You’ll see the city’s first “skyscraper”, a bank that could have been a Greek temple and learn about several architects from this period who left an indelible impression on Portland including A.E. Doyle, the firm of Whidden and Lewis, and the Reid Brothers from San Francisco.

In addition to the well-known neighborhoods of Irvington, Ladd's Addition, or Laurelhurst, Portland is also home to the lesser known but architecturally rich neighborhoods of Piedmont and Walnut Park. These areas contain many fine examples of familiar styles such as Queen Anne and Arts & Crafts but also the less frequently seen forms of Byzantine, Jacobean and Prairie style. Along the way you’ll see the work of architects like Joseph Jacobberger, whose North Portland Branch Library has stood as a neighborhood landmark for more than a century.
