Events July 17 through August 29

Installation of a temporary public artwork later this month will transform the Broadway Bridge as part of a multifaceted celebration culminating in an August 10 block party for the Broadway’s 100 birthday. Beginning Sunday, July 21, the first of four multicolored, hand-knitted banners, 18’ x 21’ each, will be installed–with the help of the Multnomah County Bridge Section–to hang on the outside of the draw spans of the Broadway Bridge for the piece titled Bridge for Blankets, which will be up through the month of August. The artwork, conceived and organized by local artist Tyler Mackie, uses partially donated materials (chief among them, the Cascade 220 Superwash Wool, purchased with in-kind support from Cascade Yarns and Abundant Yarn Co.), and harnesses the time and talent of roughly 150 volunteer knitters to create Portland’s largest knitted art installation to date. After the festival the banners will be washed, divided into 42 separate afghans (each one 6′ square), and donated to local warming shelters via Human Solutions and Sno-Cap.

The Bridge for Blankets project is part of this year’s PDX Bridge Festival, a string of events that kicked off last April and that leads up to a block party on August 10th from 12pm-7pm, at NW 9th and Hoyt.  This is a fitting art installation to celebrate the Broadway Bridge’s 100 year presence and what it brought and brings to the fabric of Portland.    Opening up the bridge between the music and clubs of the east side to the exotic life and associations of the west side in addition to the cuisines of both, enhanced this city’s development.  We are a better place to live because of it.

The block party will have music, dancing, displays of model bridges built by local area elementary school students, bridge tours led by Sharon Wood Wortman and Ed Wortman, a bridge art show, Radio Disney activities for children, and vendors of food, art, and crafts.  The block party is a National Night Out event, and will also include displays and other information about neighborhood safety and crime prevention. The outdoor venue is conveniently located near MAX, Portland Streetcar, bus lines, and a smart park garage.

At the August 10th event, information will also be available on the new Sharon Wood Wortman/Ed Wortman project: The Big & Awesome Bridges of Portland and Vancouver—A Book for Young Readers & Their Teachers, of which PDX Bridge Festival is a sponsor. At over 100 pages and brimming with illustrations, this book about the bridges of Portland and Vancouver is a massive undertaking, and is being developed as a text book–distributed for free–to be used as class sets for Portland Public Schools’ third grade classrooms and to Vancouver public school libraries.

The Broadway Bridge, maintained and cared for by Multnomah County, was the first bascule bridge over the Willamette River and the longest bridge of its type in the world when it opened on April 22nd, 1913. It is one of Portland and Vancouver’s three highway century bridges, along with the 2010 Hawthorne Bridge and the 2012 Steel Bridge. At river mile 11.7, the Broadway Bridge provides a unique and critical link for the businesses and neighborhoods in and near the Rose Quarter with those in and near the Pearl District. PDX Bridge Festival, a 501c3 charitable and educational organization, has celebrated the bridges that connect us all since 2010.

WHO & WHAT: PDX Bridge Festival, a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization, is calling for proposals from individuals, organizations, businesses, and government agencies for activities and events to celebrate the Broadway Bridge’s 100th birthday in 2013. Proposals should also include sources of funding, as well as strategies for achievement of the proposed event, such as timing, equipment and volunteers needed, etc.

Brunch on the Bridge!

This time around, Brunch on the Bridge will be bigger, greener, and better than ever: The event will double in size to 28,000 square feet as we cover all six spans of the Hawthorne Bridge in fresh, locally grown grass.

Our focus is on food this year, and we have designed a number of one-of-a-kind experiences to tantalize your taste buds and delight your other four senses, too.

Here’s the skinny:

The magic is on the bridge this year, as Voodoo Doughnut will unveil “The World’s Largest Box of Doughnuts” in an attempt at the Guinness World Record! Attendees will not only see the current record broken, but are encouraged to bring the doughnuts home with them. (Please take some home!)

Attendees are welcome to sample from an array of brunch-y foods (which is included in the cost of entry), purchase food from the vendor food court, or bring their own picnic baskets to the event. A PDX Bridge Festival Games Master will also return with a croquet course, cornhole, and other family fun. Look for the already-surreal ambiance to be enhanced even further through the presence of musicians and colorful performers.

PDX Bridge Festival 2011 has chosen B-Shares, a local bike delivery program serving hungry populations in need, as a charity beneficiary of the event. Working with B-shares and event sponsors, the Festival looks to triple last year’s food drive donations of 700 lbs of food to local shelters. Donation barrels will be on-hand at local Whole Foods stores, as well as at the event itself. PDX Bridge Festival encourages attendees to bring canned goods to the gate!

Art is an integral part of the Bridge Festival, and local artists will once again create one-of-a-kind picnic tables, which will be auctioned off and on display at local Whole Foods locations. Winning bidders receive entry for four and a VIP brunch basket for four – and will also take the tables home with them.

Tickets to the Brunch on the Bridge are $25 for regular entry and include a sample of Portland’s finest products from leading natural food companies in the region. 

Online ticketing has closed.

General Admission $25
Kids: Age 6 -11 $10
5 & Under Free!


Food Donations:

PLEASE BRING NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS to be collected at the entrance, which will be delivered to local food banks through B-Line, a bike delivery program serving hungry populations in need.


For the ease of our mobile vendors, our box office, merchandise booth and Mimosa garden, please bring cash. There will be lots of free food sampling, as well as a massive quantity of free doughnuts, but if you wish to purchase anything on-site we ask that you stop by the ATM before arriving at the event. As you can imagine, we are on a bridge, so the technology required to run credit card machines and ATMs is limited. We appreciate your cooperation.

Getting Here & Parking:

The event entrance will be located on the west side of the Hawthorne Bridge (Map It!). Vehicle parking is available downtown and at the east end of the bridge. Bike parking will be located near the gate to the event. Sidewalks will remain open to bicycles and pedestrians, so please be courteous to regular commuters. TriMet bus service will be re-routed for the period of the event. View the TriMet service map here to locate your best bus or MAX train route. The event entrance is in the Free Fare Rail Zone.


For your safety and the safety of other participants, please wear flat shoes. You may also go barefoot! Food will be available for sampling, and food vendors will be on hand should you wish to purchase at participating food carts. Of course, you are always welcome to bring your own picnic baskets. Please NO ALCOHOL! Mimosas will be available for $5 in our Mimosa Garden!

The esoteric, endlessly entertaining, and highly imaginative Bohemian Storytelling Tours weave together theater, storytelling, and lively bits of audience interaction–with a live musical soundtrack throughout! The talented troupe of Nathan Hoover and Jay Twenge offers two themes to celebrate this year’s PDX Bridge Festival, and we suggest trying to catch both! These guys are one of the newly discovered treasures of our city, and we cannot recommend them enough! For more information visit Bohemian Storytelling Tours website, or follow the links below to register for the tours.

Happy Birthday Hawthorne!

Presented specifically for the PDX Bridge Festival, this tour explores our favorite piece of infrastructure, sometimes referred to as Portland’s “living room bridge.” The tour starts at the base base of the Hawthorne at the fire station on the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade, travels west over the span, then leads south under the bridge on the esplanade to loop up again onto the ramp and back onto the bridge eastbound—ending back on the Esplanade.

WHEN: July 31st from 2-4pm (Pay what you will) and August 7th from 2-4pm ($15)

WHERE: This tour begins and ends on the Eastbank Esplanade, next to the Hawthorne Bridge fire station.

Tickets: $15 Available Here!

Deep Water

This tour is a two-act performance exploring humankind’s relationship with water. Specifically, this tour considers whether a river is held captive by her bridges, and examines the life of a raindrop and its journey from sky to sea, via Portland. The performers draw from literary sources that include Rudyard Kipling, David Foster Wallace, and Billy Collins. The tour runs approximately two hours, and covers about a mile and half along the downtown waterfront. Engaging and entertaining for audiences of all ages!

WHEN: August 5th from 6-8pm($15)

WHERE: Meet at the north end of Tom McCall Waterfront Park (near Steel Bridge)

Tickets: $15 Available Here!
