Art in the Park is August 9!

Join us for a North Portland tradition that is FUN, FREE, and FAMILY-FRIENDLY. When:  Saturday August 9, 3pm-8pmWhere:  Albina Green, the city park next to Cherry Sprout, 722 N. Sumner St.

This creative free-for-all features an extra special musical line up this year, beginning with a kids’ open mike from 3-4pm.  Musicians 18 and under are welcome to come and showcase their talents!  Later in the afternoon, we are proud to bring you some seriously delightful folk music from Edna Vasquez,Michael Hurley and an array of special guests.

We supply blank canvases and non-toxic paint for creative spirits of all ages to make art together!
Albina Green recently underwent some exciting renovations with the generous help of a Portland Development Commission Livability Grant and Art in the Park doubles as a celebration of the park’s revamp this year.  Changes include new edible and native landscaping, and the construction of a beautiful raised seating area that will also serve as a stage for Art in the Park and other community events in the future.Kudos to our neighbor, Anne Greenwood for her visioning which secured the grant for the park improvements and to neighborhood businesses Mountain Top Stone Masonry and EMC Landscaping for their work in the park.
