Summer Concert in Glenwood Park: Friday, July 19th

Presented by East Portland Collective and Summer Free for All…

This year Glenwood Park will be the setting for a summer concert in the park, featuring the vibrant Cuban beats of the band, Ache Son! The concert starts at 6:30 PM (and music goes until 8:30); but come early to secure your spot on the lawn, and join East Portland Collective (and friends) for free family friendly activities starting at 5:30PM – all activities are free to the community

  • Face Painting by Romonsta! Romana Sena is a jill of all trades and a master of fun – she’s been an incredible part of Fall in Love with Lents 2023, as well as the Queer Winter Maker’s Market and other local neighborhood events! Face painting is free for all attendees (but tipping the artist is welcome!)
  • Giant Yard Games courtesy of Lents neighbors Marci & Travis! We appreciate when our neighbors volunteers and help out at these community events!
  • Arts & Crafts by RAD CREATIVE SPACE and Yathzi Turcot. R.A.D. Creative provides creative activities for the whole family and has facilitates creative art and design access for SE Portlanders since 2022. Yathzi Turcot is a multidisciplinary artist, teaching artist, and entrepreneur. Her work ranges from painting, photography, paper mache to digital media. Born and raised in Actopan, Hidalgo, Mexico, Yathzi has lived in the Northwest since 1999. Her biggest work is as a teaching artist, aiming to inspire and share her Mexican roots and folklore. She is also a member of IdeAL PDX collective (which had a studio in Lents briefly!).

We need your help to make this happen – lots of volunteer roles available from set-up to arts & crafts, to the community clothing closet!
