Please join us for a Broadway Corridor Open House
The Pacific Northwest College of Art will be the venue for the next Broadway Corridor Open House on Wednesday, September 26 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Your participation is critical to the success of the Broadway Corridor project, a once-in-a-generation redevelopment opportunity in downtown Portland. The Broadway Corridor, which encompasses the downtown Portland U.S. Postal Service site, will connect the Old Town/Chinatown and Pearl District neighborhoods, with the goal to maximize community benefits, particularly to those groups that haven’t benefited from other urban projects.
El Grito Fiestas Patrias celebrates the independence of Mexico and other Latin American countries from Spain. As the Mexican President presents the nation’s traditional El Grito in Mexico City, so too will Portland commemorate Mexico’s independence at the Rose Quarter Commons.
Entry is free for all and the celebration begins at 11 a.m. and continues until 11 p.m. In addition to folkloric and Aztec dancers, live mariachi, salsa, cumbia, and pop music, there will also be traditional food and beverages, community booths with interactive and educational materials, and the Mexican tradition known as El Grito de Independencia.
