Manzanita Music Festival – Dates: Late July

MusicfestNW – Dates: Late August

“Twelve years ago, Portland, Oregon was a sleepy burg, and MusicfestNW was little more than a hope and a prayer—a hope of putting on a music festival that matched the outsized ambitions of the alt-weekly that founded it and a prayer that the wheels wouldn’t fall off. Today, Portland is one of the most exciting cities on the globe. And MusicfestNW has become the third largest indoor music festival in the United States, one that a couple of years ago, Time magazine called one of 50 Authentic American Experiences.” – Submit to Perform
