Last Thursday on Alberta
For more Last Thursday on YouTube, check out the Friends of Last Thursday YouTube here!
Last Thursday, the monthly Alberta Arts District festival, is now in its 15th season. Artists, musicians and performers line the street from 15th through 30th Avenues, galleries hold their monthly openings and restaurants and bars hang new artwork for sale. Last Thursday is the largest art event in Portland as well as the most entertaining place to buy local art.
Last Thursday happens year round but during the peak summer months the street is closed from 6:00-9:30 to all vehicle traffic (May-September).
If you would like to vend on Last Thursday, please carefully peruse the info that’s pertinent to your specialty, so you’re perfectly prepared to wrangle this wondrous street extravaganza.
Parking can get difficult so please ride your bike or use public transportation to cut down on the congestion and we’ll see you out there!
Friends of Last Thursday is no more.
The spirit remains but the name has reverted back to the Mayor’s Office. FoLT has disbanded with the knowledge that we do so with never backing down to the Mayor’s uninformed demands.
Thank you to the vendors, supportive businesses and community members and all the City agencies we have worked with for the past three years.
Last Thursday is not managed by anyone or any group. Services (trash, security, street closure and toilets) are currently provided by the Mayor’s Office. Contact: Chad Stover.
Please carry on as we re-group and work to come back to support the artists and businesses of Last Thursday. See you on Alberta soon….
