Local non-profit Good in the Hood is hosting the largest multicultural festival in the Pacific Northwest June 23-25 at Lillis Albina Park! With a focus on community building and multicultural engagement, the event will allow Portland residents to connect with each other through food and music, inspiring unity throughout the community. A parade kicks off the event on June 23rd, beginning at 11am at King Elementary School and traveling down Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Keep an eye out for us! The ReBuilding Center will have a float in the parade rolling to the musical accompaniment of Ural Thomas!
If that isn’t exciting enough, the Native American Marketplace and Salmon Bake will be taking place right here at the ReBuilding Center on Saturday, June 24th from 11am-7pm! As part of the Good in the Hood Multicultural Festival, you can enjoy the exquisite items on display from local Native American artists, jewelers and craftspeople while indulging in some baked salmon!
The ReBuilding Center stands in support of the Good in the Hood Multicultural Music, Arts and Food Festival in light of recent threats targeting the event. We believe that our community is relentless and strong-willed in the face of discrimination and that this festival is evidence of our commitment to breaking down cultural and racial barriers.
