Design Portland is all of us, made better together.

We’re the thread that weaves together the process, practice, and content of our city's diverse creative community. Because here, design is lasting. Evergreen. It is the thoughtful assembly of culture—a texture woven of people and perspectives pulled together by ambition. By action. Right here. And throughout the year. A whole made greater by the sum of its many parts.

Our Initiatives


In light of what we continue to learn about the most effective efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, we’re postponing from April 18-25 to August 1-8.
