Portland Car Free Day Fair

Come to the Fair
Come and Participate in Local International Car Free Day Activities on Sunday September 21 and Monday September 22.

In conjunction with International Car Free Day, there will be a Car Free Day Street Fair in Portland on Sunday September 21, from 2 PM to 7 PM at SE Ankeny and SE 8th. Approximately 6 city blocks will be closed to traffic. Explore the possibilities of streets for people, not cars! There will be music, art, food, childrens activities, and displays focused on alternatives to cars, such as load-carrying bicycles, and information on advocacy groups for transportation alternatives.

On Monday morning September 22, there will be two group commute rides on SE Hawthorne Boulevard from SE 39th to downtown, leaving at 7:30 AM and 8:30 AM from the Fred Meyer parking lot by the bike racks.
