Rose City Collector’s Market
If you love collecting antiques and knickknacks, try your luck at the Rose City Collector’s Market. Sundays on Sept. 19, Oct. 31 and Nov. 21 you can head over to the Airport Holiday Inn on NE Columbia Boulevard to see if you find any treasures.
The Museum of Contemporary Craft
The Museum of Contemporary Craft has plenty of modern art to absorb on a rainy day. Through the end of October, you can enjoy an exhibit on Ai Weiwei’s urns, and there are always plenty of pieces to admire from their permanent collection.
The Yoga Project
As much as we love doing yoga poses outdoors, a soggy child’s pose doesn’t enthrall. So next time the clouds threaten, consider signing up for an indoor yoga class at The Yoga Project in Sellwood. Among its special classes are courses for The Larger Woman – the first in Portland to cater to this underserved demographic.
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
There are plenty of concerts and performances to take in at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall this fall. The 16-Grammy-winning jazz legend Chick Corea appears with his Freedom Band on Friday, Sept. 17. Primus (Sept. 22), Harry Connick Jr. (Sept. 28) and Belle & Sebastian (Oct. 19) are among the next artists to visit Portland.
Mount Angel’s Oktoberfest
Willkommen! Oktoberfest comes early when you’re at Mount Angel’s Oktoberfest Sept. 16-19. Live music on four stages, dancing, an arts & craft show, and of course a wide variety of ethnic foods. Grab some schnitzel and join the party.
