The St. Johns Bizarre is a uniquely crafted celebration that kicks off the summer street fair season in Portland. Held annually on the second Saturday in May, the Bizarre brings music, crafts, and food to the crowds who traditionally attended the St. Johns Parade. After the parade, a portion of the business district in the St. Johns is closed to traffic, and filled with over 135 juried craft vendors, several stages for music, great food, and tons of games and activities. It’s an amazing community event with something for everyone. The event is free.
The Bizarre is coordinated by a large group of volunteers, all St. Johns residents who work with local businesses and the community to make the event happen. We rely on the support of local businesses, community partners, and event sponsors, without which the event would not be possible. There are always opportunities to get involved. (Interested?
