Return of the St. Johns Bizarre: May 13, 2023! Volunteer or donate if you can!

The return of the St. Johns Bizarre is just weeks away, on May 13, 2023. We’re ready for you, with our dynamite lineup of musicians, artisans, makers, creators, food vendors, community groups, and more.

But we’d love to add you to the team to make this year’s — our 14th, and the first after the COVID-19 pandemic — one for the ages. Volunteer or donate if you can!

Every year, volunteer crews are what make the St. Johns Bizarre possible! The majority of our needs come on event day, Saturday, May 13, 2023, but we also need some assistance before the big day, on Thursday and Friday.

We hope you can find a time and task that suits your availability and interests. And oh, did we mention that all volunteers get a free St. Johns Bizarre Kleen Kanteen stainless steel pint cup? Thanks for helping out at the best neighborhood street festival in Portland!

And, please, if you’re able, we’d also welcome any donations you can spare to help us ensure the Bizarre remains one of the stalwart institutions that makes St. Johns so special!

Thanks, and we can’t wait to see you!
