Return of the St. Johns Bizarre: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 11, 2024! Here’s everything you need to know!

The return of the St. Johns Bizarre is finally here!

Join us in downtown St. Johns from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, May 11, 2024 — and spend time with our dynamite lineup of musicians, artisans, makers, creators, food vendors, community groups, and more.

The Bizarre comes together right in the charming heart of downtown St. Johns, centered around our neighborhood’s community plaza at N. Philadelphia and N. Lombard — where you’ll also find one of our two music stages (and one of our two beer gardens).

We also close off the surrounding blocks, which we’ll fill with food trucks, artisan booths and more — more than 140 vendors and organizations in all!

Here’s everything you need to know!

Along with our Plaza Stage and Occidental Beer Garden, we’ll also have a second jam-packed stage just two blocks down, at John Street, featuring a second beer garden sponsored by StormBreaker Brewing!

Donate and volunteer — there’s still time!

Every year, volunteer crews are what make the St. Johns Bizarre possible! It’s not to late to sign up to help out before Saturday, May 13.

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!
