Artistic Portland First Thursday

  • 422 Northwest 13th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Started in 1986, First Thursday in the Pearl is a district-wide celebration that occurs on the first Thursday of each and every month. Originally a gathering of art collectors and dealers, the celebration has grown to a  monthly event of over ten thousand people that includes art enthusiasts, wine aficionados and scenesters looking to see and be seen. When you combine a rich and thriving art scene with some of the best happy hour menus found in Portland, you get an event that has quickly become the place to be in Portland each month!
