Waterfront Blues Festival

The festival takes place in Tom McCall Waterfront Park. The dance floor is located by the “Oregonian” Front Porch Stage at the North end of the festival. Registration packets and information may be picked up at the PBEx “Ask me where to dance” Booth will be by the “Oregonian” Front Porch Stage at the Louisiana Pavilion.


Vitalidad Movement Arts Center

Our late night venue for The Portland Blues Experience is just an easy walk across the Morrison Bridge from the festival!


Marriott Hotel

The Friday After-Hours Show (21+) with Marc Broussard & Nikki Hill is at the Marriott, right across the street from the Blues Fest.


Parking Advice

We recommend parking on the East Bank between Morrison and Salmon Street, West of MLK Ave. You can park in that area and walk over the Morrison Bridge.  After the festival walk back over the bridge to Vitalidad Movement Arts Center, on Yamhill St, west of 2nd Ave. parking is available.

Do Not Leave Bags Or Valuables In Your Car In Portland.  We are called felony flats for a reason.  Someone will happily break your window for anything that looks like a bag, a clean and organized car is the best defense.  Even if it’s not valuable to you, the broken window isn’t worth it.

We will have people at the door to let you in, watch people walking to and from their cars, and walk people to their cars.  The neighborhood has many homeless people, however we haven’t had any problems with violence or assault, everyone is pretty peaceful.
