Troutdale's First Friday Art Walk is just up the hill, and one of our favorite things... art and food, shopping and coffee, music and the occasional warming (or refreshing, as the season dictates) adult beverage. First Friday happens all year 'round, with the sole exception of January and the occasional Friday Fourth of July (which won't happen again until 2021, so all is well).
The next First Friday is May 5th... see you there!
First Friday is time to explore!
Mayor's Square will be filled with artists and artisans offering everything from soap to calligraphy to original art in the milder months (I know, I know... most of our months are milder).
Look for it on your right a couple blocks down past the arch.
Don't miss the studios at Troutdale Art Center, located on the bend just past downtown and before the bridge, "between the world and the wild". Meet the artists, wander the studios, and enjoy the work!
