Portland’s yearly musical festival is back and taking place July 31st-August 2nd.
The festival takes place in Happy Valley, Oregon, which is only 20 minutes away from the downtown Portland Area. Previous shows included artists such as Nickel Creek, Feist, and Dr. Dog. Each artist will perform on both days and on two different stages. What separates a festival such as Pickathon from others, is that this festival also strives on a eco-friendly environment, eliminating plastic and minimizing the use of single-use items.
Weekend admissions for adults start $270 each, while Teen weekend admission runs for $150.
From the official Pickathon site,
“Innovation has always been at the center of this process and through the years many important elements have come together; collaborating widely on yearly diverse lineups that are built on the idea of great music being the sole criteria; refining six unique performance venues designed to create juxtaposing alternate realities; trusting important decisions can be discussed and made with our online community such as maintaining a low crowd density; becoming the only large music festival to eliminate plastic and minimize single use items; recruiting the finest food and drink purveyors in the land; focusing constantly on eliminating “normal” festival hassles; enabling families to thrive; working with the Pendarvis Family to create a highly designed paradise of a festival grounds, and the list goes on.”
