Downtown Worker Appreciation Day + Transportation Fair

Thursday, May 12, 2022 • 10:00am-12:00pm • Monument Square

Portland Downtown and Portland Buy Local are pleased to present the 2022 Downtown Worker Appreciation Day. 

This annual event will for the first time be merged with a ‘Drive Less. Do More.’ Transportation Fair.

As spring blooms in the city, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to the people who make our downtown an awesome place to live, work, & play — & also highlight the many ways they can get around downtown, without their car.

Take an early afternoon stroll to Monument Square Park for fun giveaways, a coupon booklet filled with downtown deals, yummy treats & refreshments, exciting demonstrations, and friendly faces — our treat!
