What is the 207 Day Scavenger Hunt?
Named after the city’s area code, 207 Day is a passion project brought to life by Portland Downtown, Portland Buy Local, & our AMAZING sponsors, including Uncommon Paws. It’s a time to celebrate what makes Portland, Portland, and the 207 Day Scavenger Hunt is designed to do just that! The list of scavenger hunt items is crammed with tasks that will weave you around Portland’s cobblestone streets, through its aisles of brick buildings, down by its wharves and over to its Eastern Promenade — so have your walking shoes ready! NOTE: Many tasks are family friendly, so be sure to bundle up the kiddos for this Portland exploration.
When is the 207 Day Scavenger Hunt?
207 Day was devised with Feb. 7th — or 2/07 — in mind. Hoping to keep the celebration going longer, Portland Downtown & Portland Buy Local chose to kick off the party the weekend before! The 207 Day Scavenger Hunt will be live Saturday, Feb. 5th through Monday, Feb. 7th.
