Rose Festival City Fair - May 24-27, May 31-June 2 & June 7-9 

It's Portland's ultimate waterfront gathering place! The Rose Festival brings an urban fair feel to downtown Portland, opening Memorial Day weekend for three consecutive weekends of fun. Funtastic carnival rides are a big highlight, and if you plan early, you can save $12.50 on an unlimited ride wristband by purchasing online at RoseFestival.org (only available through May 23!). Kids 6 and under are admitted free courtesy of Pamplin Media Group, and you'll find plenty of covered activities with Kids Zone arts, crafts and puppet shows, and classic video games in the Game-On Arcade. Fleet Week brings Navy, Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy ships to the waterfront sea wall, and the magnificent all-floral floats from the Grand Floral Parade line Naito Parkway. Each weekend has its own special features of fun!
