Downtown Tigard Art Walk | May 31-June 2
This event invites artists out of their studios, museums and galleries and into downtown Tigard for an art-themed event. Along the art walk, you’ll see all sorts of artistic mediums: painters, illustrators, photographers, metalsmiths, jewelers, potters, sculptors, musicians, actors and dancers. Join local artists and businesses for a weekend of art in downtown Tigard. Shop, dine, stroll and explore the arts – street side.

Explore backyard beauty and discover “Sunday in the Garden” when Friends of Historic Forest Grove hosts its Annual Garden Tour. Six beautiful gardens will be on tour, stretching from historic Old Town Forest Grove to the modern Forest Gale Heights neighborhood. Each of the gardens will take you back to easy-going summer days by featuring displays of vintage board games and lawn games.

Hillsboro First Tuesday Art Walk | June 4 | 5-8 p.m.
Leisurely walk through downtown Hillsboro, taking in the area’s great art scene. Galleries and stores will keep their doors open into the evening for art lovers with snacks, wine and displays from local artists.
