Sneaker Week PDX
All Ages
More info: sneakerweekpdx.com

The third annual Sneaker Week Portland, a weeklong celebration of sneaker culture that brings together sneaker enthusiasts, industry influencers, and aspiring creative professionals from across the nation, will take place August 10-17 at various venues throughout the city, according to Sneaker Week cofounder Herbert Beauclere.

“Working with a core group of directors, this year we were able to program a series of events that help drive our mission of highlighting the diverse culture and community amongst global sneaker enthusiasts and the evolving landscape of Portland’s footwear industry and popular culture,” Beauclere said. “For 2019, Sneaker Week continues to combine Portland’s unique footwear industry with its influential community to showcase the 2019 theme, ‘Stronger Together.’ We will be elevating the individuals, brands and partners who make this event possible through collaborative and impactful experiences.”

As with past Sneaker Weeks, show organizers want to continue to educate and connect likeminded sneakerheads and enthusiasts through the core creative roots of the culture. The goal is to provide a space for the next great wave of creatives to see the city for the opportunities it provides.

Dr. Zylchov was once a world-famous scientist, known for working on top secret projects in the 1970s. Today, his old laboratories have been cleared of radiation and torn down, and it’s been years since anyone has seen the doctor.

However, recently there have been reports in East Portland of an odd man in a lab coat walking his cats, and strange smells and lights coming from a nearby building. Could it be Dr. Z? The only things known for sure are that Dr. Z has a history of risky experiments, never moved on from the 70s, and loves his cats dearly. Your mission is to enter Dr. Z’s far-out apartment and find the truth! This room is entirely new and different from our previous room, Dr. Zylchov’s laboratory.

Spring Home & Garden Show
All Ages
More info: homeshowpdx.com

The 73rd annual Portland Spring Home & Garden Show returns to the Portland Expo Center Thursday, February 20 through Sunday, February 23. Spring is the perfect time to put your home project in motion, and the Portland Spring Home & Garden is the perfect spot to find inspiration –

Expert demos + presentations

Emily Katz of Modern Macrame will be onsite demonstrating her craft. The social media influencer will bring her flair for modern design and creativity to this ancient art of knotting during a live demo. Internationally acknowledged salvage DIY expert, photo stylist and interior designer Shannon Quimby will present on Salvage DIY Home & Gardens and Friends Forever Garage Sales. Her presentations will be followed by book signings in her show booth.

Design-inspired companies like Salvage Works, Miller Paint, Cargo, City Liquidators and City Home are just some of the local favorites that will make up the Design Center, where more inspiration awaits.

Showcase Gardens

Global garden creator and founder of Treeline Designz Ifti Ahmed will create one of the nine stunning showcase gardens that serve as the cornerstone feature of the Portland Spring Home & Garden Show. Other showcase garden creators include Cadwell Landscaping, Cornerstone Outdoor, Grasstains, JP Stone, NW Outdoor Living & Landscape, Oregon Outdoor Landscaping, Oregon State University-Horticulture Club and The Wall.

Meet remodeling professionals in person

Spring is the perfect time to launch your remodeling project. While it’s a huge decision to invest the time, finances – and sometimes your sanity – to embark on the emotional rollercoaster of ripping apart your home, the long-term benefits of remodeling your current space far outweigh the hassle – and choosing the right remodeler matters. You can meet remodelers face-to-face on neutral ground and engage with them to find the perfect fit to make your vision a reality.

There’s more!

Portland Parent Magazine is back in the Kids Zone on Saturday and Sunday with activities for aspiring gardeners and homeowners. Beer, wine and spirits purveyors will be onsite sampling. Local artisans will be selling their handmade goods. And many more exhibitors and vendors – more than 300 in total – will be at the show to meet all of your home and garden needs
