For 25+ years, Last Thursday on Alberta Street in Portland, Oregon has been a community driven monthly arts & culture gathering every last Thursday with street closures June, July and August. Always free and all ages, Alberta Street comes alive with artists, musicians, and performers. Art galleries have opening parties and receptions. Local arts & crafts vendors sell their handmade wares.

In 2024, Kid’s Korner will be located at 30th Avenue and features Kid Adventure Studios and the Kid’s Junk Orchestra for June. July brings the Portland Puppet Musuem. And the 19th Stage presents Tahirah Memory for June, Alea Loren in July and the legendary Arietta Ward in August.

No one entity “owns”, “controls” or “produces” Last Thursdays. It is a divergent grass roots event where all are welcome to participate and promote. Art Galleries & small businesses, including music venues, restaurants & bars often host live music indoors and outside – 12 months a year.  See more info on vending.

In late Spring through September, Alberta Street Last Thursday comes alive OUTDOORS with local arts & crafts vendors, performers, music, events & other happenings. Always all ages, and always free! We don’t always know what’s planned or who will show up. The best way to experience Last Thursday is to visit the street yourself. 6PM is generally when things get started and have a hard stop at 9PM.
