Summer 2022

We're back!
Summer Free For All is getting ready for an amazing summer of live music, performing arts, and movies under the stars. Here’s what you can look forward to!

  • Over 40 free concerts, movies, and performances during July and August at parks throughout the city.
  • The first-ever East Portland Summer Arts Festival, two days of fantastic performances at Ventura Park.
  • The return of the Washington Park Summer Festival at the Washington Park Amphitheater.

The full Summer Free For All schedule will be posted here in late Spring. Stay tuned!

Can my group host an event?
For summer 2022, we are honoring the commitments made to groups who were ready to host events in summer 2020. As such, we won’t have openings for new groups who are looking to partner with us this summer.

However, if you are interested in partnering with Summer Free For All in 2023 and beyond, we would love to hear from you NOW so we can start building a relationship. Email us at and we’ll start the conversation.
