Our annual gathering of 26,000 people for Alberta Street Fair is not possible this year. Instead of one big event, we bring you a FULL SEASON of art, music, food, shopping, and community celebration. Alberta Main Street presents —



The Summer of Alberta 2020 from June through September, is a whole season of arts, culture, food & fun to support small businesses, equity & diversity, the arts, and community on Alberta Street. Activities for all ages online & on the ground, with safe social distancing in mind. Interactive DIY activities, special promotions and contests for food, drink, shopping and more.

Alberta Main Street is working to create more space this summer to support and celebrate our Black community by featuring Black art performances and music along with pop-up and other opportunities to sell food, drinks, crafts and other goods made by those in the BIPOC community. We are also showcasing the Alberta Street Black Heritage Markers and new storefront window displays for organizations that support the BIPOC community located at 1722 NE Alberta St.

Covid-19 has created extra challenges for Portland’s busy summer season of street fairs. The Summer of Alberta is about supporting each other, coming together, and promoting all the goodness on Alberta Street.
