Weird Portland United
Keeping Portland Weird in 2019 is no easy task but Weird Portland United is facing the challenge head on by gathering a sampling of the city’s weirdest for one memorable evening that is sure to go down in Rose City history. Featuring Live music by Moshow the Cat Rapper and Sweet N’ Juicy, live art by the master of cartoon cutouts, Mike Bennett, appetizers and full bar, games, door prizes and plenty of weird surprises throughout the night. Plus appearances from such Portland luminaries as Rojo the Llama, Portland Elvis, Terry Currier, Toby 'I was the baby in Labyrinth' Froud, The Unipiper, and more!
To commemorate the event, Weird Portland United will be selling limited edition prints from the historic ‘Spirit of Portland’ photoshoot with many of Portland’s most notable creative influencers, many of whom will be on hand to sign copies for attendees.
And don’t forget to bring your wallets because what is a fundraiser without a live auction!? The Weird Portland auction however has been designed from the ground up to provide you with the most uniquely Portland shopping experience of your life including original art, gifts, experiences, and memorabilia found nowhere else! Money raised at the Gala will go towards meeting the financial goals of WPU’s newest initiative, the Weird Portland Grant Program, launching in 2020 to award deserving applicants a financial boost to their own weird dreams for the city. Gala theme is ‘The Spirit of Portland’ and costumes are strongly encouraged, though not required.
