Portland's economy is more than box stores and corporate chains - local matters a lot to us. DIY Portland is a walking tour that explores the grassroots and sustainable living that contributes to Portland’s local thinking. Along the way, we’ll meet with some of the personalities that contribute to Portland’s artisan culture, and we’ll explore key policies that helps to foster independent business.
Our two-hour walking tour includes:
- Portland's food cart block party.
- A look at Portland’s burgeoning music and literary scenes and its independent businesses.
- Tugboat Brewery, which has been in business for 20 years.
- Deadstock Coffee, a sneaker inspired coffee shop and art venue.
