Portland Festival Symphony concerts in the parks will run this year from July 27 through August 18, 2013. Admission is always free for these fun outdoor events. Meet up with friends, go with your neighbors, or bring the family, and enjoy a relaxing evening of music and fine Portland weather.
Portland Festival Symphony concerts bring neighbors together, expose thousands of children to the joy and beauty of classical music, and encourage classical music lovers to seek out parks that they have not visited before. These concerts are just one more reason Portlanders love this great city.

SAVVY TIP: To avoid parking hassles at Washington Park, ride TriMet to the concert. Take MAX Blue or Red line to the Zoo, then catch the Washington Park Shuttle. Bus #63 also runs prior to the concert only. Limited parking is available in the Archery Range, about a mile up Kingston Drive from the Rose Garden toward the Oregon Zoo. TriMet’s shuttle service has been graciously extended until 9 pm to accommodate those returning to the Archery Range or the MAX station at the Zoo after the concert. Regular fares apply.
