Tomorrow you can shop ’til you drop at three different craft events happening around town.
First, the Portland Hallowe’en Bazaar is going on all day at the Memorial Coliseum. There you will find an array of local craft vendors peddling their spooky handmade wares. In addition to the one-stop Halloween shopping, there will be a costume/fashion show, Dark Horse Comics horror editors panel and Q&A, the Home Haunters’ Flea Market, a shadow puppet theater, a Hallowe’en art show, a make up and prosthetic application demo, a kid’s goblin dance party, a raffle benefiting the Multnomah Library Foundation (yay literacy) and much more. More info, including a list of vendors, can be found here.
Then, of course, there’s the Portland Craft Mafia Kickoff Show happening at the Secret Society Ballroom. Browse through over twenty vendors, grab a drink or two, “oooh” and “ahhh” over the door prizes, and welcome the new famiglia to town. More info on this event, including a list of vendors, can be found here.
Last but not least, HandmadeNW is hosting the 1st Annual SoEaPo Summer’s Last Rockin’ Outdoor Fest at Plan B. Twenty local artisans will set up shop under covered tents outside. In addition, there will be a Portland celebrity dunk tank, live music, and a BBQ going on until midnight. More info, including a list of vendors, can be found here.
