Built Festival

October 15 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

| $45

Join Built Oregon for their first in-person event in almost 2 years. [See COVID guidelines in the Eventbrite description]

The Main Event is usually the culmination of the Built Festival’s week-long series of events and in the past has been an all-day celebration. This year, with the ongoing and amazing support of Travel Oregon, it has been scaled down to an afternoon of amazing conversations. The event will feature fireside chats between industry founders and leaders. Each one will inspire, inform and look to spark conversations around Oregon’s unique place within the consumer product ecosystem.

As a nonprofit, Built Oregon relies on the Built Festival as one of the primary means of generating operating capital. Your patronage makes this event and future events like it possible.
