After much fun, incredible music, summer nights, close collaborations, and frosty beverages, we say ...
So long, Sundown!
For the past six years, we’ve hosted our free concert series and street fair in the parking lot of our Pearl District home. In 2015, we danced into summer with Portland Cello Project, talked forests and water with community leaders, and finished the season with handfuls of local berries and sweet melodies from Horse Feathers.
It’s been our great pleasure to share these events help build community, bring awareness to environmental issues, and support the local economy. We’ve decided to take a break from Sundown in 2016 to focus on some new and exciting projects and look forward to sharing ideas and opportunities in the near future.
We are so grateful to our local partners, volunteers, and the people who have supported this series over the years! We could not have done it without you.
Our Innovation Showcase is a lively street fair-style exhibition featuring an array of local businesses, nonprofits, and other mission-based organizations that are changing the way we live and do business in the Northwest. The series provides a platform for these organizations to share their work and create connections — all to the beat of Portland’s best independent musical acts.
Food & Drinks
Raise a glass to summer! Laughing Planet and Hot Lips Pizza will have local fare and cold frosty beverages available for sale, serving full menus inside as well as selling food and drinks outside. Come eat dinner with us or just get a beer or glass of wine to enjoy while you listen to the music.
Sundown at Ecotrust is a family-friendly event. Metro Parent / PDX Kids Calendar hosts an interactive booth for the little rockers. Expect learning activities, crafts, photo booths and more. We have fun activities for kids of all ages — bring your whole family along to Sundown.
For more than 20 years, Ecotrust has pioneered the way for economies, communities, and nature to thrive together, not apart. And we believe this new economy starts here — in our backyards, communities, cities, and regions. We see Sundown as not only a gift to the community, but also as an important way of bringing together like-minded people to work towards the future we want. Sundown is located at Ecotrust’s Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center.
