2020 Portland Festival Cancelled

Earlier this year, we postponed the Portland Festival due to COVID-19. We have recently been notified by Louisville Metro that they are unable to issue permits for the event. Therefore, the 2020 Portland Festival and the 2020 Portland Parade are cancelled. We will miss all of your smiling faces, and hope to see all of you in 2021! Sponsors, Vendors, and Donors will have the option to donate the funds to the festival (a tax deductible 501(c)(3) organization), carry over to 2021, or receive a full refund. We will reach out to you individually over the next few weeks to ask your choice. We thank you again for your past, present, and future support of the world’s greatest neighborhood festival.

New Dates for 2020 Portland Festival


Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Portland Festival Board of Directors has voted to move the 2020 Portland Festival to the weekend of July 31st and August 1st.  If conditions have not improved before that time, or within reasonable planning limits of those dates, the 2020 Portland Festival could be rescheduled again, or canceled altogether.  It’s important to keep our traditions alive, but it’s even more important to keep our community safe.  Booth space is still available for rent, please visit www.portlandfestival.org for revised applications.  The current shutdowns have been challenging for many of our sponsors, and social distancing has made other fundraising efforts difficult.  If you would like to make a donation to the 2020 Portland Festival, you can do so at: https://checkout.square.site/pay/1dfba7fac59e4a7e89696284c1482adf
