Under the Atumn Moon

This Festival celebrates the culmination of six years of imagining, planning, designing and constructing improvements to this historic district.

The $5.35 million project has brought two new festival streets to the district on NW Flanders and Davis Streets. From Burnside to Glisan, there are new sidewalks, a new bike lane, 126 new trees with landscaped tree wells, new streetlights, public art, and 20 bronze plaques installed in sidewalks throughout the project area.

The Old Town/Chinatown 3rd and 4th Avenue Streetscape Improvements have been collaborative effort of the Old Town/Chinatown Visions Committee, neighborhood groups and business leaders to bring new vitality to Portland’s oldest and most diverse neighborhood. 

The project area contains two National Historic Registry Districts:  the New Chinatown/Japantown Historic District (designated in 1989) and a small portion of the Skidmore Old Town Historic District (designated 1975.)

The Under the Autumn Moon Festival is a two-day public festival to introduce Portland citizens to the improvements. It celebrates this multi-cultural district with non-stop music and dance, food demonstrations and food booths, a global bazaar, tours of the district, information booths including a pavilion highlighting the area’s human services providers, and free admission to the Portland Classical Chinese Garden on Sunday, October 1. 

We hope you have a wonderful time in Old Town/Chinatown and come back often!  Visit www.oldtownchinatown.biz for further details or click on the ‘more info’ link below for a schedule of festival highlights.
