Portland Revels’ public event, in honor of the Summer Solstice, bookends our successful Christmas Revels performances honoring the Winter Solstice. We’ve partnered with the PSU Farmer’s Market to present a day of family activities and performance emphasizing multicultural world traditions. Since many of the seasonal folk arts traditions that Revels preserves and showcases arose in the context of the agricultural cycle of planting and harvesting and small village life, basing this new celebration in the Farmer’s Market seems like coming home. Located outdoors on the green at the South end of the Portland State University campus, bounded by Hall and College streets, and by Peter Stott and Shattuck halls on the West and East.
