"Fiesta en la calle" July 29
Join us on Sunday, July 29 with “Fiesta en la calle” -- an old-fashioned block party filled with food, drink, live music and dance as artists, students, nonprofit organizations and neighborhood businesses, all come together to celebrate the vitality of our inner Southeast Portland neighborhood.
Every day, the list of artists and performers grows! Scheduled to participate are Comparsa Orgullo Morelense Cemiac dancers with their fascinating bigger-than-life costumes; the Bajo Salario Collective of musicians sharing their eclectic mix of indigenous, folkloric, ranchera music; Samuel Becerra and the other-wordly notes of a pan flute; the classically trained violin students of Laura Elena Jáuregui; the passonate dancers of Flamenco Callejero; and circus-style games of Wanderlust. A number of visual artists will be exhibiting their work, including Angela Bolaños-Osorio, Elements of Style, Karina Dale Art Studio, Shannon Eaton and Tina and Monica Harris. And the diversity of our neighborhood businesses will be on display, too, with Michelle’s Pianos wheeling out 88 keys to the street, Center Space opening its doors to a samba class, and Rocket Werks displaying custom choppers.
Join us from noon-4 p.m. on Sunday, July 29 outside El Centro Milagro (the corner of SE Stark and Sixth Avenue in Portland. The block party is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by Southeast Uplift and Southeast Examiner. See you here!
