The Ocean Gateway queuing lanes will be the site of the Townsquare Media Street Eats & Beats Festival on Saturday, May 16th. The Festival is scheduled to begin at noon and run until 5:00 pm. Gates open at noon.
The Festival will give patrons an opportunity to enjoy food from local and visiting food trucks, as well as beer from local breweries and live entertainment. The Good Shepard Food Bank will be the primary event beneficiary.
About 3,000 people are expected to be drawn down to the Portland waterfront. That will provide a positive financial impact to the waterfront that day.
A small stae will be set-up on the southwest side for entertainament performed by local/regional musicians according to information provided to the city. The Festival needs to be approved by the City Council at its Monday, April 27th special meeting.
