Tower of Song Festival Approved for Saturday, May 23rd!

Last Monday, Portland's City Council voted unanimously to approve the Tower of Song Festival! The event will take place on Saturday, May 23rd, of Memorial Day Weekend. The festival is in celebration of the one-year anniversary of the Tower of Song Project, and will feature live music from noon to 8 pm. Nine bands are scheduled to perform, and we will be releasing the full line-up by the end of the week- it's going to be an amazing day of music.

The Tower of Song Festival will also play host to an Arts Fair in Congress Square, directly across from the Tower. As live music hovers and glides over the city, local artists and vendors will be selling their art, jewelery, clothing, records, and magical inventions. The event is completely free, so mosey on down to Congress Square on the 23rd for great music and awesome art.

We are currently accepting vendor applications for the Arts Fair. If you would like to participate, the forms can be downloaded at this general information page. The deadline for submission is Friday, May 1st.

Also, the Tower of Song Festival is a completely independent enterprise, receiving no business sponsorship, and started out of a love for music and Portland. However, putting on this festival isn't cheap, so if you would like to help contribute to this event, please consider donating here. If you don't have the cash to donate, but still want to help out, please email about our volunteer opportunities.

Long Live Tower of Song!
