Jan 16-17 and Jan 22-24 Celebrate the truffle by heading off to that uniquely Oregon event… the Oregon Truffle Festival!

Jan 20-24 If you’re a dog lover, you can go to the biggest dog show series in the west, the Rose City Classic at the Portland Expo Center and see some gorgeous (and well-behaved) pups!

Jan 22-24 Did someone say chocolate? Take a break from that new years resolution for a day or two at the ChocolateFest.

Feb 05-06 It’s Dungeness crab season, so it must be time for the Portland Seafood and Wine Festival!

March 03-06 Portland Oregon Women’s Film Fest will be here once again, celebrating the power of women in film.

March 12 If the Muddy Valentine run didn’t work out – or you are up for the challenge once again – head on out to the The Dirty Leprechaun 5K Mud Run!

March 13 Want to challenge yourself with a half marathon, run a 5k, 8k, or 15k? Check out the Shamrock Run!

March 19-26 Head on out to the coast and greet the whales as they swim past for Spring Whale Watching Week!

There are plenty of fun things to do around Portland and in our state throughout winter! We hope you find some fun activities and have a great season.
