Music on Main

The Portland’5 Centers for the Arts and ArtBar & Bistro are proud to present the 12th Annual Music on Main outdoor concert series from July 5 to September 6, 2017. The free concerts are held in downtown Portland on Main Street, between Southwest Broadway & Park Avenue, next to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

On Wednesday evenings starting in July, Portland’5 takes advantage of the lovely summer weather in Portland to present the free outdoor concert series. The concerts feature popular local and regional musicians playing a diverse collection of music.

The 2017 series features Hawaiian hot jazz, second line, country swing, Talking Heads tribute, Latin/salsa, R&B, and funk. The free concerts are open to the public and run from 5pm to 7pm – tickets are not required. The ArtBar & Bistro will be serving seasonal fare and delicious libations starting at 4:30pm. Tables are reserved for food and beverage patrons and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
