Music on Main Street

Portland’5 Centers for the Arts and the ArtBar & Bistro are proud to present the 9th annual Music on Main Street outdoor concert series. The free concerts are held in downtown Portland on Main Street, between Southwest Broadway & Park Ave., next to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

On Wednesday evenings during July and August, Portland’5 takes advantage of the lovely summer weather in Portland to present Music on Main Street, our free outdoor concert series. The concerts feature popular local musicians playing a diverse collection of music. The 2014 season features jazz, salsa, tributes to the Beatles and the Allman Brothers, Ghanaian drummers, power pop, songwriters, and bohemian caberet.  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 and chairs are available on a first come, first served basis; tables are for food and beverage patrons only.
