The films will be screened outdoors on a custom big screen next to the main stage at Portland Pride along with food, beverages and fun!

PORTLAND PRIDE WATERFRONT FESTIVAL

Whether you hit the waterfront on Saturday or stay after the parade to get your celebration on, you'll be among the like-minded Pride-goers doing their own thing all along Portland's Waterfront park. Businesses you know, and some you don't, will offer all the rainbow swag you can dream of, and you'll see some of the cutest puppies around (and dogs, too!). No matter who you are, you'll feel at home here.
