Montavilla Street Fair Returns July 31 to SE Stark Street After Two Year Hiatus
Montavilla Street Fair will bring 120+ local arts, crafts, food and retail vendors along with community organizations, live music and family activities to Historic Downtown Montavilla on Sunday July 31, 2022.
PORTLAND, OR—Today, the Montavilla/East Tabor Business Association (METBA) announced the return of the Montavilla Street Fair after a two-year hiatus. The family-friendly community celebration (established in 2011) will occur on Sunday, July 31, 2022 in the historic Downtown Montavilla area.
In 2019, organizers estimated that 15,000 people attended the Montavilla Street Fair making it one of the largest street fairs in all of Portland and the single largest one-day event in East County. Organizers expect at least 10,000 to attend this year.
“I am thrilled to see the Montavilla Street Fair return after a two year hiatus. This street fair has always been one of my favorites because it has one of the most invested groups of volunteers of any business district event. People love Montavilla and their neighbors and it really shows. Events like these make the City shine and are so important to keeping Portland vibrant and unique.”
– Katie Meyer, former manager of the Montavilla Street Fair, current Co-Chair of the Mayor’s Events Action Table and Chief of Staff to Commissioner Mingus Mapps.

Organizers have secured permits from the City of Portland to close down SE Stark Street between SE 76th and SE 82nd Avenues for the 9th Annual Montavilla Street Fair, and anticipate that more than 120 vendors will be present at the event selling food and drink, art, hand crafts, clothing, as well as marketing local products and services. As in previous years, the fair corresponds with the Montavilla Farmers Market, adding an additional layer of fun and activity.
“Montavilla is an amazing community,” adds METBA President Neil Mattson. “Our residents and businesses are stepping up in a big way to support the return of community events in 2022. The Montavilla Street Fair would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors and volunteers.”
Music will occur on two stages offering a diverse mix of local Portland music. Street Fair-goers can find day-of-event updates, the full music line up including performance times at metba.org which will be posted at a later date.
