Gresham Arts Festival

  • Third weekend in July
    Historic Downtown Gresham

    The annual Gresham Arts Festival features "Look at that!" art, music, food and fun, turning the city's historic downtown into a giant art gallery. 

    2020 Gresham Arts Festival update

    To our Gresham community,

    As many of you know, Governor Brown has announced that no events or festivals can take place in Oregon through September; many regional summer events have already been canceled. As a result, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Gresham Arts Festival. Our priority is to ensure the safety of everyone in our community, and this popular event typically attracts thousands of attendees. While this decision saddens us, as we truly love bringing the community together to celebrate art, the health and safety of our residents must come first during this unprecedented time.

    We encourage you to continue to support one another, your local businesses and artisans during this challenging time. Shop local when you safely can. Help when and where you can. Keep the creativity flowing through music and art in your own homes.

    If you want to re-connect with a local artist you have met from past Gresham Arts Festivals, please email

    We are already planning for 2021 and look forward to the day when we can once again come together safely and celebrate this amazing community. Until then, stay safe, and stay strong, Gresham.
