Event Description

Iron Tribe is hosting The City of Roses Annual Resource Festival on Saturday, July 31st from 10am. till 6pm. Pioneer Square of scenic downtown Portland, Oregon will set the stage for this yearly event. The goal of this event is to empower community and connect Portlanders to the varied existing organizations that offer resources. These resources range from housing to support for a variety of issues that Portlanders face during these difficult economic times.
Iron Tribe is partnering with Senator Chip Shield, Sisters of the Road, Transitions Projects Inc.(TPI), Dual-Diagnosis Anonymous, Gospel Mission, Multnomah County Transitions Services Unit, Better People, Street Roots, Volunteers of America (VOA) Men’s Residential Center/Women’s Residential Center, Partnership for Safety and Justice, Portland Rescue Mission, The Sunshine Division, Central City Concern, SE Works, Solutions, New Avenues for Youth, VOA Inact, Hands Across the Bridge, Ox Fest and various local community organizations, recovery support groups and businesses in this Festival including Choose Local, PGE Park/Portland Beavers, Wells Fargo and Bally Total Fitness. Commissioner Nick Fish and Senator Chip Shields have been invited to speak at this event. In promoting community, this festival will offer various family events and activities for all ages. Speakers will share story of their experience with community resources and how it has affected their lives. Local bands will be performing and an atmosphere of fun, cooperation and outreach will fill Pioneer Square.
Resource organizations that benefit men, women, and children, the homeless and transitioning ex-cons will be in attendance, as well as local businesses that offer support and services to all Portlanders. We are also holding a combined food drive during the event for the Oregon Food Bank and The Sunshine Division. It is our hope to provide a platform of sharing and cooperation during the festival to address some of the unique issues that currently affects many underserved Portlanders. Foods, beverages, and crafts will also be offered during the festival, making it a day of celebration and outreach./
