North Portland, the “Peninsula”, and St. Johns in particular, is home to talented artists and a burgeoning art scene, and it’s time to celebrate the creative spirit of the neighborhood! The St. Johns ArtBurst is a weekend of art events. With these quarterly events, we hope to

1.) increase access to and appreciation of the arts; 2.) support and strengthen the artist community in St. Johns and North Portland; 3.) engage the St. Johns business community; 4.) celebrate the diverse cultural communities in North Portland and; 5.) build community by facilitating conversations and connections. If you're interested in getting involved to coordinate art events during these weekends, contact

During Friday’s Art Walk, we will pair an artist with selected St. Johns businesses to serve as mini-galleries and we’re looking for artists! As a participant in our first event, you will be a trailblazer and we will look to you to provide feedback on what worked, what didn’t, and how we can keep improving!
