Delicious samosas, talented youth performers and community exhibitors, including the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization, East Portland Action Plan, Impact NW, Human Solutions and East Portland in Motion, were all highlights of the last Portland Plan Fair on Saturday, March 12 in East Portland.

 

IRCO hosted the event, which coincided with their ENGAGE workshop. ENGAGE aims to develop civic engagement and leadership capacity within the immigrant community. The class toured the fair and discussed their observations. The Economic Prosperity and Affordability strategy booth was particularly popular.

 

As with the other Portland Plan fairs, Colored Pencils Art and Culture performers entertained the crowds. On Saturday, participants enjoyed traditional Nepali dancing, Pacific Island/Hawaiian music, world chamber folk music, and an all-girl indie folk band.

 

Thanks to Meianna Bakery, Ravens Roost Café and Shalimar Café for providing tasty treats.
