Celebrate North Portland 
Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony
Celebrate North Portland is an annual dinner and awards ceremony created to celebrate all of the awesome individuals, businesses, and organizations that make our corner of Portland such a great place to live and work. This event is driven by a group of dedicated community volunteers who serve on our planning team. 

Founded in 2011, this event brings together a diverse group of community members from all over the North Portland area. The main focus of the event is to honor the community members who have been selected to receive awards. However, this event also fosters opportunities for cross-neighborhood connections and networking.  

We are fiscally sponsored by the St. Johns Center for Opportunity. Our 501c3 tax exempt number is 27-224-3614.
