Portland, OR. Organizers say that free family-friendly activities help build community. Last year thousands of people attended 59 concerts offered by Portland Parks. This summer, as usual, local artists will be featured, like Tony Starlight who will play at Brentwood Park on SE 60th on July 19th. The free concert series is a musical tradition over 110 years in the making, with something for everyone, from classical to hip-hop.

A Portland Festival Symphony concert is one of the featured events.
