Dawson Park Concert 2016 – Soul Vaccination

It’s time for Summer Free For All!  Come out and enjoy an evening of live music or watching a fun movie in your neighborhood Dawson Park.  Portland Parks & Recreation and the Dawson Park Summer Events Committee are bringing you 3 concerts and one movie this summer.  These events are Free To The Public and are a great way to spend an evening out in the neighborhood.  Concerts start at 6:30 pm and the food vendors on site will be Po’Shines and Island Daydream Shaved Ice.  During movie night, live performances by local musicians and free popcorn begin at 6:30 pm and the movie starts at dusk.

Bring your blanket, your family and friends, your leashed dogs, and your picnic or plan to eat dinner at one of the food vendors.  We’ve put together another amazing lineup so come out and join the fun!

Concert Lineup:

  • Wednesday July 12 – Locarno – Groove-Heavy Mexican Folk
  • Wednesday July 19 – Curtis Salgado & Alan Hager Duo – Legendary Blues, R&B, Soul
  • Wednesday July 26 – Ocean 503 – R&B and Funk


  • Friday, Aug 18 – Willow (1988, PG) – Pre movie entertainment by Lauren “Lo” Steele

Even though these events are free to the public, we couldn’t do this without the support of our local sponsors as well as individual donors.  If you’d like to donate to the Dawson Park Concert fund, it’s easy!  Simply visit www.portlandpf.org/donate/ choose “SFFA Summer Concerts in Parks” from the drop down menu and type in “Dawson Park” for the specific park you’d like to support.  Of course your contribution is fully tax deductible as provided by law.

Thanks to all our 2017 sponsors!
