The Good in the Hood Music and Food festival is the largest multi-cultural festival in the Pacific NW. This three-day music festival opens with a community parade that travels through Northeast Portland and ends at Lillis-Albina Park.
The Good in the Hood festival is a community event that is staffed by community volunteers and funded by local businesses and organization sponsorships.
The Good in the Hood Multicultural Music & Food Festival has become a historical annual event spearheading neighborhoods throughout Portland to engage in the momentum of our city as a whole in its celebration and the defining of Neighborhood. Held annually the last weekend in June, its birth revealed a recognition and celebration of wealth within the neighborhoods we reside. Holy Redeemer Catholic School was the vision that ignited the now celebrated Good in the Hood Multicultural Music & Food Festival. For most of the years celebrating this event, Lillis Albina Park has carried on this vision to capture audiences from the North/Northeast community as well as communities throughout Oregon and Washington. Last year we reached out to over 30,000 residents living within our Northeast Coalitions designated neighborhoods which many enjoyed two days of fun, music, food and festivities.
This year’s festival is scheduled for June 26-28. 2020 celebration is cancelled but save the dates June 25-27, 2021 for next year’s celebration. For more information, schedule and vendor or volunteer opportunities go to Goodnthehood.org.
