About Alberta Arts District
Did you know that Alberta Arts District is named after Princess Alberta? Princess Alberta was the sixth child and fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Alberta Arts District connects the Concordia, King, and Vernon neighborhoods in the Northeast quadrant of Portland. It’s lined with art galleries, restaurants, clothing boutiques and gift shops. The main street in Alberta Arts District is Alberta Street, which held its first art walk in 1997 – now known as “Last Thursday”.
This lively street fair attracts independent artists, performers, local bands, troupes of acrobats, buskers, makers and more to celebrate their art on Northeast Alberta Street. Happening on the last Thursday of each month, this arts and culture experience shouldn’t be missed. This month’s Last Thursday is January 27th, 2022 from 6pm – 9pm.
Tin Shed – One of Portland’s most popular (and most dog-friendly) brunch spots, Tin Shed was also featured on the Food Network Channel’s “Comfort and Soul”. I recommend the Everything Naughty or Everything Nice platters depending on how you are feeling that day. 😉
The Bye and Bye – Known for their vegan comfort food, The Bye and Bye also has an array of delicious cocktails.
Urdaneta – Due to rising COVID-19 cases, Urdaneta is currently only doing takeout, but an excellent option if you are craving tapas from the comfort of your own home.
