With summer just around the corner, Memorial Day weekend always promises a slew of vacation-level-fun events and activities in the Rose City. In 2016, outdoor adventurers went on a city-wide scavenger hunt and on a 10k race, while less ambitious athletes participated in “the world’s shortest half-marathon” (clocking in at a whopping 528-foot distance) through downtown. Visitors also sipped on Oregon wines and sampled tasty bites at nearby vineyards, or headed to the theater for a couple of big-name shows. Music lovers weren’t disappointed, with headliners like Titus Andronicus and VÉRITÉ hitting the city for the three-day weekend.
