The Good In The Hood (GITH) is a non-profit organization founded in 1990 by the parents and staff of Holy Redeemer Catholic School with a vision to raise funding for the school and to celebrate diversity. The GITH staff of volunteers has continued that tradition. It provides a viable venue to maintain ‘Unity in the Community’ (the motto) and, most importantly, the ability to provide scholarships to enrolled college students.
This annual festival is the largest of its type in the Pacific Northwest and takes place annually on the last weekend of June. It opens with a parade that travels through Northeast Portland and ends at the festival site. The festival site provides a setting where businesses can share their resources, small businesses can sell their products, and where locally and nationally renowned musicians perform their extraordinary talents.
