Adding an event

The purpose of Travel Portland’s online events calendar is to feature those events whose appeal is wide enough to attract out-of-area visitors to travel to Portland for overnight stays and/or to entice convention delegates to extend their stays for one or more days.

Criteria for inclusion

  • The event must be open to the public. Priority will be given to events with high visitor appeal (based on visitor inquiries and historical attendance figures) and those that distinguish the city and/or region.
  • Based on Travel Portland’s mission statement, only Portland and close-in regional events will be listed.
  • Non-visitor events, including meetings, conventions, auctions, clinics, seminars, etc. will not be included.
  • Events must be submitted at least 30 days in advance for guaranteed consideration. Events submitted less than 7 days prior to the event date will not be considered.
  • Travel Portland reserves the right to decline to list any event that conflicts with Travel Portland’s mission or values statement.
