Pickathon

Music Festival
Happy Valley, OR

Established in 1998, Pickathon is an independent, all-age music festival hosted on Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, OR, just 30 minutes outside of Downtown Portland. Taking place over the course of three days in early August, attendees enjoy performances on immersive, artistically-designed stages by some of the best new and established musicians from around the world spanning the genres of indie rock, folk, experimental, electronic, and beyond. Considered a leader in sustainability practices, Pickathon works with PSU architecture students on diversion design for one of its stages and has reduced festival waste by working with Kleen Kanteen to offer collectible steel tumblers in place of disposable cups, and by switching from disposable plates and utensils to reusable bamboo. Visitors of Pickathon enjoy a magical weekend of music discovery, wellness activities including yoga and massage, as well as some of the best food, beer and wine the region has to offer, all set against the beautiful backdrop of the Pacific Northwest.
