Oregon Food Bank's Hallmark Event

Oregon Food Bank

Oregon Food Bank has produced the Waterfront Blues Festival since 1988 to raise necessary funds and awareness to fight hunger in Oregon and Southwest Washington.  This Portland hallmark event has become a treasured tradition for locals and visitors alike. 

The Waterfront Blues Festival is Oregon Food Bank’s largest fundraising event -- thanks to our sponsors, our longtime attendees and the contributions of more than 2,000 volunteers each year.  With your dedication to this unique festival and our ever-important cause, we are able to help 1 in 5 of our neighbors who face hunger.

The 2014 Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, presented by First Tech Federal Credit Union, raised $1,114,004 through donations at the gate, as well as purchases of special passes and DME blues cruise tickets, exceeding the festival’s $1 million goal. 

Thank you for supporting Oregon Food Bank!  We look forward to seeing you this July as we all rally to end hunger through this 4-day festival and celebrate a 4th of July Blues weekend tradition.
