The Mission of the Pearl District Business Association is to promote the Pearl District as the region’s premier destination for dining, shopping, art, and living. Our goal is to enhance the vitality of business by providing value to our members and to our community.


FAQ

Got questions about the Pints In The Pearl Festival?  We've got answers!


WILL THERE BE BEER?

Let’s start with an easy question – YES. There will be beer. Lots of beer. In order to drink you will need to purchase a PITP festival package.

Packages can be purchased ahead of time or at the festival entrances.


WILL THERE BE GLUTEN FREE BEER?

Please refer to the Featured Beers page. Each brewery is presenting its own exclusive beers. 


IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?

If you are planning on drinking beer you are required to be over 21 years of age and have purchased a beer package. Otherwise anyone can attend the festival to enjoy the live music and activities onsite.


WHERE ARE THE FESTIVAL ENTRANCES?

You can enter the festival in 1 of 3 places – Look for the tents marked “Check In”. You can find them on NW 13th and Hoyt St., NW 13th & Flanders St., or NW 13th and Davis St. There you can buy packages for beer, additional tokens or obtain a map/schedule of festival activities.


IS THIS EVENT FAMILY FRIENDLY?

Of course! There will be live music, games, picnic tables for seating, food…all sorts of stuff to keep everyone of all ages entertained.


IS THIS EVENT DOG FRIENDLY?

Dogs are allowed, but we strongly recommend that your furry friends remain at home due to the size of the crowds and the lack of dog-friendly water, food, and sanitation at the festival.


HOW DO WE PAY FOR ITEMS?

Although credit / debit cards are preferred, cash will also be accepted on site. Payment methods will differ per vendor, so it’s important to plan for both. Should you need cash, there are ATM’s widely available throughout the Pearl. 


WHERE DO WE PARK? 

You can park in and around the Pearl District. Please adhere to the City of Portland parking laws & guidelines. We HIGHLY recommend using public transportation that day – both TriMet and Portland Streetcar will be running during normal hours.  


WHAT TIME DOES THE EVENT END?

Last call for alcohol will be at 8:00pm and our headliner artist (Tony Ozier) will wrap at 9:00pm – just in time for you to head out to the Starlight Parade!
