Celebrate Father’s Day with These Portland Businesses and Organizations

Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 16th, and Portland will be abuzz with summertime vibes and bustling business districts! On this day each year we honor fathers, as well as fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. This week, make Dad proud by supporting small businesses and your local business districts with your hard-earned dollars!

  • 82nd: Springwater Cart Park is one of the best food card pods in all of the city! Grab some grub and have some fun with Dad amidst 30 food carts, the Crystal Guide rock shop, TBB’s Tap House, and a beer garden with outdoor seating.
  • Beaumont: If Dad is a Phish fan, loves bluegrass and brews, Tomorrow’s Verse Taproom is a fantastic place to bring him. They host a bluegrass jam each Tuesday and other community events throughout the week.
  • Central Eastside: Scotch Lodge is a fantastic bar and restaurant that has the whiskey crowd buzzing! The low lighting, high-backed leather seats, a menu sure to get anyone drooling, and an impressive whiskey menu.
  • Foster: With the summer season nearly here, Foster Outdoor is the perfect place to get something special for Dad. Does he like being on the water? Foster Outdoor has inflatable paddleboards for purchase AND rent. Is he more of a “sit in the woods and chill” kind of dad? Maybe a new camping chair.
  • Historic Parkrose: Parkrose Hardware is much more than your average hardware store. They have a plethora of gifts, plants, clothing, and more that any parent would love!
  • Lents: The whole family will enjoy a visit to The ZED, a home to the award-winning beer from Zoiglhaus Brewing Company, a food hall of diverse cuisine brought to you by independently owned  restaurants, The Zephyr Lounge, Public Pavilion, and event center The Zenith Room

  • Midway: Whether you are looking for that special piece of jewelry, musical instrument, or power tools, All That Glitters has you covered with a great selection and good prices for Father’s Day gifts.
  • Mississippi Ave: Always ethically sourced, Paxton Gate has been offering taxidermy, butterflies, skulls, bones, fossils, crystals, and other curious treasures for over 25 years. Get Dad a gift he will never forget.
