Plus, a neighborhood organization and business exhibition. Raffle and silent auction, all items donated by local businesses (all monies raised go toward funding the picnic and other neighborhood events).

The picnic is one of the best-attended picnics in the city of Portland, usually attended by 500 plus people, usually includes city council members and/or police chiefs. This year we hope to some special guests from Portland Police (K9 officer and/or mounted patrol) and the Fire Department.

The picnic is made possible by the generous contributions of neighborhood businesses. Dozens of Kerns businesses regularly participate through donations of cash, food, or simply by attending and exhibiting. We are counting on you to help us make this the best picnic ever!
