Built Up Festival

Sep 28 to Sep 30, 2017

Portland, OR

The things we make sustain and support who we are. Oregon is a world class leader in consumer products, and it’s time to own that message and voice.

Oregonians are crafters, innovators, and collaborators. We look to redefine product categories and lead in ways that stay true to the statewide communities from which they come. We are proud of what we create, and sometimes aggressively humble in how we promote them. 

The Built Up Festival will celebrate the makers, brands and regions that create Oregon's tapestry. The aim is to bring together companies from across a variety of  industries throughout the state for inspired and innovative programming, events, collaboration, industry resources, music & art, and — most importantly — the ability to connect. 

The goal of the event is to lay the foundation for a yearly World’s Fair type event upon which to build a modern day Lewis & Clark Exposition — one that encourages thought exchange, highlights Oregon’s competitive advantage, and establishes relationships that last for years to come.

The Built Up Festival will highlight consumer innovation through  exhibits, intimate intellectual environments, open-air performances, site-specific brand activations, tasting opportunities and collaborative presentations. Just as important, a marketplace will feature Oregon's diverse and inclusive consumer products to potential buyers and capital support.
