Festival of Flowers has been one of Portland’s most renowned festivals in Portland’s Living Room for 30 years. Each year, the Square works with a local artist or design firm to create a masterpiece of vibrant color utilizing nearly 20,000 flowers and other plant material.

In partnership with Portland’s own award-winning landscape architecture firm, Walker Macy, Pioneer Courthouse Square is pleased to announce this year’s Festival of Flowers design: oFISHially GORGEous.

This floral installation, comprised of nearly 20,000 flowers, ornamental grass and Douglas fir seedlings, will bring elements of the Columbia River Gorge into the city and encourage visitors to become immersed in the landscape.

oFISHially GORGEous aims to raise awareness for conservation of Oregon’s natural landscapes and the responsibility to protect these great places. The single Douglas fir tree represents the devastation of forest fires and the resiliency of the landscape to regenerate.

From June 1 – 12, visitors are invited to meander through the Gorge landscape or sit and watch the Salmon on the large amphitheater stairs migrate up river. Pathways are located to allow visitors to stroll through the path of the river, or traverse the Gorge itself. Upon completion of the Festival of Flowers all the plant material used in the design will be offered for sale to the public at the annual flower sale from June 13 – 15.
