Come to our neighborhood festival to meet, eat, dance, play games, listen to music, talk about local issues, and build community. The event will take place at Tugman Park on Saturday, September 12 from 3pm to 7pm. The Southeast Neighbors Picnic/Festival is our largest outreach event of the year.

This year we’ve got live music, fun activities for kids, a raffle to support the association with great prizes from local businesses, a beer and cider garden, food carts, a garden share table, free ice cream, bike registration services from EPD, a bike-printing-press from Amazon Recreation Center (bring t-shirts), the Lane County Blood Mobile, earthquake preparedness information, and 22 tabling organizations working to improve community livability.
