Community Events

Thank you for your interest in the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) Community Event program. Unfortunately, due to our current state of emergency related to Covid-19, PBOT is not issuing community event permits at this time. 

The health and safety of Portlanders is our highest priority. PBOT’s decision to temporarily suspend our community event program is based on consultation with local, state, and federal health authorities and what we know currently about the spread of Covid-19. These temporary changes also allow permitting staff to focus on supporting core essential services that keep our city moving. 

We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to resume our regularly scheduled work throughout our many permitting programs when the situation improves.   

To keep up to date on community events, and all other Portland in the Streets programs at PBOT, subscribe to our newsletter. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our staff at (503) 823-5191 or 

Our permitting staff are working remotely to help customers. Emails and voice messages are checked regularly and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. 

We have moved to the new City of Portland website
