Rock The Block

Rock the Block 2016 will take place on Friday, June 3rd from 3pm to 8pm and Saturday, June 4th from 10am to 4pm at the Plaza del Sol in Gresham! We are looking for entertainers, volunteers, booth participants and more. Please email the Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center at for more information.

Rock the Block is an engaging, family-oriented community celebration. This is the Rockwood neighborhood’s annual 2-day event hosted by social service organizations, government agencies, schools, citizens and private businesses in Plaza del Sol, an open space comprising an entire city block at the heart of the neighborhood. Rock the Block shines a much-needed spotlight on the vibrant and diverse neighborhood of Rockwood for one jam-packed weekend.

This is not your average festival! This event enables neighborhood residents to enjoy safe family fun, nutritious food, access and enroll in needed services, and change their environment for the better via positive social engagement, all in one space. Rock the Block provides a forum for the community to connect to youth activity and resource providers in the area and thrive on an ongoing basis.
