It’s all happening here this fall at Expo!

November is a busy month at the Portland Expo Center – will we see you? There’s something for practically everyone.

Plan for your first trip to the snowy Cascades by attending the Portland Ski Fever & Snowboarding Show on November 4-5 where you’ll find discounts upwards of 70% off the latest in gear and equipment. Industry representatives will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate products by top manufacturers. Combined with live entertainment, drawings for ski vacations and the ever popular, Northwest’s Largest Ski Swap, the event is expected to be the best yet.

Shop for reused house wares, appliances, clothing and books at Portland’s Largest Garage Sale on Saturday, November 5. Over 250 vendors will fill Hall A and this is your chance to find treasures and collectibles at second-hand prices! Tickets are $4 or pre-register for an early bird pass for $20. Passes are limited to the first 100 registered.

The Fall RV Show returns for a long holiday weekend, November 10-13. See the latest designs and models and plan your next adventure by talking with metro-area dealers and the dozens of exhibitors representing campgrounds, recreation parks and leisure destinations across the state! The Woodworking and D.I.Y Show also runs Friday through Sunday, November 11-13, that weekend. Special appearances by Tommy MacDonald of public television’s Rough Cut with Tommy Mac, feature demonstrations by Jim Heavey of WOOD magazine and Roland Johnson of Fine Woodworking, a chance to win a limited edition Onyx Series Bandsaw, and exhibits and contests promise a fun-filled 3-day show.

Knife and gun enthusiasts will enjoy the Rose City Gun & Knife Show November 19-20, and holiday shoppers can get a jump on gift buying by attending America’s Largest Christmas Bazaar when the season kicks off the day after Thanksgiving. Covering two weekends, November 25- 27 and December 2-4, unique gifts at any price can be found throughout this holiday marketplace.
