Earthstock 2016 was a huge success. We were very happy to be visited by Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker from the Muppets, Rey from Star Wars and Lady Sif, all courtesy of the Portland Superhero Coalition. Lenny Gotter and PDX Photo Lounge were there with a photo booth (giving away more than 700 photos to kids, parents and school staff), and a great array of volunteers.


As always, we were hosted by McMennamin’s Crystal Ballroom. For the last 24 years, I have been watching this event grow and become such a great day. None of this could happen with out the great work done by Tony Nitz, Lisa Giossi and Christy Moore.

I want to thank everyone who help to make this event happen every year.

— Tim Hallrud, Earthstock director

    Today was my very first Earthstock experience. What a truly powerful experience it was! I’ve already texted a ton of my teacher friends and friends passionate about children to get them to come back with me next year. Please know that what you do and what you work to create is valuable, purposeful, and special. I am beyond fortunate to have been a part of it. Please keep me updated on anything I can do to help spread the word about Earthstock and when the next party is!
