Show map
Event description
Take a twilight journey down Portland’s oldest streets to see the city’s most imaginative, historic neon gems. Steeped in architectural significance and a playful, pioneering spirit, these glowing beauties create a magical nightscape, connecting us to Portland’s sordid past, the richness of urban life, and a humble yet other-worldly, hand-made craft. On this tour, you’ll learn some local history, how neon signs work, and see beautiful vintage designs in the form of colorful, gas-filled glass tubes.
Photography and lively Q & A are encouraged. Be prepared to walk 2 miles for approximately 2 hours, with a rest stop. The tour starts just before twilight, rain or shine, as neon looks great on a rainy night.****PLEASE NOTE: Tour starting location will be disclosed to ticketholders, via email, a couple days before the event. Also please BRING I.D., because the tour ends at a bar.*****
Requests for cancellation with full refund can be made up to 24 hours prior to the tour start time, after which no refunds will be issued. Please note that the tour host reserves the right to change or cancel the tour due to obstructions, stormy weather, or insufficient reservations. Full refunds will be issued for a cancelled tour.
