Portland Roots Festival
Portland Roots Festival is PCRI’s first culturally specific food festival. We are promoting healthy living through healthy food choices and activities by tapping into the rich and ancient sustainable food practices of the African people. We will highlight the different yet similar avenues these ancient practices have and continue to take through the celebration of food practices of African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Afro- Latin, and African Diaspora populations of Portland, Oregon.
The event will highlight the food practices of African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Afro- Latin, and African Diaspora populations of Portland, Oregon. It will feature dozens of food vendors, micro-entrepreneurs, artists and performers, youth activities, and a key note speech from Will Allen, founder and CEO of Growing Power, Inc. Will Allen is widely considered a leading authority on urban agriculture and food policy.
