Celebrate Beaverton Cultural Festival, now in its fifth year, features music, dance, art, crafts, food, traditional dress and ceremonies from around the world. The annual show is produced in partnership with the City of Beaverton. Artistic, dance and musical performances will be performed on two stages. Organizations, associations and businesses representing several of the area’s cultural communities will have information on display.
The Family Triathlon -- a 50-yard swim, two-mile bike ride, and 1/3-mile run – draws eager families each year. The non-competitive event, which starts at 9 am, has a small participant fee to defray costs. Registration is now available at thprd.org.
The Classic at T-Hills showcases some of the region’s best vintage automobiles. Exhibitors pay a modest fee to benefit the Tualatin Hills Park Foundation, but viewing the vehicles is free, 8 am-3 pm. Exhibitors may register here.
The Beaverton Police Department will host its popular K-9 unit demonstration at 11 am. The THPRD Rec Mobile will host supervised athletic, artistic and educational programs all day and the Nature Mobile will provide nature and science learning opportunities, activities and games.
Additionally, kids can scale multiple climbing walls and giant inflatables, and also enjoy arts and crafts, face painting and activities from iHeart radio.
Free swimming will be available at the Aquatic Center from 1:30-3:30 pm and 4-6 pm, and youth sports activities will be ongoing throughout the day at the Athletic Center and on the soccer fields.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase from a diverse selection of local vendors whose menus reflect the international flavor of the day’s events.
