Portland Children’s Museum is proud to announce the first annual Building Bridges Family Music Festival, a community-building, tune-filled weekend designed to build bridges in peace and friendship through music and play. Families from the Portland metropolitan area will converge at the Museum for a weekend of live music, dancing, and interactive, hands-on experiences.

World-class entertainment from award-winning nationally touring musicians and DJ’s—as well as favorite artists from Portland’s vibrant children’s music community—will light up indoor and outdoor stages through the Museum. With dozens of performances and activities, partnerships with community organizations, and thousands of expected attendees of all ages, the festival is designed to celebrate music and childhood in a welcoming, accessible, and inclusive environment. 

Priced to be affordable, any proceeds will support the Museum’s mission to develop innovative problem-solvers through playful learning experiences that strengthen relationships between children and their world.
