PBOT invites you to activate a parking space on April 14

Park(ing) Day + Design Week Portland 2018

It's not too late to participate!

Permit cost is $0 for your installation!

Applications due on Wednesday, April 11.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and Design Week Portland (DWP) invite you to submit your Park(ing) Day application for a special only-in-Portland "Design Week Portland+Park(ing) Day 2018" event!

Saturday, April 14 is Design Week Portland's Opening Day, kicking-off a one week festival of hundreds of design events and open houses located throughout Portland (many are free!).

DWP Opening Day is at Custom Blocks (in central east Portland), and we are inviting you to submit your application to reserve your parking space at the Custom Blocks complex to showcase your installation during the DWP festivities.

This special Park(ing) Day event is a citywide event, but holding your installation at Custom Blocks will get you the following:

  • Extended overnight permit: The Opening Day festivities at Custom Blocks is from 7 PM to 11 PM, so your installation can be part of DWP's event! 
  • We will provide overnight security for your installation.  We ask that installations be removed by 11 AM Sunday April 15th.
  • Be part of the planned installation competition! Complete the supplemental design statement form explaining how your installation addresses one of the three challenge areas.

Download the Park(ing) Day Manual to learn about the guidelines on creating your installation.

This event is a collaboration between PBOT, The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, and Design Week Portland.  Read more about the collaboration here!
