As the Lents Ramona Street Fair nears, we are checking off the “to-dos” and ready to have some fun! Check out the vendors page to see a list of the vendors you will see at the fair. Plan on arriving with ample time to walk the street, shop the booths, eat food and drink delicious local beer or wine. Don’t forget your dancing shoes, because you won’t be able to stop yourself from dancing in the street – in the middle of SE 92nd Avenue! We are shutting down 92nd Avenue from Foster Road to Ramona Street and there will be vendors and activities to keep you busy up and down both streets. If you come early, you can pick up your produce, berries and cupcakes at the Lents International Farmers Market which will be open from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.
Can’t wait, see you there!

Thank you to all of the wonderful vendors that have signed up for a booth at this year’s Lents Ramona Street Fair! We only have a few vendor spaces left at this year’s fair, so if you have not signed up and would like to have a booth – sign up as soon as possible. The vendor application will be closed after July 1st. We are looking forward to a fantastic group of vendors, with a mix of art, crafts, homemade and recycled goods and demonstration booths! There will be a full schedule of demonstrations and activities for you to learn from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m.! A full list of activities and demonstrations will be available in July, but a sneak peek of the fun (sshhh!) includes:
- learn to make your own good-smelling, green cleaners from natural ingredients (and take home a sample!)
- and more!
Also, this year we are very thankful to have received a small grant from the East Portland Neighborhood Office and the City of Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement. Because of this grant, we have been able to provide a limited number of reduced fee vendor booths for low-income vendors. Applications were accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and the program was popular. We are now at capacity for reduced fee booths and are excited to help provide the marketing and selling opportunity to these vendors at this year’s fair!
Stay tuned for a full list of vendors and activities as the Lents Ramona Street Fair gets closer – Spread the word. Hope to see you there!
