Vanport Mosaic Festival
May 18 - May 29
2023 marks the 75th anniversary of the flood that destroyed Vanport, once Oregon’s second-largest city and the largest WWII federal housing project in the United States.
Join us for the 8th Vanport Mosaic Festival, our annual memory activism celebration to REmember, REpair, REclaim, and RE-imagine our collective story. Let’s commemorate together the 75th anniversary of the flood that destroyed Vanport – and honor the community that called Vanport home. From May 18-29, we invite you to learn about Oregon’s Katrina-like disaster with exhibits, artistic tributes, a reunion/celebration of former Vanport residents and survivors, documentary screenings and oral history recordings, tours of the historic Vanport area, and presentations.
