Project Pabst Takes Over Tom McCall Waterfront Park August 27 – 28

MFNW Presents Project Pabst Portland

After two years on its own, Project Pabst has joined forces with MusicfestNW to produce this year’s festival in Portland, Oregon. Project Pabst Portland will take place on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Each day the gates open at Noon with music being performed on two stages from 1:00pm to 10:00pm.

Being sponsored by Pabst Brewing, Project Pabst features copious amounts of everyone’s favorite hipster beer, Pabst Blue Ribbon. This is the beer that had beer living high off its Blue Ribbon performance from back in 1893. Also everyone’s favorite alcoholic root beer, Not Your Father’s, will be served at Project Pabst.

It’s great that Pabst honors the Rose City, as it was here where PBR saw its revitalization over the past dozen years. With Project Pabst’s 2016 Denver performance now behind us, Project Pabst has added a couple of new dates and locations with Atlanta, Georgia on October 1, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 8.
