There are many ways to volunteer in the Pearl District. Click here to see a current list of specific ways you can help. We have several ‘clean up’ events throughout the year, such as Polish the Pearl and Graffiti Busters Cleanups.
A good sports bar is hard to find sometimes, but The Fields Bar & Grill has 13 HDTV’s for you to catch all your favorite College and Professional Teams.
It is also a hot spot for great food, fresh handcrafted cocktails and craft beers. Located in Portland’s Pearl District on the corner of 11th and Northrup, you’ll find a dedicated staff and an enjoyable atmosphere to watch your favorite sports team or relax with family and friends. Their menu features local, natural, sustainable ingredients, whenever possible, to create a menu that is not your typical sports bar cuisine.
Be sure to swing by sometime this season to watch your favorite team, rain or shine!!
