After years of construction and disruption, Division Street is once again Open for Business!

The neighborhood survived the chaos – and can proudly say many of your favorite businesses are still here and lots of new businesses have opened, or are about to open.

Friday, October 24, the street is holding a party and the pleasure of your company is requested. Many local businesses will offer activities, host events and make special offers for customers.

Artifact Creative Recycle; Menagerie bath, beauty, gift and garden shop; Mirador Kitchen and Home, Portland Juice Company, and others will be taking part.

D Street Villages hosts a big open house to showcase all three buildings.  The SE Wine Collective celebrates National Champagne Day, offering flutes of champagne at special prices.

A map of participating businesses will be available at Openfest.

Every party needs live music too. Imperial Bottle Company hosts a music stage at 31st and Division from 3 – 9 pm.  Local favorites Love Gigantic provide the headline performance and a variety of bands will play as well. Adults can enjoy the nearby beer garden.

Haven’t been to Division St. recently? Come to 31st and Division, Friday October 24 at 10 am for the Grand Opening ceremony. Commissioners Nick Fish and Steve Novik will declare the street open for business and the song of triumph will begin with a brief walk and talk along newly-paved sidewalks to view first-hand improvements that have taken place.
