Belmont Area Business Association
By LeeAnn Gauthier
The Belmont Area Business Association (BABA) presents the 25th Annual Belmont Street Fair on Saturday, September 11. The festival features live music, arts and crafts, nonprofits, al fresco dining and fun businesses. District members receive a $50 discount for booths. Memberships start at $60 for the calendar year. Enroll as a member and reserve for a vendor space at BelmontDistrict.org. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship details and if you’d like to volunteer for street fair helping set up/clean up, join a board member in our information booth or sponsor T-shirt printing.
Share your business victories and challenges with colleagues at a BABA meeting held every second Thursday, 9:30-10:30 am via Zoom. Contact email@example.com to obtain a link for the meeting. Our August 12 meeting will finesse logistics for the Street Fair to occur September 11.
The 2021 Belmont District Walking Map is published and is distributed at the PDX Welcome Center, local hotels, local businesses and in the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association newsletter.

Hawthorne Boulevard Business Association
By Nancy Chapin
Hawthorne Blvd. hosts over 400 businesses that friends, neighbors and visitors from all over the world appreciate. They value the diversity of services, products, meals, snacks, entertainment and its architectural history. We know that the construction to improve Hawthorne Blvd. has had temporary impacts on the community, so help us support our neighbors during this time. As a thank you for your patience during construction and as an incentive to visit Hawthorne Blvd., PBOT, Venture Portland and HBBA are teaming up and inviting you to enjoy all that Hawthorne has to offer.
Share a photo of your visit to a business with us to be entered into weekly drawings for $50 gift certificates. We look forward to seeing pictures of your business neighbors: a staff member, the owner, your purchase, your meal, the businesses’ window, their sign, the front entrance or a piece of art on the wall. Post photos to Instagram and tag the HBBA Instagram account, @hawthorneblvd_pdx, through Wednesday, September 22 to submit your entry. More at bit.ly/HBBAphotocontest.
The 38th Annual Hawthorne Street Fair will be held on Sunday, August 22, 11 am-5 pm from SE 30th Ave. to Cesar E. Chavez Blvd. and beyond. For more information, visit facebook.com/hawthornepdx. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
