Some sites that list Portland weekend events include the Portland Mercury, the Willamette Week, Pipeline PDX and PC-PDX. The categories of events these sites list include music, movies, arts and comedy.
The Portland Mercury is one of the city’s two weekly alternative newspapers, and it lists a wide range of events on its website. Users can browse listings for music, film, art, theater and books, and the Mercury offers recommendations for the most notable events each weekend. Users can also browse listings to find events on certain days.
Portland’s competing alternative paper, the Willamette Weekly, also lists weekend events on its website with a slightly more varied categorization system than the Mercury. In addition to music and movies, the Willamette offers a substantial selection of arts listings, including dance, comedy and theater. The Willamette also includes recommended weekend events.
Pipeline PDX catalogs the multitude of Portland events and includes an even wider range of categories than the city’s alternative weeklies, including listings related to pets, bikes, technology, fashion and trivia. Users can browse the site’s listings by category or by tag, and Pipeline PDX offers a section entirely dedicated to weekend events.
PC-PDX serves to catalog the extensive music scene in Portland. From stadium concerts to underground punk shows, the site allows users to submit listings for any live music event in the city, which are then displayed on an interactive calendar.
