Peacock Productions, Inc. is proud to present the 30th Anniversary of Peacock In The Park, an all-ages, family friendly Summertime Spectacular scheduled for Sunday, June 25, 2017 at the Washington Park Amphitheater in Portland, Oregon.
Peacock In The Park 2017 will feature live music, drag entertainers, dancers and more for a fun-filled day in the park. Either bring your own picnic or grab a snack at one of the Peacock concessions carts. The picnic and music starts at 12:00pm and the show starts at 2:30pm.
Admission is FREE but remember, this is a fundraiser to send LGBTQ students to college, so donations are encouraged and appreciated! Cash and credit cards will be accepted for concessions, souvenirs and/or donations. All net proceeds benefit the Audria M. Edwards Scholarship Fund.
Food & Beverages:
Concessions available for purchase. No alcohol will be sold or served. However, you are welcome to bring your own beer or wine. No hard liquor please. Unlawful consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited.
Please bring your own blanket or low sand chair for seating. All seating is first come first serve. No smoking (this includes marijuana) will be allowed due to Ordinance No. 187020, effective March 20, 2015.

Where to Find Us:
The Amphitheater opens at 7:30AM and seating is on a first come, first serve basis. I'm planning on getting there around 10:00am, but if you're a "First person to arrive" kind of being, let me know and we'll coordinate together.
Since this is a popular event, I highly suggest using alternative modes of transportation and arrive as early as you can. All updates will be communicated through this page (i.e. where we're sitting, if you need help finding us etc), and I highly suggest downloading the Meetup app on your phone. I'll message everyone the day before with my contact information as backup so you can reach me in case of an emergency.
If you can't reach us via phone, I'll be wearing some outrageous bi-centric outfit and have the Bi-flag on display.
Please Note: To keep our events running smoothly, amBi takes RSVPs seriously, and as such ask that you update your RSVP in advance should your plans change and you're not able to attend an event. No shows may impact your ability your participate in future events
