April 6–13, 2019

Design Week Portland was built on the strength of hundreds of independent Events and Open Houses, conceived and hosted by the creative community of an entire city. There are 3 ways to get involved – please read the Participation Kit if you’d like to organize programming for the festival and apply below. The full schedule will launch mid-February.

Participation Kit

Organize an Event

Do you see a gap in the collective conversation about design and have something in mind to close it? If so, we want you.

Organize an Open House

If you have a space you'd like to open to the public, all it takes is the commitment to welcome people in during our crawl.



Are you a design enthusiast? Do you want to be part of DWP? We're going to need an army of folks to pull this off.


Submitting more than one listing? Discounts apply. Do the fees present a hardship for you? We still want you involved. Download the Participation Kit for more details.
