About Fall In Love With Lents
Fall in Love with Lents is a free community event organized by East Portland Collective in the Lents Neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Started in 2022, Fall in Love with Lents is a way to activate Lents Town Center by providing free activities, entertainment, and art for all to enjoy. Our goal was to create an event to build community and celebrate art by creating an opportunity accessible to all members of our diverse East Portland neighborhoods. In 2022, Fall in Love with Lents was able to engage over 500 people through our programming.
