A true hidden gem in the middle of Oregon's fourth largest city, Historic Downtown Gresham offers a blend of over 150 shops, restaurants and service businesses in a cluster of both old architecture and neo-architectural new construction.
Lamposts with flower baskets and beautiful street trees greet you as the area bustles with activity. Easily accessed by light rail or by the Springwater Trailhead at Main City Park, our pedestrian friendly area lives up to our branding slogan of Stroll - Shop - Dine - Enjoy.
And if the experience of our wonderful Historic Downtown was not enough, Historic Downtown Gresham hosts a number of events annually including the Gresham Farmers' Market May through October, one of the longest running Jazz Festivals on the west coast in the 27th Annual Mt. Hood Jazz Festival, the Gresham Art Walk, the Rockin' Round the Block Car Show, Third Thursday's and a community favorite the Soroptomists Teddy Bear Parade. Check our calendar of events and visit our site often for not only new events on the horizon but for special sales and promotions from our great business partners.
