Foster Area

Celebrate the holidays on Foster! Join the Foster Area Business Association (FABA) and local businesses on Sunday, December 17, from 3-5pm, for a festive evening of free cocoa, cider, and professional caroling.

Support local businesses and celebrate community!

Come do your last-minute holiday shopping at local retail shops, get a warm holiday drink courtesy of FABA and Kainos Coffee, and enjoy the sounds of caroling from Blueprint Ensemble Arts who will be singing to passersby and in front of local businesses (near 64th and Foster).

Cocoa and cider will be provided free from 3-5pm in front of Hammer + Jacks (6406 SE Foster) while supplies last. Blueprint Ensemble Arts will perform nearby during this time, too. We will also be set up in front of Hammer + Jacks and will give out limited gift cards from local businesses further down the road to encourage support of all FABA businesses.

Additionally, we’ve partnered with Prosper Portland and the Portland Events & Film Office to utilize American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds for a cool activation at Larkspur and Higher Self (between SE 63rd & 64th on Holgate). Both businesses have decorated their storefronts and will host a busker to play music outside starting at 4pm.

Additional businesses nearby will have their own specials and promotions, including:
Wild Mountain Wax Shop – free holiday cookies
Rose & Dagger Tattoo – $20 off when making a purchase of $100
Henry Higgins Boiled Bagels – staying open late with offerings of coffee, matzo ball soup, and limited bagels; crystal vendor on site, too
5&Dime – $1 off fernette on draft; $6 hot toddy
Kaah Market – grand opening party (new location: 6927 SE Foster: 12/16 and 12/17, from 12-6pm, with free snacks and surprises for kids)

Come say “hey,” get a warm drink, enjoy the festive vibes, and support local business.
