Every year the Pearl District Neighborhood Association hosts its annual fundraiser and block party. This year on September 13th, we will be celebrating our 22nd  Annual Block Party.  This is our neighborhood association’s sole opportunity to raise funds to help keep our neighborhood looking great. The PDNA sponsors several programs such as dog waste stations, graffiti abatement and trash pick up and we continue to create more initiatives each year. In return we ask the residential buildings and businesses to support us by sponsoring our fundraiser.


This is our only fundraiser of the year. It’s a great chance for Pearlies to descend from their lofts and meet their neighbors over some wine and great food. It’s also the local businesses’ opportunity to get in front of their local customers. For the price of a few food platters, restaurants can market in the way that works best – by taste. The PDNA is usually all about community and leaves promoting local businesses to the PDBA, but this is when we reach out for help, so we can fund all our other programs for the year.

We will be closing down NW 13th between NW Irving and NW Hoyt from 5pm – 9pm on Friday September 13th.  This truly is a fantastic event in which many restaurants around the neighborhood contribute by offering great eats at no charge and turn the street into a mini taste of the Pearl.  We hope you can join us and learn more about the PDNA and all our initiatives as well as take an opportunity to enjoy live music, great food and drink while mingling with your neighbors.
