Oak Grove Trolley Trail Fest
August 18, 2018 at 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
HDOG invites you to come celebrate our second annual Oak Grove Trolley Trail Fest.
Last year we brought hundreds of people to this small, historic commercial district that has been struggling since the streetcar line shut down in the 1950s. With the MAX line only one half mile away, new interest has been kindling in the area. We need to show all of these vendors (old and new) how much business they can drum up from people arriving by the Trolley Trail (instead of by car!) With Metro recently approving a grant to fund a feasibility study for a bike/ped bridge across the Willamette River to provide a safe connection from the Trolley Trail to downtown Lake Oswego, it would be great to show how much demand there is for active transportation facilities in the area. (Clackamas County also needs to see this, because their 20th century parking requirements have been THE key factor that has prevented several businesses from locating or expanding in this historic commercial district over the last two years.)
