The Hunger Games Poster

We may be a small town (1190 the sign says) but we sure know how to throw a weekend-long party.

If you could stay up that late, Friday night/Saturday morning at 12:01 am you could have joined the crowds (who across the US turned out for the most popular midnight opening of all time) to view the premiere of The Hunger Games, right here in our own Savoy Theatre. Showings continued throughout the weekend.

Artists Talk

Saturday all day long you could have attended the “Artists Round-Up” sponsored by the Port Orford and Langlois Libraries. The free event featured local artists who displayed and sold an amazing array of paintings, photos, notecards—there was even a scrimshaw artist! Musicians played and writers read from their works which were also for sale. Lunch was catered by local culinary luminary, Joyce S-K who introduced “Curry Burritos” to the hungry art-loving public.

Late afternoon you could have moseyed over to Elaine R’s and Karen A’s TriAngle Square Gallery for Happy Hour and a presentation about the latest doings in the Main Street program (and to look at their just-opened show featuring incredible artist locals, sculptor Janet Pretti and potter David Woof).

Main Street invite

Then you could have dined on your favorite pizza at Siren’s Cove before attending the concert of Duo Flamenco, Grant Ruiz and Terry Longshore, who entertained the appreciative crowd with two hours of amazing flamenco music.

If you still hadn’t filled your craving for artistry after grabbing brunch at Redfish (the smoked salmon hash is an all-time favorite), you could have headed up to Roaring Sea Art Gallery, Donna R’s lovely gathering place for a Sunday afternoon filled with readings and music by accomplished local talent. And you could have filled your plate with amazing delectables too.

Bet you wish you lived in our town…and we invite you to join us soon! The Aleutian geese are beginning to head north—I’ve been told that’s a sure sign spring is here and the rains should soon be over.

But no matter, there’s always something happening here in Port Orford.
