Some of the larger pen-related events in Portland:
- July 8-9, 2023: Pacific Northwest Pen Show (PNWPenShow.com) – while unaffiliated with the PDX Pen club or the historical Pen Round-Up, this is a new show that made its debut this year!

- Sept 22, 2023: Pelikan Hub – This is a worldwide event that promotes fountain pen use and has wonderful ink sampling for all – keep an eye out for notices next year at https://www.pelikan-hubs.com/! Portland has one of the largest hubs in the country!
- Nov 25-26, 2023: Pen Bazaar – The weekend after Thanksgiving at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall. Now, for two days in 2023! A great way to get your Holiday shopping turbocharged for the fountain pen lover in your life.
