Some of the larger pen-related events in Portland:

  • July 7-8, 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 plans to make its debut in 2023. We are cheering them on and looking forward to the fabulous vendors and nibmeisters they plan to entice to town.
  • Sept-ish: Pelikan Hub (historically Sept, although in 2022 it was in Nov.) – Registration is typically in the summertime – we’ll post when it’s available. This is a free, worldwide event that promotes fountain pen use and has wonderful ink sampling for all!
  • Nov: Pen Bazaar – The Saturday after Thanksgiving at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall. No plans to change this event in 2023 – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Great way to get your Holiday shopping turbocharged for the fountain pen lover in your life.
