Monthly Meetings

When we meet in person, it is normally at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall on NW Quimby (1945 NW Quimby St, Portland, OR 97209).

Currently we are meeting regularly over Zoom on the Second Sunday of the month, at 1PM, and experimenting with hybrid in-person meetings every other month.

To get Zoom information, you must be a member of the private Facebook Group PDXPen or the Google Group PDXPen which also needs a request to join. Meeting details will not be posted here.

Annual Events – Looking ahead to 2023

  • The first Pacific Northwest Pen Show is DONE! It was held July 8 & 9, 2023, produced by Got Your Back Solutions LLC (not the pen club). It had a healthy turnout, four fabulous nibmeisters, and a lovely variety of vendors. IF you missed it this year, we suggest you look at and see if they have an email list for notifications for 2024. Of course, PDX Pen will pay close attention to timing, registration, etc & keep our members notified.
  • Pelikan Hub 2023Friday Sept 22nd, 2023 – registration has now closed. We are actually at capacity for the room reserved (108 folks signed up! We’re one of the biggest hubs in the country!). Notification on details will happen via email to registered participants. Details will not be posted here.
  • Pen BazaarSaturday & Sunday, November 25-26, 2023. This is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so awake from the turkey-induced stupor to join us and kick off the Holiday shopping right! As with previous years, we’ll be at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall on NW Quimby, 1-5PM.
