Several restaurants and bars also will have MLS All-Star game viewing parties on August 6.

“Having the All-Star soccer game in Portland is a great opportunity to capture some of that excitement and call attention to our often overlooked neighborhood and our great group of businesses,” explains Matt Lagasse, owner of Blend Coffee and co-president of the OVBA together with Chantelle Castle, Operations Manager of United Advantage NW Credit Union. “We hope to attract people from all over Portland, as well as out-of-towners visiting for the big MLS game and who are looking for something fun to do beforehand.”

Primary sponsor funding of the event comes from Venture Portland, along with Blend Coffee, United Advantage NW Credit Union, Ger-Brock Automotive, and additional support from Advanced Finishing, Echo Printworks and Wacker Sanitary.
