First Friday Art Walk
5 to 8 p.m. Friday. Congress Street and surrounding streets.
Creative Portland describes its First Friday Art Walk as a free self-guided tour of art galleries, art studios, museums and alternative art venues. This is true, but the art walk is also a mecca for street performers and local makers who line the streets selling their wares. It’s always a bit of a circus, but in a really fun way.

She’s performed all over the country and currently is writing and starring in the dramedy web series “Code Green.”
