For the 9th consecutive year, Portland Mall Management, Inc. is proud to bring 11 free and festive pop-up events to downtown Portland with the 2019 Holidays on the Mall series!

Throughout the month of December, Pioneer Courthouse Square will partner with PMMI to produce performances with festive carolers, beloved local bands and holiday treat giveaways along Portland’s Transit Mall. With everything from free roasted NW Nuts, holiday cookies and poinsettias to award winning caroling quartets, a full size brassy marching band, and even photos with Portland’s Tree in the Square, there is sure to be an event for everyone right in the heart of Downtown. The Holidays on the Mall event series will once again work with the B-Line trikes to distribute delicious holiday treats at various locations along SW 5th and 6th Avenues. Look out for their signature yellow trikes on December 10, 12, and 16 during the lunch hour! Portland Mall Management, Inc. is delighted to continue to bring this seasonal event series to the Transit Mall to activate one of Portland’s busiest downtown corridors while bringing holiday festivities directly to community members throughout the month of December.

Once again, in partnership with Portland Mall Management, Inc. Pioneer Courthouse Square will bring back the beloved Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition this holiday season as well! On December 13th, over a dozen local caroling groups will be stationed along Portland’s Transit Mall from 6:00-7:00 PM performing their own a Cappella versions of holiday classics. Local favorites, The Dickens Carolers, will choose the top three groups to then perform in Pioneer Courthouse Square shortly after 7:00 PM where the audience will determine the top group who will win the grand prize of $1,000! This community favorite event takes holiday spirit to a new level, filling the heart of downtown with joyful, uplifting, holiday tunes.
