First Fridays

First Friday at Millennium Park Plaza

Thank you for your interest and participation in Lake Oswego Parks & Recreation Community Events.  The City has undergone some changes that have resulted in staff reduction and as a consequence reduced community events.  Events eliminated this year include First Fridays, Pets on Parade, Harvest Festival, Holiday Houses of Lake Oswego Gingerbread Competition, September Symphony and Summer Splash Concerts.

We look forward to seeing you at the concerts, the Star Spangled 4th of July Celebration, Movies in the Park and the Farmers' Market!
