St. Johns is a neighborhood of Portland, Oregon, located in North Portland on the tip of the peninsula formed by the confluence of the Willamette River and the Columbia River. Many structures are still standing, like the former St. Johns City Hall, from the time when the community was a separate, incorporated city. The community is known for its amazing bridge, Jazz Festival, annual parade, and eclectic mix of restaurants and small businesses. This walk has some steep grades, so bring comfortable shoes and a water bottle. The tour starts at Two Stroke Coffee Co. 8517 N. Lombard St., Portland, OR, 97203. This tour is offered on the Third Saturday of each month at 3 p.m., Thanksgiving & Christmas 2023. Thanks to a partnership with The St. Johns Boosters, Venture Portland, and Prosper Portland the tours are offered at a reduced rate. If you are interested in this tour but are not in town on the Third Saturday of the month, please reach out to us. We are flexible and can add dates.
