Fertile Ground Festival

Thursday, January 18, 2018 more dates through January 28, 2018

Multiple locations

"Portland’s annual “city-wide festival of new works” offers a winter cornucopia of creativity, showcasing original works of theater, dance and comedy with a fierce focus on the fresh and local. Shows include fully produced world premieres by leading companies, numerous staged play readings and the passion projects of independent artists. The Fertile Ground festival presents 11 days of varied entertainment at venues all across town. Some events are free and some are ticketed, but a festival pass is the most cost-efficient way to maximize your enjoyment." - Oregon Arts Watch

What can be said about Fertile Ground? Just about anything! This inclusive incubator for brand-new locally-grown art includes plays, musicals, dance pieces and plenty of other events that may defy description (and often exceed even their creators’ expectations). This is your chance to dig deeper into Portland’s performance world, watch workshop performances before they get picked up for full production, tune into emerging playwrights’ unique voices and see new faces in the spotlight. Pick and choose individual shows, or spring for a festival pass to catch them all!
