Downtown Block Party


Many years ago, on the eve before the City’s biggest event, Celebrate Hillsboro, Downtown businesses saw an opportunity and grabbed it. With the streets closed the day before the big event, why not create their own event by claiming the walkable blocks created by the street closures, add live music, extend their hours, and invite the community. This tradition became known as the Downtown Block Party, and we are glad to be the presenters of this event. And, as we have over the last few years we intend to make the party even bigger in 2020. Check back for more details as they are confirmed, but in the meantime, make sure that the night of July 17 is blocked off on your calendar, because you aren’t going to want to miss this.



More details coming soon. 


Check back soon to see what we have planned.


 PARKING: There is plenty of street parking Downtown after the workforce goes home for the evening. A sure bet, is one of the City lots off of 2nd Avenue. They are located:

  • At the SE corner of SE 2nd Avenue and SE Washington Street.
  • On the south side of the Hillsboro Civic Center, on SE Washington Street between SE 1st and 2nd Avenues.
  • On the west side of NE 2nd Avenue, mid-block between NE Lincoln and Jackson Streets.

BUSINESS PARTICIPATION: As many businesses as are able will be open in the street closure area along Main and 3rd. Some other Downtown businesses from outside of the street closure will also have extended hours. If you are a business and would like to support the event, email info@downtownhillsboro.orgB
