Waking Windows is back! Bigger, better, one year older, and one year wiser...

The 2017 festival featured 100+ bands, authors, artists, comedians, thinkers, and a diverse mix of special programs across two nights and over a dozen venues througout Bayside and Congress St. The team's been deep in the throes of planning a 2018 festival that will be just as grand, intense, and beautiful. More details to come soon!

For more information go to wakingwindowsportland.comRSVP on the Facebook event and follow Waking Windows social media for updates.

Blue has won Portland’s Best Jazz Venue for several years in a row and dedicates every Saturday night to Jazz at Blue.

We are a DONATION BASED venue. Please show your support to the musicians by donating to the basket by the stage. Because we don’t charge a cover and 100% of your donations go to the musicians we respectfully ask that each person make a ONE PURCHASE MINIMUM of food/beverage to help support the room. All seats are first come, first served (feel free to share a table). We do not take reservations.
