May 8th - May 11th


Bridgetown is a celebration of innovative humor that proudly bears Portland’s signature style. Now in its 7th year, the festival's roster of performers features a blend of world-famous headliners, up-and-coming performers, and the Pacific Northwest’s top talent. It's far more than just a festival of stand-up comedy. Bridgetown’s programming offers sketch, improv, podcasts, films, panel discussions, music, and interactive audience games. The result is the type of ingenious, spontaneous, creative fantasia that can only happen in Portland.

Festival venues include the Doug Fir, the Alhambra Theater, the Hawthorne Theater, the Bossanova Ballroom, and the White Owl Social Club, in addition to more informal performance spaces along Hawthorne Boulevard.
