tina paints at faerieworlds
Portland is a fantastic place for great outdoor festivals, markets, and more. I've had a lot of fun painting at these area festivals and events over the years -- check them out! 

These are some of the clients I've worked with in the past. If you're looking to book me for a festival or any other type of event, please check out the events page.

"Thank you for providing the fabulous face painting at the Yankton Spring Fling. The children and parents thought you were amazing and had a great time."
-- Stacey, Spring Fling organizer. 


Portland Rose Festival - The granddaddy of them all! Three don't-miss weeks in late May/early June with carnival rides, two parades, and more vendors than you can shake a stick at. 

Dixie Mt Grange Strawberry Festival - This tiny tiny festival has been going for almost 60 years and features the most AMAZING strawberry shortcakes with fresh local strawberries. Father's Day weekend, in the hills west of Cornelius Pass. 

Waterfront Blues Festival - A fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank and the best blues this side of New Orleans. Independence Day weekend in Portland, with spectacular fireworks on July 4th. 

Faerieworlds - Celebrate the magic of the puppet artists Brian and Wendy Froud...and come dressed in your best fairy wings! Everyone else does!

North Plains Elephant Garlic Festival - If you love garlic, this is the place. Garlic pizza, garlic beer, and even garlic ice cream. Besides the food, this festival is strong in arts and crafts from local artisans -- nothing mass-made here. Early August. 

Clackamas County Lavender Festival - The Oregon Lavender Farm is a lovely place with a three-mountain view. I'm not sure if the festival is still running, but the farm is absolutely worth visiting. There's lavender U-pick, and a multi-level wading pool for the kids.

Seattle Swashbucklers Pirate Festival - This festival ran in 2006 and 2007, and centered around the actual pirate ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It featured fancy (and technically correct!) fighting from the Seattle Swashbucklers.
