Sauvie Island, with its rural charm combined with the proximity to the Portland metropolitan area, holds much appeal to groups hoping to hold events here on the island. If you are planning an event here, we encourage you to download, fill out and submit the Special Event Form PDF.
The combination of limited access through a single bridge, the narrowness of the roads — in particular the dike road, and the limited locations for large groups to congregate really presents difficulties for island residents and visitors to our wildlife areas, parks, and the farmstand businesses here on the island.
While the Sauvie Island Community Association cannot grant or deny permission for events that take place on County roads and public property, we do try to alert island residents and businesses about group events held here on the island. The information you provide using the form helps us to keep community informed.
Note that some events will also require a Multnomah Country Event application. Information can be found at http://web.multco.us/roads/permit-applications
