Annual Trillium Festival
Thursday, April 1 - Friday April 30, 2021 • 9:00am-8:00pm
Tryon Creek State Park, Portland, OR


In its 41st year, the Annual Trillium Festival celebrates both the renewal of spring in the forest and the renewal of community support for Friends of Tryon Creek’s mission in partnership with Oregon State Parks, to inspire and nurture relationships with nature in our unique urban forest. The blooming Trillium flowers are a sure sign of spring’s annual resilience to the harshness of the winter season. Honoring this annual event, while we are still apart, will support the Tryon community in our shared contribution to public safety.

Join us for a month long celebration online beginning Saturday April 3rd
Multimedia celebration includes:
• Member gifts and weekly prize drawings
• Nature Activities and Scavenger Hunts
• Spring Flower Photography Slideshow
• Native Planting Tips for Gardeners
• Tryon hiking videos

Friends of Tryon Creek are grateful for the Tryon communities support and engagement. We look forward to gathering in the forest again soon. tryonfriends.org
