When's the best time to visit Portland? Today, tomorrow, and three weeks from now. There's always something unique happening in the Rose City. Portland Zines are a series of guides that explore different aspects of the city through the eyes of local artists and creatives. Check out the growing collection of Portland Zines dedicated to the city's favorite shops, bars, restaurants, events, and culture.

The rich, stunning emerald greens of the Pacific Northwest come at a cost: On average, Portland has about 154 days of measurable precipitation, but that doesn't keep Rose City residents down. Illustrator Cassandra Frances' 34 Things to Do in the Rain offers plenty of exciting indoor and outdoor activities alike to brighten gray days. Looking to get some holiday shopping done in a downpour? Head to the Portland Bazaar where you can shop from dozens of local makers under one dry roof. When the rain really starts to fall head to the Portland International Film Festival, where each February over 140 international shorts and features are shown across the city.
