Save the Date for our 2021 Pi-Day Virtual Party on March 14!

It’s been a loooooooong year since March 2020.

It’s still not safe to dance together, but after a Year Of A Thousand Zooms, we have all learned a few ways to have fun with our friends in virtual gatherings.

This year, the Portland Roadhouse will gather online on Pi-Day from 2-5 pm Pacific Time (don’t forget to spring forward that morning!), with music, singalongs, stories, games, workshops, discussions and other folderol.

As usual, the Roadhouse is a benefit event, and this year any proceeds beyond operating expenses will be donated to food banks in Oregon and Washington.

Four of these events will be performances, featuring several NW folk luminaries. Every other event will be interactive, meaning you can actively participate. Those events will be hosted by a panoply of other Pacific NW personages.

The schedule of events is listed below:
