On July 14, hundreds of folks will be dressing down and heading to Parkrose for the “10th Annual Rossi Farms Barn Bash”.
This great 21-and-over event, held every year at Rossi Farms, raises money for the Parkrose Youth Activities Fund. More than 30 area sponsors donate food, services, or money, to underwrite the event.
The $12 entrance fee buys an all-you-can-eat BBQ chicken dinner, cooked up by the Parkrose Lions Club‚ and they really know how to cook chicken right. The dinner is served from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.
For entertainment, patrons can take in the Wild Western Action Show performed by Turkey Creek Productions‚ it’s a blast (or two!). These professional actors, dressed in authentic costuming, portray the rough-and-tumble activities one might see in Parkrose a century ago. There’s as much humor as action, in the scenes they present.
Also, in the barn, visitors may choose to dance to live country music provided by The Last Rodeo Band.
Sip premium craft beers donated by the Widmer Brothers Brewing Company at the no-host bar (you pay, but the cost is reasonable).
Check outer East Portland stores for tickets, or buy at the gate. The fun starts at 6:00 p.m., and it runs until midnight.
Rossi Farms is located at 3839 NE 122nd Ave. at NE Shaver Street.
