Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Nadaka Community Festival a marvelous success! This year we over 350 participants, 3 performances, and 34 partnering organizations & businesses, 22 of which hosted a community booth!

A shout out to our wonderful performers/artists, Albertsons on 181st & NE Glisan for donating refreshments, Starbucks for donating coffee for volunteers, Rockwood PUD for supplying water. Thank you to our Volunteers/Team Leaders, City of Gresham Staff, Gresham High School Key Club, Cenntential Park School, the East County Nature Crew, TALON Apprentices, & Nadaka SummerWorks interns who made this an amazing event! We couldn’t have done it without you!
