The Summit

  • Melody Center 615 SE Alder Street Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)


Come out for an evening full of inspiring speakers, time with friends, and great prizes! The Summit, PAF’s biggest event, has quickly become an event that is eagerly awaited throughout the year. And 2018 is no exception!

We have pulled out all the stops for you and put together an evening with amazing athletes who will be sharing not only their experiences, but their perspective on what it means to inspire others. 

In addition to their stories, you’ll also have the opportunity to don your finest non-outdoor gear, to socialize with your friends, to talk to a variety of reps from companies producing outdoor gear and providing outdoor experiences, and enjoy tasty food.

There will be raffle prizes, door prizes, and an opportunity to get your name entered into a drawing.

Heavy hors d'oeuvres are included in your ticket. There are menu items to meet the needs of gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan attendees. Menu includes: Tostada bar, Tabouleh Salad, Spanakopita, Mezze Platter, Yakisoba Salad, Vegan Spring Rolls, Teriyaki Chicken Skewers, Sweet & Sour Tofu, Baked Potato Bar, and Chicken Quesadilla Bites. Lemonade, and hot tea and coffee are included; alcoholic options including Union Wine & Base Camp Brewing Company beer are available for purchase.
