Sunday, July 27

Alpenrose Dairy, Oregon's oldest family-owned dairy, is ready once again to welcome families to Dairyville, a Western-themed “town” located right on the 52-acre dairy farm. A Portland tradition for over 50 years, kids and adults flock to the streets of Dairyville during the summer months to explore this fun pioneer exhibit. Visitors can peak into the Confectionery, the Great Western Bank, the Dairyville School, and the post office. Kids can watch model trains chug through tiny Oregon landscapes and learn from some of the area’s train club experts. And no Dairyville visit would be complete without stopping off at the Ice Cream Parlor for a delicious Alpenrose ice cream cone. Dairyville is free to the public and open every Sunday afternoon beginning June 1 through August 31 from 1:00 - 4:00 PM. Bring the entire family to Dairyville at Alpenrose Dairy, located at 6149 SW Shattuck Road, off the Beaverton Hillsdale Highway.
