Public celebration of play and entertainment co-locates with family-friendly Rose City Comic Con.

The 3rd Annual Play Fair, hosted by The Toy Association and LeftField Media, is taking the show on the road to Portland, Oregon this autumn. The event, a public celebration of play and entertainment for all ages, will be held alongside Rose City Comic Con from 7th-9th September. More than 10,000 families are expected to attend an action-packed weekend of play in over 30,000 square feet of space.

Highlights will include more than 30 exhibitors and sponsors including DreamWorks, Playmobil, EntertainmentOne, Hogwild, and Relevant Play; photo opportunities with talent and costumed characters from PJ Masks, Peppa Pig, Poppy and Branch from Trolls; a kids costume parade, lightsaber training, kids concerts, magic shows and slime making.

“Inspired by last year’s success, we are thrilled to be bringing Play Fair to a new city and reaching new families,” said Kelly Comboni, president of LeftField Media. “The co-location with Rose City Comic Con is a natural fit for Play Fair PDX, as it has organically become a family-friendly event, where the entire family can spend the weekend making lasting memories.”
