What is it?
The Passport to Old Town is a program that helps you discover all the great small businesses in downtown Beaverton. This year will be conducted with a local mobile app, BabbleBuy.
When is it?
The Passport to Old Town will begin on Small Business Saturday, November 27, 2021 and run through March 31, 2022.
How it Works
Download Babble Buy by clicking the button in this section or by scanning the QR code on the posters around downtown. Use the app to discover participating locations and the specific offers for each business. Then go visit them!
When you make a purchase, create your buzz (a social media post within BabbleBuy). Many businesses have discounts and benefits for return visits! Just show them your previous buzz about their business. It is your "stamp."
Where to Go
Participating passport businesses will be shown within the BabbleBuy app, so it will be easy to discover places you have never been before. Participating businesses will also have a Passport to Old Town poster at their storefront.
Use this Google Form to sign-up if you are a business in Old Town Beaverton (south of Canyon, north of 5th Street, and between Stott & Lombard). If you are a Beaverton Central business (including Beaverdam Road, the BG Food Cartel, and The Round), you may sign-up as well, though the focus is primarily Old Town.
The passport program will be live between November 27, 2021 and March 31, 2022. To participate, click the button below to download the passport app (BabbleBuy) today!

Our very first bubble tea walk will happen on April 30, 2022! Come taste bubble tea from in and around downtown Beaverton. Modeled after our Wine Walk, this event will get you experiencing new drinks and exploring new businesses.
Each May, we host 10 wineries in downtown Beaverton in different shops to pour wine tastings. It's a great way to explore the community while having great wine! This event is returning in 2022!
In June each year, Pride Beaverton’s hosts Beaverton's Pride celebration to bring joy, support, and acknowledgement to the LGBTQ community in Beaverton, Oregon. This event always has great music, vendors, and people.
July & August
Each July and August, the City of Beaverton and the Diversity Advisory Board host the Beaverton Night Market, a collection of international food and craft vendors along the streets of downtown Beaverton.
August also welcomes La Strada dei Pastelli, a nationally-recognized chalk art festival. This year’s festival is being hosted in collaboration with the Beaverton Night Market along 1st Street. Come see highly-skilled chalk muralists and participate with some chalking of your own!
September features our Old Town Beer Walk where local breweries provide samples of their beer inside local tap houses, pubs, and retailers. This event has been unable to happen during COVID, but we look forward to its return in 2022.
September 23 - October 3, 2021
Every last week of September and first week of October sees the 10-day promotion of Beaverton Restaurant Week. Downtown Beaverton is home to over 45 of the best restaurants in the Portland region, and this is your opportunity to taste unique menu items created specifically for this event.
The end of October features the annual trick-or-treat with businesses. A safe way to show off the costumes, grab a treat, and visit your favorite and lesser-known local shops in Old Town Beaverton.
Dine Local, Taste Global!
Beaverton Restaurant Week will return in September 2022!
The fifth annual Beaverton Restaurant Week took place between September 23rd-October 3rd, 2021. Almost 40 restaurants in downtown Beaverton were offering unique limited-time menu items made just for this event.
Downtown Beaverton is home to a diverse array of delicious, independent restaurants serving cuisine from around the world. Dine Local, Taste Global. Beaverton Restaurant Week has been featured in the Oregonian, EaterPDX, and several local media outlets.
In 2021, a select number of restaurants offered 10%-off to frontline workers. That means First Responders, Teachers, Grocery & Service Workers, and Medical Workers! Let the restaurant know when you show up.
