Special Events

On May 30, 1948, what was once Oregon’s second-largest city was destroyed by a flood that displaced more than 18,000 residents, one-third of them black. A play about the city’s rise and fall, short documentaries on people who lived through the flood, a photo exhibit, an educational conference, and a reunion of Vanport’s former residents are all part of this four-day event memorializing a place whose existence and destruction had a direct impact on our state’s racial history.
