In order to maintain the safety of the community and observe state government guidelines on large gatherings, many of Beaverton’s events will be presented in a different way this year. We appreciate the support and understanding of the community as we explore exciting and creative new ways to present these events to you safely. You can find the most up to date information on each event by going to http://www.BeavertonOregon.gov/events.
Bike Beaverton has become an event that you can participate in whenever you would like!

This is a fun and healthy family activity that is great on nice days. These routes have been posted at http://www.BeavertonOregon.gov/bikebeaverton.
