Donate to Support Traditional Music and Dance
The Gathering is sponsored by Bubbaville, a non-profit, all-volunteer arts organization that supports old-time music and dance in Portland, Oregon. Donations to Bubbaville help to guarantee such events as “The Portland Old-Time Music Gathering”. We provide some financial and logistical backing for musical endeavors that we have determined to be important to the further development and enrichment of the local old-time music community.
Your donation to help fund The Gathering and other worthwhile old-time music and dance efforts does so much more than provide operating funds for current events. Your generosity will ensure a long-term positive effect on old-time music and dance in the Nortwest. What we do today will enrich the world our children inherit. Our gift to them will be a legacy of wonderful music and dance. Clicking the button below will enable you to make your donation through Paypal.

The Gathering’s Mission Statement
The Portland Oregon Old-Time Music Gathering is a grassroots volunteer-run festival that aims to celebrate and enrich the community of traditional old-time Appalachian style stringband musicians. We wish to create an environment where the music is as meaningful as it is when we gather to swap tunes and play in a friend’s living room or meet to play at a campsite during a summer festival. As such, we feel that it is important to keep the event non-profit and volunteer run; whether we are taking tickets, sweeping the floor, organizing an event, or playing music for a concert; we are all volunteers contributing to make this thing happen.
