Each member business is highlighted with its own page linked under Local Businesses. Check the pages for details including hours, location, menus (if applicable), and links to social media.

St. Johns Bridge going into St. Johns Portland Oregon, home of the Boosters, supporting businesses in St. Johns.
The St. Johns Bridge is one of the gateways into St. Johns, a small town in the big city of Portland, Oregon.

Incorporated in 1902, St. Johns is the walkable northern neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Located on the peninsula formed by the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, it has the atmosphere of a small town, family friendly with schools, jobs and services all readily available.

St. Johns offers a downtown shopping district with eclectic shops, artist community, restaurants representing a diversity of cultures, and the beautiful waterfront park under the soaring bridge.

The industrial areas along the rivers include cargo and shipping facilities and the Rivergate Industrial District. The most distinctive feature of our community is our famous bridge. Under this bridge is Cathedral Park, rated by BuzzFeed as one of the “22 of the Coolest Places to Get Married in America”. The St. Johns Bridge simply never takes a bad picture.

Directions to St. Johns

North Lombard Street and Burlington Avenue intersect in the heart of St. Johns and mark the location of the St. Johns Plaza. Most member businesses are within a few blocks and a short stroll from the Plaza.
