IMPORTANT: Park jams have moved to Willamette Park near the back parking lot past the tennis courts. Parking is $1/hr at the kiosk. Check this website for any changes in schedules due to weather.
Community Jams is the nonprofit development of Portland Casual Jams, a network of 3800+ local musicians. We connect musicians of all abilities to foster community, compassion, and harmony by playing live music together.

COVID-19 Status

Good news! In June we’ll be reopening our studio space at 211 SE Madison St inside the East Creative Collective, a centrally-located studio and gallery for artists.
