The Big Float is a celebration of the Willamette River. It’s a parade/float/beach party in downtown Portland that benefits the Human Access Project (HAP), a local, volunteer-driven nonprofit dedicated to helping people connect with their river and perhaps even fall in love with it.

The Big Float is also a catalyst. It’s a way to connect people and transform Portland’s relationship with the Willamette River. Hallelujah!



A FUNDRAISING BENEFIT FOR THE HUMAN ACCESS PROJECT

You must provide your own float vessel and life jacket. Life jackets are available through online registration or on location for $10.
