“Join us November 15 at the Portland Expo Center (2060 N Marine Drive, Portland, Oregon 97217) for our biggest Girl Scout celebration of the year – GirlFest! Discover hundreds of amazing activities – learn to ride a skateboard, “drive” a submarine, control a robot and more. Finish your day with a rockin’ concert from “American Idol” finalist, “Glee” guest star and international recording artist Jessica Sanchez! Have fun with your friends and experience everything cool about being a girl. Everyone is invited to share in the fun (boys, too!) and you don’t have to be a Girl Scout to attend. We can’t wait for you to join us!”
