Pacific Northwest Pen Show! (July 8 -9, 2023 in Portland, Oregon)

In case you missed the news from earlier this year....

The inaugural Pacific Northwest Pen Show is happening on July 8 & 9 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton hotel in Portland, Oregon !

2023 show schedule (as of this writing):

July 7 – VIP Events
July 8 – 10 am to 5 pm
July 9 – 10 am to 5 pm

July 10 – Community Events

The show's official website is at and it's packed with lots of information---you can sign up for show updates, buy admission tickets in advance (under "Registration"), book a table (if you want to sell pens) and see who's planning to attend (current exhibitors list here

The website says that the show will have speakers, workshops and special events, so it sounds like a lot of fun!

The venue is the same wonderful, historic hotel (the former Multnomah Hotel) in downtown Portland where the old Portland Pen Show (2004-2008) was held. If you wish to stay at the pen show hotel, there's a link on the show's website (under "Venue") where you can reserve a room.

For show updates, I'd recommend signing up on their official website and/or following the official Instagram account set up by show organizer Staci Paley.

This is the closest pen show to Vancouver, so it's a great opportunity to see/buy/trade for some amazing writing instruments --modern & vintage-- and meet some fellow pen fan(atic)s from around the world, too! 😁
