Portland-Bologna Sister City Association (PBSCA) actively promotes the strong ties between Portland, Oregon and Bologna, Italy through events, exchanges, exhibits and outreach.

September was a busy month for PBSCA.  We welcomed cyclists from the Po River Delta as they embarked on a West Coast odyssey.  And we hosted our annual Sagra!  This was our big fundraiser to support our Youth Exchange and other fun activities throughout the year. If you couldn't make it, don't worry, you can still support us during our annual appeal starting in November!  Go to events page…

Youth Exchange 2016!

After two whirlwind weeks our nine Portland host families waved goodbye to their intrepid Italian guests.  The 2016 Youth Exchange group visited the beach and Mt. Hood, the Oregon Historical Society, the Japanese Garden and the Zoo.  They rode the bus, MAX, streetcar and tram, met with Mayor Hales and roller skated at Oaks Park. And those were just the group events! A huge thanks to our host families for making this exchange possible.  We look forward to going to Bologna in 2017!  Learn more…
