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

PBSCA is an active organization that hosts and co-hosts many events throughout the year.  In recent years, we have hosted wine tastings, our youth exchange to and from Bologna, Italian cyclists, our Amici dinner, and our annual Sagra fundraiser.

We invite you to join us by following us on Facebook where you can also sign up for our event notifications. Go to events page…
