Lake Oswego August Events – 2013

Lake Oswego is located South of downtown Portland nestled between the Lake and the Willamette River. This small community has its own events and activities from comedy to family shows, kids events and foodie fairs. Here’s what’s happening in and around Lake Oswego this August.

August 4 to the 18th at the Lakewood Center for the Arts enjoy a comedy show called "Greater Tuna".  This unique feature is about “Texas’ third smallest town where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies”. It sure to entertain and tickets are $30-$32. Friday, August 4 at 7 PM at the George Rogers Park will be another romantic comedy called “Lovers Quarrels” which is a slapstick comedy by Masque Alfresco.Things to do in Lake Oswego in August

I love the Lake Oswego area and if you’re considering moving or relocating to or from the city feel free to give me a call anytime. I’d be happy to offer my tips and suggestions on moving, information on different neighborhoods or commute routes, and help you find the right home in Lake Oswego. Joe Mabel [GFDL ( or CC-BY-SA-3.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons
