13 Mar About the PGSCA
Did you know that the Portland Guadalajara Sister City Association (PGSCA), a non-profit organization, who’s mission is to foster intercultural exchange, promote goodwill, and stimulate economic development between the cities, founded Portland’s Cinco de Mayo Fiesta?
PGSCA has dedicated board members that work tirelessly to accomplish their mission by fostering the development of municipal partnerships, providing opportunities for city officials and citizens to experience and explore the culture of Guadalajara and Portland through long-term community partnerships, and by creating an atmosphere in which economic and community development can be implemented and strengthened.
Why Guadalajara? It is known as “The City of the Roses,” “The City of the Fountains” and “The Royal City.” and was at one time best known as, “The Pearl of the West.” Guadalajara is one of the most representative cities of Jalisco, known as the capital of folklore due to the traditional Mariachi, popular dances, handicrafts, traditional cuisine and tequila. Experience these highlights and more at the Portland Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!
