Funtastic Traveling Shows

The Pacific Northwest's biggest, best and family-friendliest carnival, Funtastic features a full array of family fun, including gentle Kiddie Land rides, tried and true family favorites and over-the-top twisters for older, more adventurous thrill seekers. It's Funtastic -- Just Possibly the World's Best Carnival!

PLEASE NOTE: Riders must be 2 years of age or older and meet height requirements to ride.

The Big Sling

This human catapult is big, fast, and thrilling as it slings riders skyward nearly 25 stories high at over 3 Gs of gravitational force. As the highest flying ride in the Pacific Northwest, the Big Sling is perfect for big thrill seekers.

A Walk on the Wild Side

This popular live animal exhibit brings a diverse mix of exotic mammals, birds, reptiles and spiders. Tigers and lions, snakes and spiders - these unusual creatures will delight all animal lovers. This exhibit's presence helps fund an animal rescue program and 40-acre country sanctuary.

Food Fair

In addition to all of your festival favorite foods, this year's food court offers barbecue, Hawaiian, deserts, charcoal broiled hamburgers, pizza, and more!

Pavilion Stage and Rogue Pub

New this year, the Pavilion Stage, features a selection of diverse cultural performances, some of Portland's favorite indie bands, cover bands and more. The Pavilion also features Oregon's own Rogue Brewery pouring its limited edition Rose Festival Ale and spirits.
