Music, Dancing, Fireworks, and More!

Reunions is a festival of all things Reed, and features the talents of alumni and friends of the college. This page showcases just some of our entertainment. For an exhaustive list of everything we have to offer, see the full schedule.

This year we have:

Stop Making Sense

Of course David Byrne isn't a Reedie (his loss), but Reedies love to pack the Student Union and dance to this classic. Join the raucous video dance party on Saturday night!


Saturday's afternoon Carnival features fun for the whole family. Children (and those young at heart) will enjoy juggling, face painting, balloon artistis, and more.


Marketplace returns this year with a lineup of Reedie authors and purveyors of food, drink, & crafts showcasing their wares in the Performing Arts Building from 1:30—3:30 p.m. on Saturday. Interested in participating? Please email for more details.

Talent show

Whether you're a former finalist on Southeast Portland's Got Talent or someone who last got on stage in 4th grade, come show off at the Reunions Talent Show on Saturday night. We've showcased poets, singers, jugglers, pianists, comedians, and even banjo players, all in a fun, supportive atmosphere. Heck, come read the racy parts of your Chem thesis!


A yearly tradition and the capstone of Reunions: a 10–minute extravaganza of explosive light on Saturday night. You don't want miss it.
