Portland Diocese cancels annual Harvest Ball

PORTLAND — Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing restrictions on large indoor gatherings, the 2020 Harvest Ball has been canceled.

The ball has been held for the last 13 years and sold out in 2018 and 2019 with over 400 attendees. The 2021 Harvest Ball will be held on Friday, Oct. 22, at the Holiday Inn by the Bay.
