Welcome to the City of Portland!
We're very proud of our community and appreciative that you have chosen to visit the official community website of the City of Portland, Indiana. Any time is a great time to visit Portland. Portland is a rural community of 6800 residents, located in East Central Indiana, just 50 miles south of Ft. Wayne and 90 miles northeast of our state capitol, Indianapolis.
However, the summer months brings especially great community events such as the Tri-State Gas Engine Show, the Antique Bike Show and the Jay County Fair. These events are great family fun entertainment and bring citizens from all over the world to our community. These community events are held at the beautiful Jay County Fairgrounds, here in Portland.
Our Community offers excellent diversity for opportunities in economic development, employment, education, parks and recreation, cultural, many fine churches and civic organizations, affordable housing, historic downtown and terrific community pride we take in the friendly atmosphere we are able to create for our guest.
Again, welcome to the City of Portland and we look forward to your return to our community, whether as a guest, a friend of the community or a place to call home.
