Frock is one of many independent and diverse establishments that make the mosaic that is the Alberta Arts District. Alberta Street, in the Northeast quadrant, is the destination when you come to Portland. It has the most eclectic and unique mix of boutiques, gift shops, galleries, and restaurants almost all exclusively locally owned. The 20 plus block street is teeming with art, food carts, and performers; it provides a true taste of the city.
The art galleries have opening receptions in the evening on the "Last Thursday" of every month which bring many to the neighborhood creating a festival-like atmosphere complete with street vending and musicians. There is also an annual Alberta Street Fair on the first Saturday in August which is an all day extravaganza with three stages, over 300 vendors, a children's parade, activities, and so much more!
