OR – Petesfest 2013

P&P

Press Release:

Brush off your buffalo plaid: Portland is finally getting its very own Adventures of Pete & Pete reunion show, hosted by the Hollywood Theater!

PetesFest is an all-ages event, featuring two nights of Q&A, live music, and more, with Adventures of Pete & Pete creators Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi, and actors Michael C. Maronna (Big Pete), Danny Tamberelli (Little Pete), Judy Grafe (Mom), and Toby Huss (Artie); along with a Pete & Pete-themed art show, KrebScout merit badges, the re-release of Pete & Pete tribute zine Waiting for October, and much, much more.

The Adventures of Pete & Pete aired on Nickelodeon between 1989 and 1996, first as a series of minute-long shorts, followed by five summer specials and finally three regular seasons. 20 years later, its appeal holds: Allmusic called it “the greatest children’s show ever,” and IGN described it as “One of the best-written kids shows ever.” In 2011 and 2012, Pete & Pete reunion shows played to sold-out audiences in New York and California; this is the first in the Pacific Northwest.

Any profits from PetesFest will benefit homeless-youth mentorship program P:ear and the Hollywood Theater’s youth education initiatives.
