About us



Metro Parent and PDX Kids Calendar are Portland’s most widely-read resources for all things families, from the best tips on where to play, eat and shop with your kids to well-researched stories on the health and education issues that matter to you. In our magazine and on our website, and you’ll find great giveaways, guides, reviews and stories that are fun, smart, local and just a little offbeat — just like PDX families.

We’re proud to be a flexible, family-friendly workplace. All of us are parents and, with the exception of publisher Keith Goben, we’re all working moms. (He’s a working dad, of course!). Learn more about our staff members here.

Metro Parent and PDX Kids Calendar are advertiser-supported media. Through the participation of hundreds of local businesses we are able to provide you with what we do for free. Please consider supporting our advertisers when you’re out and about with (or without) your kids. For information about advertising opportunities, click here.
