Fostering Traditional Music and Dance in the Pacific Northwest

The Heart of the community

Bubbaville is a nonprofit group named after the late, great square dance caller, musician and community organizer Bill “Bubba” Martin. Based in Portland, Oregon, we serve to bring together musicians, dancers and other friends of traditional music on the West Coast. Each January we present our flagship event, the Portland Old-Time Music Gathering. 

Join us for the Zigzag Old Time Campout
Aug. 28 - Sept. 2, 2024

Enjoy a long weekend of workshops, jamming and more at the foot of Mt. Hood.

Looking for our support?

Since 2008, Bubbaville has provided funding, promotion and support for dozens of projects tied to our mission. The organization has brought to the Portland region numerous performers and teachers. We’ve also funded campouts, albums, dances and more. Have an idea for a project? Let us know!
