Childcare Available

Know if a babysitter, nanny, nanny-share or daycare provider that is available? Please post to our childcare forum.


Got an event that you're dying to share with the urbanMamaville? Send us your event invite via Outlook, Google Calendar, or any compatible iCAL format and we will add it to our events calendar. The more information you can provide (time, place, url, contact info), the better.

We are looking for unique events for the whole family, in and near Portland, OR, as well as cool events for fun-loving mamas and papas. We emphasize community events, local businesses, and things to do that are free-of-charge. The urbanMamas calendar continues to be such a great resource because of all the events you suggest, so keep 'em coming!

For more ideas, be sure to also check out upcoming urbanMama events as well as some other local resources for suggestions on family fun, check out our calendar!
