Wiki Wednesday events were held every month in Portland from roughly 2006 through 2011, mostly at the offices of, and with the generous sponsorship of, AboutUs. We set up a dedicated wiki for them: http://pdx.wiki.org/Welcome_to_Portland_WikiWednesday That wiki has languished somewhat; the best overview is here: http://portland.wiki/WikiWednesday

They were generally informal, and drew anywhere from 10 to 60 people, from a variety of wiki communities. We hosted at least two more substantial events (Wikipedia for Journalists and Bloggers, and Wikis and Oregon Health). We also hosted the RecentChangesCamp conference three times in those years, which had a lot of crossover with Wiki Wednesday.

The general Portland Wiki Wednesday morphed into weekly Wiki Wednesday events focused on Portland Wiki. As of 2016, there is no (known) general Wiki Wednesday meetup in Portland.
