So get out that raincoat and get ready to tour Oregon like never before. Today, we’ve rounded up 20 swoon-worthy Oregon event venues for you.
1. Victorian Belle
Just a ten-minute drive from downtown Portland, Victorian Belle tops our list for stunning Oregon event venues. Built by a ship captain in 1885 as a wedding gift for his wife, every single design detail in this age-old mansion feels personal, thoughtful, and utterly romantic. Boasting its original wood fixtures, a number of historic artifacts and one of the largest displays of Povey stained glass in the world, the Victorian Belle was once often referred to as “the Tiffany’s of the Northwest.”
The mansion can host 125 seated guests indoors, or 100 seated guests outdoors in its lush and expansive gardens. We love the idea of hosting a stunning wedding at Victorian Belle or renting the space for a corporate event your employees won’t soon forget. Our favorite part of the venue? With its intricate Victorian architecture and picturesque grounds, it needs little dressing up for any affair.
Just a bridge away from downtown Portland, Number 2 on our list of swoon-worthy Oregon event venues brings us to UNION/PINE. A blank-slate space with room for up to 292 standing or 130 seated guests, we love the idea of renting UNION/PINE for an artsy wedding reception or after-hours corporate holiday party. With open vendor policies and über-chic furnishings (which are complimentary upon rental of the space), events at UNION/PINE are hassle-free and handled by an experienced, dedicated, and super friendly team.
The completely customizable space boasts stunning wood floors and an urban-industrial aesthetic—making it the perfect option for those who want to host a soirée that feels as Portland as they come.
