Event Spaces


Our three beautiful banquet halls extend a casual elegance highlighted by broad-beamed ceilings and the warm wood tones of solid paneled interiors. When the season permits, our Central Plaza can add to your star-studded evening functions or daytime festival.  The World Forestry Center is the perfect location for corporate events, weddings and social events. 

Our 5.5 acre campus is located 10 minutes from downtown Portland and conveniently located directly on the MAX light rail line.

To help make your event successful, our larger facilities include full kitchens, tables and chairs, optional dance floor, raised stage, and sound systems. All of our event spaces are air conditioned.  Our experienced staff will set the room up to your specifications and our extensive preferred caterers list allows you the flexibility to choose a personalized menu.
