Established in 1909, this intimate, historic wedding venue has been called the “crown jewel” of NW Portland. Our 2600-square-foot reception hall comfortably holds 84 people and provides a welcoming space for Portland receptions and ceremonies.

NWNCC boasts hand-crafted Roman Revival architecture with an array of photography opportunities throughout the building and the surrounding NW Portland neighborhood. The reception hall includes large daylight windows that extend onto a small courtyard, perfect for enjoying the summer air. This historical Portland venue comes with round and rectangular tables, a small stage, a dance floor, a BOSE sound system, two kitchenettes and an acoustic piano. The large windows fill two sides of the room, and an adjacent loading zone makes it easy to load and unload items for your event.

Our Wedding Venue Philosophy: A Mission with Heart
Portland couples today want to know that their wedding dollars are going back into their community. By renting with NWNCC, your dollars go directly into supporting theater education for hundreds of children in the Portland area. NWNCC’s managing tenant is the Northwest Children’s Theater and School, and their mission is to educate, entertain and enrich the lives of young audiences. NWCT is not just about plays, or classes. It’s about the next generation of creative thinkers.

At NWNCC we believe that weddings should be affordable, and our rates reflect this mission. NWNCC provides an inexpensive Portland venue that allows you to fully customize your wedding day. Once you’ve chosen NWNCC as your wedding venue you can focus on tailoring the space for your unique vision. Our event site is OLCC friendly, and we won’t tie you to any particular vendors.
