We are pleased to announce that effective April 1st 2022, we are removing the proof of vaccination or negative test requirement for events at our indoor venues which include Merrill Auditorium, James A. Banks Sr. Portland Exposition Building, and Ocean Gateway.

Masking is no longer required but still recommended for those who may be at high risk. For those who wish to continue to wear a mask during visits to City venues, we welcome them to continue to do so freely.

Please note, we are still in a period of transition, and some events may require additional health and safety protocols, depending on requests from the artist, event organizer, promoter, or league.

Please inquire with specific ticket providers, event organizers, promoters, and teams to review any additional requirements.

The Public Assembly Facilities Division of the Parks, Recreation and Facilities Department of the City of Portland makes the safety of all guests, staff, performers, athletes, vendors, and volunteers the top priority, and we will continue to review and update our guidelines as needed.
