Industrious spaces

With both indoor and outdoor options, a board room, and a full community kitchen, we offer flexible spaces for a variety of events.

With great care and concern for our events center staff and the public, the Redd is currently closed for public events. We are posting new updates here or get in touch to learn more.

The Redd is located in the heart of Portland’s Central Eastside, a neighborhood with a rich, hard-working industrial history that dates back to the mid-1800s. Over the years, the Central Eastside has grown to encompass food enterprises, small-batch distilleries, coffee roasters, emerging art galleries, and local food retailers that keep the hardworking spirit of this neighborhood alive in a new age of industry.

As a working hub for the regional food economy, the Redd honors this neighborhood’s roots and serves as a platform for the community to collaborate and engage in meaningful ways. We see the Redd as a catalyst for memorable celebrations and events that cultivate community, foster imagination, and enthusiastically color outside the lines.

Community Grants

The Redd’s Community Grant program offers nonprofits with limited means the opportunity to use our event spaces, free of cost. We see mutual benefit: We want to help you accomplish your goals, and we want you to bring inspiring life to our event spaces. We partner with groups of all sizes to share the creativity and drive that make our community great.

The Redd is committed to creating a vibrant building that promotes equity and honors diversity. Preference is given to applicants who demonstrate a commitment to inclusivity around race, gender, class, and ability. We see this as an opportunity to hear the voices of underserved sectors of our region and provide a gathering place for meaningful exchanges. 

The application period for 2019 Community Grants will open in late 2018. Please check back for an application.
