Venue Overview

About The Redd

The Redd is a venue with a rich history and a mission centered around sustainability and community. The building itself was minted circa 1918 as an ironworks factory.

Onsite amenities like a catering kitchen and ready room make this space ideal for weddings. The Redd is managed by Ecotrust, an organization that manages multiple wedding and event venues around Portland.
