Wedding of our dreams!

We loved the Oxbow beer garden as customers before choosing it as our wedding venue, and the staff's flexibility and personableness ultimately helped us decide to get married there.

Throughout the process, working with Rebecca was a dream 鈥撀爏he was always available to answer questions, especially as our vision was different than what other couples had done there in the past. She worked with us and our vendors every step of the way, and on the day of, everything came together exactly as we'd envisioned. The staff was incredibly friendly, attentive and organized, and multiple guests commented on how great they were throughout the night. The food was amazing, the bars and buffets never had long lines, and the entire day went off without a hitch, despite some unexpected rain storms that the staff handled swiftly and professionally.

I can't say enough good things about the team here and their dedication to making our wedding dreams come true. Thank you to Rebecca and all the Oxbow staff!

Beautiful event space in downtown Portland!

Great beer, great staff, great place! My husband and I are so glad we chose Oxbow for our wedding because they made it so easy! All we had to arrange ourselves was catering and a photographer (and even then, Oxbow staff met the vendors and coordinated all the drop offs and set up). Oxbow handled staffing, the bar, beverages, flowers, ambiance, tables, AV equipment, set up, clean up, and more, all included in the event space price! They were easy to work with and made accommodations for our budget and event specifications. Highly recommend for a good beer on a summer afternoon or to host the event of your dreams!

Oxbow Portland Welcome Party

We had our wedding welcome party at Oxbow in Portland and it was the perfect spot! Planning a big event with Oxbow was super easy, Rebecca was amazing to work with. Our guests loved the space and the beer! We also had Duck Fat frites from the shack, which were a huge hit! Would HIGHLY recommend having your wedding or event here.
