About

Guests 5 to 400

The nonprofit World Forestry Center is dedicated to creating and inspiring champions of sustainable forestry. The world needs trees and forests on so many levels and it’s our job to educate professionals and the general public that trees are integral to our well-being. It’s an important mission and one we don’t take lightly. You help us support that mission by renting our facilities.

Located in Portland's beautiful Washington Park, the World Forestry Center is conveiently located just 10 minutes from downtown and directly on the MAX Light Rail Line. We have all the things you need to create your perfect urban forest wedding: venues with stunning wooden interiors and polished stone floors, an experienced staff that is dedicated to making your event a success, and a large preferred caterers list so you have many budget and menu options. But we are more than buildings and service. We are champions of trees. And we hope that you will be too.

    Perfect Romantic Venue

    We had our ceremony and reception both in the Miller Hall at the World Forestry Center in Portland. Everything was perfect, and we are so grateful to them! Angie and Adara, the coordinators, are super helpful, very quick to respond to all of your questions, and I loved working with them! The space is perfect for someone looking for a romantic, PNW feel with moody lighting. We absolutely recommend!

    Angie and Allison answered every little question we had, valued our opinions after the wedding and had the venue set up perfectly! The venue and people were amazing- I couldn't say a single negative thing!

    We had our wedding at Miller Hall and had a wonderful experience. The venue is beautiful, the staff are super friendly. We planned our wedding out-of-state, and everyone was very responsive and easy to work with. We have only great things to say about the World Forestry Center. Thank you so much!
