Have your party at Kennedy School

We also host weddings & meetings

Want to leave an impression on your group? Then book the Kennedy School for your next client meeting, alumni reunion, employee retreat, birthday party or what-have-you — because how often do you get to convene at a former elementary school that offers onsite guestrooms, a restaurant, bars, a brewery and more? Not to mention free Wi-Fi, a movie theater for large-scale presentations and a soaking pool for post-event relaxation.

Not only is the Kennedy School a unique and memorable spot, but it is conveniently located just 10 minutes from the Portland International Airport and 15 minutes from downtown Portland.
