Refuge PDX is Portland’a premier audiovisionary center — A space for artists, musicians, retailers, dancers, and communities to congregate and create. This year, Refuge is Closer Festival’s hub, with multi-stage Friday and Saturday night showcase events featuring some of the festival’s biggest headliners.

A fully adaptable space, able to drastically transform for a variety of needs, Refuge has been known as a warehouse club space, hosting national and international music talent of every type. It’s been known as an event loft, hosting avant-garde parties and A-list after parties going well into the night. It’s been known as a visual art center, hosting exhibitions of paintings, photography, sculpture, and large scale installations. But these events are merely our past. We want you to come to Refuge and help to create our future.
