PP&R will once again be holding a lottery for 2019 wedding locations and dates.
The wedding lottery will establish a list of who will be contacted first to receive their desired wedding date and location in Portland's parks and natural areas. You can participate in the lottery to try and secure your favorite location and date, or wait until after January 1, 2019 and place your reservation online.

  • Monday, November 19 - We will begin taking wedding lottery requests at 8:00am.
  • Thursday, December 13 - We will stop accepting wedding requests into the lottery at 5:00pm.
  • Friday, December 14 - The drawing for the wedding lottery will take place at 10:00am - held live on Facebook.
  • Monday, December 17 - PP&R will begin processing lottery requests beginning at 8:00am.
  • Wednesday, January 2 - PP&R Customer Service Center opens for general wedding requests for 2019.

Portland Parks & Recreation is the proud steward of more than 200 parks, gardens, and natural settings that can be reserved for weddings and/or receptions. These lovely settings are the perfect locations for ceremonies and celebrations. A few things to know:

  • While weddings may be scheduled at a picnic site, receptions cannot be scheduled in a wedding garden (only the ceremony portion).
  • City code requires that a permit be obtained for any wedding in a public park where guests are invited. Permits are issued by the Portland Parks & Recreation Customer Service Center. 
  • Weddings are not permitted at the Japanese Garden, Pittock Mansion and surrounding acres, or Portland International Raceway.
  • Check the wedding brochure for locations, fees, policies, insurance, and reservation information.
  • Review this list for unavailable booking dates by location - make sure you don't pick these dates!
