Advertise with Portland'5

Portland’5 brings nearly 1,000 music, theater, dance, and lecture performances to Portland each year because we know art matters. Art brings joy, inspires the mind, and unites communities. Art changes lives. As the 5th largest performing arts center in the U.S., we are national leaders in keeping art culture thriving.

Over 1 million people came downtown to experience the arts in the 2018-2019 season. 56% of our patrons have expressed the wish for more business advertising within the Portland’5 venues, stating they would be more likely to purchase services from businesses who advertised with us. That’s over half a million people looking for places to spend their money!

How do you capture this valuable population and ensure their patronage at your business?
