PPS High School Graduations at Providence Park
For the third year in a row, Portland Public Schools will hold high school graduations at Providence Park, home stadium of the Portland Thorns and Timbers professional soccer teams. After years of holding ceremonies at Memorial Coliseum, PPS held drive-through celebrations in 2020 after finishing the school year with home-based distance learning because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The district returned to in-person ceremonies in 2021, going to an outdoor setting and requiring facemasks to help mitigate the spread of the coronvirus. The venue proved popular, and we are proud to return there in 2023.
Attending a Ceremony
To attend a ceremony in person, you will need a ticket, which will be issued through the graduate's school. More on ticketing, stadium rules and other information on each school will be announced later in the school year.
1844 SW Morrison Street
Parking & Transportation
Providence Park does not have on-site parking, but there are limited pay lots nearby. We will have more guidance on how to get to the stadium.
For reference, please see the Timbers' recommendations on getting to the stadium and parking. These are meant for game-day transportation, but they give you an idea of what you should plan for.
