Where to stay

We have a limited room block with The Society Hotel, a boutique hotel that's 0.7 miles (14 minutes walking) from our venue. The Society Hotel has a small but fantastic cafe in the lobby and offers hostel rooming as well. To get in on the room block ($149 per night for a stay from Oct 6-9), just email us after your ticket purchase. Update: our rooms have sold out!

If proximity is a priority, our venue happens to be directly across from the Residence Inn Portland Downtown/Pearl District.

Getting here

The Ziba Auditorium is on 801 NW Marshall St, between NW 9th and NW Station Way.

Public transit

TriMet is our local public transit, which encompasses the bus, MAX light rail, and streetcar. We’d highly recommend their handy trip planner and real-time arrival tracker.

The closest stops are:

  • NW 10th and Northrup: Streetcar B Loop and NS Line
  • NW 9th and Lovejoy: Streetcar A Loop
  • Union Station: MAX Green and Yellow lines


The closest parking garage is the Station Place Garage on NW 9th and Marshall (0.1 mile/2 minutes from the venue), with a daily max of $8. Street parking nearby is largely limited to 3-hour parking (for $2/hour).

Portland's primary carsharing service is car2go.


There is bike parking all around and a Biketown bike share station at NW 10th and Marshall (at Tanner Springs Park), where you can rent bikes for $12/day.


The best local cab option is Radio Cab. There is also Uber and Lyft available.
