Your Safety, Our Focus

During these unprecedented times, we want to assure you that Venue 252 is committed to the health and wellness of our clients, guests and staff, as well as to the quality of our safety standards.

Over the past 5 years, our company has achieved excellent results in all of our health department inspections regarding food, safety and service standards. Our culinary and event managers are all ServSafe certified, an accredited program for sanitation knowledge and practices. All Venue 252 employees have attended Safety, Infection Control and Sanitation Training.


To ensure compliance

with Oregon Health Authority (OHA)

You may include up to *210 guests in a single event at Venue 252. In addition, guests must be grouped into parties of 10 or fewer. Each party must maintain a minimum of 6 feet of distance between themselves and other parties attending the same event. Floor plans are designed to ensure required social distance spacing, while allowing flexibility for dancing, networking and other popular activities. Our coordinators can assist in designing activities that may be a good fit for attendees at your event under these restrictions.

*estimate; actual maximum dependent on floorplan and staffing needs. Guests and staff cannot exceed 250 people per event. OHA may limit your group size to fewer than 210.
