The Alberta Abbey is a new creative space and performance/event venue in NE Portland.

It houses a collection of collaborating artists and creatives and is the new home of

PDX Jazz, known for the "Portland Jazz Festival" and Portland Story Theater known for its "Urban Tellers."  Other groups affiliated with the Abbey include: Maverick Main Stage Productions, Curious Comedy, and The Attic.


The Abbey, originally built in 1924,  began as a church, below the surface of the street, the top section was built later in 1939. Alberta Abbey is now exclusively a creative space for the arts in NE Portland.


In June of 2012, the church was acquired by Alberta Abbey Fellowship (AAF) whose mission has been to restore, revitalize, and offer it up to the community for mixed use.


At the Abbey, we have spaces available for rent on a per-use basis, and encourage long term relationships with the local community to use the space in creative ways. The Abbey values non-profits' contributions to the community, and with that we offer special non-profit pricing for 501c3s.


Private offices related to the arts and design as well as studio spaces are available. These can be found under the tab labled "Space for Lease".  All together these spaces create a unique and vibrant community within the Abbey.
