Social Hours with Portland’s Funniest People

Posted 30 November 2015

Social Hours are events that connect the community with local artists throughout the season for casual happy hours at Portland Center Stage prior to a performance. Some hosting artists may perform briefly for 5-10 minutes during a Social Hour, but mostly it's a good excuse to socialize prior to a show.


Complimentary nibbles are provided at each Social Hour, and your first glass of beer or wine is on us! Social Hours are free and open to the public. No reservations necessary.
