Where the community convenes
to experience the evolving human story.

Cerimon House is a nonprofit humanities and cultural arts organization, as well as a beloved event space, located in the heart of the NE Alberta Arts District of Portland, Oregon. Our ongoing programming is centered on: 

  • COMMUNITY: Gatherings that focus on the healthy civic life of the population.

  • CREATIVITY: The cultural arts brought to a vivid life in performance, craft, song, and word.

  • CURIOSITY: Educational classes, workshops, and conferences for students of all ages.

  • CEREMONY: Various & unique celebrations in a place of inclusivity and kindness.

We are a convening space for events that uplift the human story, and bring-about conversations that inspire. In our seventh year as an organization, our activities take place in a newly renovated historic neighborhood building, with gatherings, performances, workshops, lectures, ceremonies, and art exhibits, as well as and our monthly community event: The Creative Path Walks. We welcome your rentals, and have become a favorite community space for conferences, retreats, weddings & memorials, and many other celebrations.

Named after a kind & WISE character in an OLD SEA-FARING tale,
Cerimon [pronounced "sérra-mon"] is a GOOD neighbor known for being altruistic.
And it is in that very spirit that we welcome you to this house.
