Wonder Ballroom Employee Relief Fund

With a Little Help From Our Friends -- Click "Read More" to see our donation rewards

It has been an honor and a privilege to host so much amazing live music and events in Portland for the past 16 years.

The power of music and community is what brings us all together at the Wonder. Those gatherings are now impossible due to the widespread ramifications of COVID-19.

We will be back to business as usual someday soon, but to ensure the health and safety of our amazing staff, fans and musicians alike, the Wonder Ballroom’s doors are closed for the foreseeable future.

The ripple effect of this unprecedented time poses a risk to our collective health as well as the financial state of many industries and communities.

The impact to the live music/touring industry, and specifically independent promoters and venues, is massive. This includes the 80+ part-time Wonder staffers that were recently laid off.

Our collective efforts to stay home in solidarity, for the health and safety of all Oregonians, means it will take a Herculean effort to start back up when we have the clearance from local government and feel comfortable to do so.

We welcome the privilege to continue bringing live music and events to you as soon as we can and now must humbly ask for your help in staying on our feet through these trying times.

We thank you in advance for your support and generosity in this time of need and are happy to offer exclusive rewards below in exchange for your donations.

100% of the net proceeds will go directly to support our incredible staff of dedicated bartenders, box office, security and production staff through this difficult time.

Thank you all from the bottom of our music-loving hearts.

Stay safe out there.
