Rent the Community Room at McMenamins Kennedy School
Looking for a memorable site for a special occasion, a baby shower, graduation celebration, a quiet space for a business retreat, or ongoing classes? The Community Room at McMenamins Kennedy School is just the place. Enjoy the charm of hosting an event in a former elementary classroom complete with original wood floors, old school chalk boards, lots of natural light and access to food and drink.

As you may know, the community room is managed by the Concordia Neighborhood Association (CNA) and I currently do the scheduling as a volunteer.
All funds raised from CNA Community Room rentals go right back into the CNA community.
The room is 25′ x 35′. There are 49 stacking chairs, 6 armchairs and 6 lightweight folding tables. The room is all self set/clean up including removal of all trash. You can bring in your own food but no outside catering companies are allowed.
NO food may be delivered to the Community Room (i.e.; pizza). You can also order food through Kennedy School restaurants.
Any alcohol MUST be purchased from Kennedy School. Know that if you do buy food/beverage from Kennedy School their staff does NOT bus the room. You must bus the dishes to the nearest restaurant or bar as part of your cleanup duties.
You are 100% responsible for room clean up, including trash removal, so please bring proper supplies. Also note, the time you book should include setup and breakdown of your event.
The maximum capacity of the room is 50 people.
The Concordia Neighborhood Association promotes and administers the room as a community center for the benefit of the neighborhood. There are NO food/beverage purchase requirements. Proceeds help sponsor cultural, educational and social activities.
Thank you kindly,
Community Room Manager
