2024 Rip City Comedy Festival     |   Venue Directory 


Crystal Ballroom

1332 W Burnside St, Portland, OR 97209

The historic Crystal Ballroom enjoys national recognition for a reason. No local venue, and indeed few in the nation, can challenge this elegant ballroom’s more than 100 years as a premier place to hear live music, dance and have memorable experiences. The hall has seen countless first loves unfold, police raids, visits by silent screen idols and Beat poets, psychedelic light shows, narrow escapes from fire, demolition, and neglect, and a listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it is a vital, thriving McMenamins owned and operated live music palace that hosts everything from rock ’n’ roll and country, to hip-hop and big band swing.

Mission Theater

1624 NW Glisan St, Portland, OR 972094


Experience a slice of Portland history. What is now known simply as “the Mission” was originally home to the Swedish Mission Covenant congregation in the early 20th century, and despite its staid, buttoned up appearance, this place now hosts live music, video dance nights and special events on select nights each month.

Clinton St. Theater

2522 SE Clinton St, Portland, OR 97202

A landmark of Portland cinema history, The Clinton Street Theater is one of the oldest operating movie houses in the United States. The Clinton Street Theater has always been about community. We imagine ourselves to be the “Clubhouse of the Portland Anarchist Jurisdiction”—a place to come and be with friends and family; a place where strangers are only friends you haven’t met yet.


Famous for its long-standing exhibition of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, the theater is currently a magnet for independent/revival films, live music, theater productions, dance performances, sex positive theater & film, drag shows, comedy, burlesque, and more.
