“Mechanics’ Hall is emerging as one of the very best venues in the state for community events that celebrate creativity and innovation. Full of warmth, history, and the thrill of possibility, it is something to be treasured and supported.”

-Lily King, author

Mechanics’ Hall is one of Portland’s cultural treasures, and we are committed to ensuring that it remains open to the public. 

Please help us provide our community access to our library & reading room, inspiring programming, elevated discourse, and more with a gift today. 

Our programs and the restoration of our historic building depend upon your generosity.  We are so grateful for your support!

“I feel incredibly lucky to dance at Mechanics’ Hall, a place that has held swing music between its walls for a century and to share it with such a sweet community of people.”
