Important Rose Quarter Traffic Alert for Saturday March 3

Guests traveling to the Rose Quarter tomorrow are strongly encouraged to arrive early and plan ahead for venue entry with both Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum holding events.

Moda Center doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the 7:00 p.m. Trail Blazers game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Veterans Memorial Coliseum doors open at 7:00 p.m. for the 8:00 p.m. Santana concert.

Guests should factor in additional time to clear security checkpoints entering both venues. Any bags carried into Moda Center or Veterans Memorial Coliseum may not exceed the size limit of 14x14x6. While those dimensions fit most purses and handbags, most backpacks will exceed that limit and should be left at home.

Upon arrival, the Rose Quarter will feature several food and beverage options readily available for fans. Dr. Jack’s opens at 4 p.m., while the Schonely’s 10 Barrel Taproom will open its doors at 4:30 p.m.
