The Moda Center is a $267 million multi-purpose arena that opened in the fall of 1995 as the Rose Garden, which remains an ongoing community icon in Portland. The arena serves as the home of the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers and WHL’s Portland Winterhawks.
In addition to basketball and hockey, the Rose Garden, and subsequently Moda Center, has played host to a wide variety of events such as concerts, family shows and other sporting events. The Rose Quarter was the host of the 2005 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. In 2009 & 2015 the first and second rounds of the men’s NCAA basketball tournament were hosted at Moda Center. Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters filmed his 2000 DVD In the Flesh — Live at Moda Center. The first ever concert held at the arena was David Bowie & Nine Inch Nails on October 25, 1995.
Moda Center also contains an intimate theater configuration called Theater of the Clouds that has played host to a variety of concerts and speakers.
Corporate branding rights to the Rose Garden were awarded to Moda Health on August 13, 2013, when the Portland Trail Blazers and Moda Health unveiled a community partnership. This new partnership gave a sponsored name to the Rose Garden, calling it the Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. Two of Oregon’s most dynamic and innovative companies, the Trail Blazers and Moda banded together in a 10-year partnership that has energized Portland’s hub for sports and entertainment, creating an urban showcase for healthy, active living. The two partners have developed a diverse set of initiatives and facility enhancements that serve as key connectors for the community and venue.
