Important Traffic Alert for Tonight’s Metallica Concert and the Hometown Holiday Show at the Rose Quarter

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

Both Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for the Metallica concert and Hometown Holiday show starting at 7:00 p.m.

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 guests. Dr. Jack’s opens at 4:30 p.m., while the Schonely’s 10 Barrel Taproom will open its doors at 6:00 p.m.
