Portland Graduation: The Banquet

Dates and Times

Our Celebration Banquet will be on Friday, April 20, 2018 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Airport. 
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will be served promptly at 7 p.m.
We anticipate that the program will end around 9 p.m.


In keeping with the elegance of the evening, Celebration Banquet attendees are asked to dress up.
Men usually wear jackets and ties, and women generally wear skirts or dresses.


Western Seminary encourages guests not to bring children under the age of five, or older children who cannot sit quietly for extended periods of time. Mothers of nursing infants are welcome to bring their infants.

Entree Option

Our entrees will be available for selection soon. You will be able to choose from several options and we will accomodate GF/DF needs. Please check with each of your guests prior to purchasing tickets. 


Tickets will be available for purchase in the Spring via EventBright.com. A link will be provided on this page and via email once sales open.  

Each graduate will receive two complimentary banquet tickets. Additionally, Western Seminary will subsidize additional tickets for several guests to bring with you. We will share more information on number of guests and ticket rates at a later date.

Tickets are available on a first-come first-serve basis, and as such we regret that we cannot reserve tickets. We cannot guarantee ticket availability beyond April 10th, but if you have an emergency, please contact Michelle Workman (This email address is being protected from spambots.
