Update: Small Bags Only – No Backpacks


The Rose Quarter has updated their policy to also not allow small “fashion backpacks” that have become popular substitutes for purses and other handbags, even if they fit inside the 14″ x 14″ x 6″ size maximum.

  • NO: Backpacks
  • NO: small “fashion” backpacks
  • YES: single-pocket, draw-string bags that fit within the 14″ x 14″ x 6″ size maximum.
  • YES: Medical and Diaper Bags that are within the 14″ x 14″ x 6″ size maximum. (but they will be searched and tagged by security)



As a part of the Rose Quarter’s on-going commitment to fan security and safety, the Rose Quarter has implemented a “Small Bag Only” policy for all events including Winterhawks games, in both the Moda Center and VMC.  This means that no bags larger than 14 inches wide, by 14 inches tall and 6 inches deep  and NO BACKPACKS will be allowed into the venues.  This policy is in place for every bag brought into the arena including purses , diaper bags, totes and medical equipment bags.  This policy will is currently in-place and strictly enforced at all Rose Quarter Events including Portland Winterhawks games.

There are no exceptions, so please plan accordingly.
