Note: All events require registration! Please check the event info in the calendar to find registration links.

The Rec Room

The Rec Room (Reading! Entertainment! Craft!) is a 600 sq ft community space in the back of Hammer and Jacks. We host music shows, story times, puppet shows, creative workshops, and more on our GIANT TV STAGE!

We strive to offer events that are accessible to all! Our events are typically by-donation with all proceeds going to the performer. No family will be turned away for lack of donation.

Health and Safety

Our store sees many young visitors, so we built this space with COVID in mind! We clean all spaces regularly and have powerful air scrubbers to grab germs from the air. 

To keep our most vulnerable visitors safe, we ask all visitors to wear a mask and be fully vaccinated. Performers and workshop hosts are required to wear masks if they will be interacting with participants. We limit capacity for all events (max 30) and book by bench (max 5 butts). 

Want to take the stage?

We love to work with awesome people of all kinds to offer low-cost and donation-based shows and workshops for kids in Portland. If you're interested in performing, teaching or sharing, we want to meet you. 🥳  Check out our Performer Info page for more details about the space and to get in touch.

Private Events

We miss celebrating birthdays and big days with you! Though we are not currently doing private events, we are working on bringing them back.

Is there a special day you want to celebrate at Hammer + Jacks? Email us with the details (date, occasion, # of guests) and we'll see what we can do!
