The Memorial Coliseum is an indoor arena, the oldest part of what is now known as the Rose Quarter area within Portland, Oregon, United States. Known locally as the Coliseum, the arena is the home of the Portland Winterhawks, a minor league hockey team, and was the first home of the Portland Trail Blazers of the NBA.

The Memorial Coliseum was the home of the Portland Buckaroos of the Western Hockey League and was the venue for the 1965 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship, the site of the second of ten such championships won by UCLA in the 1960s and 1970s.

On Aug 22, 1965 the Beatles played two shows at Memorial Coliseum to 20,000 screaming fans as part of their '65 American Tour. Allen Ginsburg, who was in the audience, wrote a poem about this event called “Portland Coliseum”.
