Rent Our Space

Nestled in downtown Hartford, the Schauer Arts Center is a nonprofit regional center for the arts, making us Washington County's most unique special event venue. Filled with culture and history, the Schauer Arts Center was transformed from a 1919 canning factory into an architectural award-winning, state-of-the-art performing and visual arts center. With much of the building's industrial ambiance still intact, our facility showcases a distinct blend of old-world charm and contemporary elegance. 

The Schauer Arts Center is available for both public, ticketed shows and private, non-ticketed events. No matter your event, our professional staff will work closely with you to ensure your event receives a standing ovation. The Schauer Arts Center is perfect for: 

•  Weddings

•  Graduations & School Dances

•  Corporate Meetings & Presentations

•  Trade Shows & Expo-style Events

•  Holiday Parties

•  School Concerts

•  Rehearsal Dinners

•  Fashion Shows

•  Bridal & Baby Showers

•  Networking Events

•  Engagement Parties

•  & Much More!
