Most spaces within the Center are available for rent. Our private rooms can host your meetings, luncheons, dinner parties, weddings, memorial services, and receptions. The floor-to-ceiling windows of the Krannert Room and the rich carpets and ample tables of the Tryon Festival Theatre Foyer provide the ambience ideal for meetings, displays, receptions, or cocktail parties. When production schedules allow, we regularly book events on the theatre stages, which offer extraordinary spaces to make your function special—and don’t forget about the expansive Lobby!
