Private Parties & Meetings
For a truly unforgettable event, come to The Center for Visual and Performing Arts. We have the setting for you. The Center has been the site of bridal and baby showers, birthday and anniversary celebrations, retirement dinners, bar/bat mitzvahs, quinceañeras, confirmation and baptism parties. We also host weddings, banquets, dinner/dances, business meetings, and other gatherings of all sizes. Major corporations, small businesses, community organizations and area hospitals have all discovered the versatility and flexibility of hosting meetings at The Center for Visual and Performing Arts.
Your guests will enjoy exceptional dishes prepared in our own fully-equipped kitchen by Executive Chef Joseph Trama and his talented staff. Whether it's breakfast, lunch, a light snack, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, or dinner, our catering staff can present a delightful menu that will please your guests. Our attention to all the details will not only help to make your event unique, but also stress-free.
Our beautiful Dining Room features crystal chandeliers accented by three tiers of Tivoli lights encompassing the entire room. This room can be divided into smaller space to accommodate parties from 30 – 450 guests. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring to full view the scenic surroundings of The Center.
In addition to our elegant dining room, The Center is equipped with four additional spaces designed for smaller parties and events. The smallest of these upstairs is the Brass Tavern, which offers an intimate setting with floor to ceiling windows. The Brass Tavern is often used for family get-togethers during Sunday brunch. Just around the corner is The Meeting Room, a bright airy room with large windows and an outdoor terrace. The Meeting Room can easily accommodate 50 people and is the favorite location for showers and smaller dinner parties. Two additional rooms can be found on the lower level, accessible by elevator or from the building’s beautiful central spiral staircase. The Board Room, located at the base of the stairs, is the largest of these rooms. If your upcoming event anticipates 50 to 80 people in attendance, the Board Room is the place for you. The coziest of the rooms at The Center is the Green Room. It is beautifully furnished with upholstered sofas and chairs. The Green Room can comfortably hold 20-30 people.
