The Heyde Center for Arts is a gorgeous, versatile, historic building that is perfect for any occasion from large business conferences and workshops to small meetings, company parties and weddings.

We have a large auditorium with the advantage of flexible seating. It can seat approximately 240 people set up banquet style and 400 people set up theater style.

If you wish to hold both your ceremony and your reception at the Heyde Center for the Arts, we will take care of changing over the theater style set up to the banquet set up for you while you relax with family and friends. We also have a separate room for a buffet line and a full bar that can be staffed at an additional fee.

Also, if you want help to make it a hassle-free event, we have added Day of Coordination services that can be provided for an additional fee.
