Host your private event at the historic Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts. Originally a train depot, this 105 year old building has unique, rustic charm and acts as a blank canvas for your special event.

The Art Depot is a community building. A private party or wedding hosted here means the renter is responsible for all their own catering, set-up and take-down of tables, chairs, bar(s), and/or stage. A general courtesy cleaning, including taking the trash out to the dumpsters, cleaning up any cups, napkins, plates, cigarette butts and so forth, is also required. The Art Depot does have a cleaner come in and do the deep cleaning, including mopping the floors. A renter's security deposit will not be returned in full if our cleaners have to spend additional time picking up any trash or items left in or around the Depot.

A private party evening rental is $495. This allows renters to access the Depot Baggage Room around 4:00pm, set-up and use the Depot Baggage Room through the evening, specifically midnight.

An all day rental is $975. This allows you to use the Depot the entire day.

The Baggage Room, alone, will seat about 125 people. If you are planning a sit-down dinner for more than this number, you should consider renting the front gallery. This space can be used for bar service and cocktail receptions. The fee to rent the gallery is an additional $250.

For rental of either or both spaces you will also need to pay an additional damage deposit of $200. This damage deposit also includes your key deposit. This deposit is returned or your check is torn up within a week after rental, as long as there is no permanent damage, the key is returned and a courtesy cleaning is completed after your event and before the next users access the building.
