Facilities and Capacity
ASU Kerr Cultural Center is a lovely historic setting to host an indoor and outdoor wedding celebration. Many couples choose to host their wedding ceremony on the main lawn right in front of the entrance to the building. The building itself serves as a timeless wooden backdrop for your special ceremony. Inside these facilities, you will find that the event space may look historic, but it actually has modern amenities and the capabilities to host special events with up to 200 guests. This photogenic event space features all the sound and lighting equipment needed for your big event. Additionally, ASU Kerr offers different lighting styles you can use to set the scene, a dance floor for your guests to enjoy, and high speed internet indoors. ASU Kerr also offers spaces beyond the traditional event spaces. This venue offers a get ready room for the wedding parties to utilize before the event begins and throughout the celebration to freshen up. There is plenty of parking on-site for you, all your friends and your family.

History
ASU Kerr Cultural Center is a historic yet timeless adobe and wood home. This space was originally constructed by the legendary violist and composer Louise Lincoln Kerr in 1948 (home) and 1959 (venue). ASU Kerr was constructed with the intention that it would be used as a productive and social space for musicians and creatives to utilize over the years. This space currently operates as a distinguished performing arts venue and event space.

Services Offered
ASU Kerr is happy to house special events such as weddings, parties and more. This team welcomes insured outside vendors, is pet friendly for most events (with advance notice and some limitations), and rentals include the pro sound and lighting technicians for a high-quality function! The venue will provide all the tables, chairs, A/V and alcohol and bar service needed for your big day.

    Top Notch Event!

    Jeanne, Jarrod, Austen and all of the technicians involved provided the highest level of service from the planning stage through the evening of the event. Hosting 200+ people for a wedding comes with enough stress on its own but these wonderful people made things very simple and put us all at ease. The venue was beautiful, the lighting and sound system were second to none and everyone involved was fantastic. Thank you for making my daughter's wedding day absolutely perfect!

We had the privilege of photographing a couple of weddings here and it is absolutely wonderful. Stacey Bailey, Marketing and Special Events Coordinator, is also very pleasant to work with. We hope to photograph more weddings at ASU Kerr Cultural Center.
