My wife and I got married here Saturday February 18th. Like most couples, finding the right venue is perhaps the most difficult part of wedding planning. When researching, you will soon discover most venues restrict you on the vendors that they use, upon restriction, upon restriction. This was the one place where the venue allowed us to have a wedding we wanted with who we wanted. From the beginning, Lydia and I wanted to support local businesses and hire our friends and family to be involved with the wedding. We almost gave up, until Lydia found ASU online as this was the 15th or 16th venue we researched. We scheduled a meeting and took a tour.Sent on 02/21/2017
Our wedding was a music festival theme, how fitting that the venue is a theater. After the tour we had made up our minds, this is where we wanted to do it. Through the whole process, every single staff member that I came across was there to help. With Tracey, Camryn and Jarrod being the leaders and Matthew, Taylor, Jordan, Austin and Collin helping out in every which way possible. The staff here was astounding. In the preliminary meetings we gave them our idea and expressed that this would be nothing they have ever seen for a wedding, removing a vast majority of traditions.
On the day of, all of the staff were incredible. Despite the relentless rain (yup, it rained on our big day) we all pulled off a miracle. The best part about this venue is the lawn out front plus the use of the inside theater. If you're shopping for a potential wedding venue or any event. This is the place. This is Scottsdale's best kept secret. Discover it before it's too late.

Awesome venue and great environment
ASU Kerr Cultural Center was a great venue. The layout of the venue is so cool and made the wedding very intimate with all the guests. Not only that but the professional lights and sound system made the wedding that much cooler as they were able to create several different moods throughout the night. The staff was great and was very accommodating. Definitely recommend this place.Sent on 04/28/2019
