Facilities and Capacity

Other pendant lights of the same size and shape sit at varying artistic heights within this larger circle to give the piece depth and added individuality. Couples can play with drapery, decor, and lighting in this space to change its appearance and tone for their wedding. In this venue they will also find modern accents such as large light up letters in the bridal suite and a geometric cement staircase.

Even couples who hire an outside event planner or choose to be more hands on with their wedding can take advantage of the setup and cleanup services offered at this ballroom. Additional services found at this venue include:
The building that now houses the Canvas Event Center was built in the mid-1950s as a warehouse. At one point in its industrial days it even served as a crane repair station. Shortly after the turn of the century, the warehouse was renovated and became a contemporary art space. From there, it became the unique wedding venue it is today.

Beautiful Venue, but stayed anxious
This venue turned out to be SO BEAUTIFUL on our big day! We had some good experience with a lot of their staff, but some were so difficult to get ahold of. Which is why I stayed anxious. My correspondence with them was on and off depending on who I contacted. Sometimes having to email at least 3 times before getting back a response.
With that being said, those I had met were always courteous and accommodating. They even let us use some of their table rounds to help us save money on rentals! I wish they would’ve let us drop off some of the wedding rentals/decor/flowers earlier in the day without having to pay for just dropping it off, but that would be my only complaint.Sent on 10/20/2019

The place was great as I had a very creative team and the flexibility to bring in our own vendors was awesome. Would have liked to be able to get some of the details down sooner and the responsiveness was always delayed but otherwise the venue beautiful at the end of the day.Sent on 09/07/2019
