Located approximately 40 minutes northwest of Milwaukee, in the heart of the Kettle Moraine, the Schauer Arts Center is a performing and visual arts complex located in downtown Hartford, next to the Wisconsin Automotive Museum. Originally a canning factory, the building was built in 1918. After extensive renovations, the Schauer Center opened in February 2001, and now boasts the 571-seat Ruth A. Knoll Theater, the Suckow Family Art Gallery, The Lodge and Ante meeting rooms, a catering prep kitchen, rehearsal hall, dance studio, and Pikes Peak banquet room.

I started working here at the Schauer Center in 2019 as a server and moved my way up to managing events in 2021! Then when our Amy left I was promoted to the Director of Event Services.

The Schauer Center facility is a great facility to host a wedding. Ideal for mid size weddings, the Pike's Peak room overlooks downtown Hartford with a classy taste of Old town flair. Kathy is extremely easy to deal with and my wife and I chose the Schauer for our wedding reception venue. It was a great vailue and an easy choice for our Hartford area wedding.
