About Schauer Arts Center

One Venue. Unlimited Possibilities.

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.

For more information, or to set up a tour of our facility, please contact our Event Services Coordinator, Jessica Helmer, at jessica@schauercenter.org or call 262-670-0560 x215.

The Schauer Arts Center is a fantastic space for a wedding, and their event planning staff, especially Jessica Helmer, were absolutely amazing with keeping track of all of the parts of my event and really making me feel at ease going into my wedding day. Jessica was always available for any questions, no matter how small or how many times I had asked it. The movement from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception was absolutely flawless, and the venue’s bar staff were attentive and really helped make all of our guests feel at ease and enjoy themselves. Jessica’s hard work really made my wedding day the best day of my life. I would absolutely recommend this venue and their wonderful event team to any bride looking for a very memorable wedding.

This venue was so beautitful. It was so unique to have our wedding ceremony in the theatre. It was also nice to rent out the Wisconsin Auto Museum for our guests to explore during the cocktail hour. Jessica, the event coorinator, was super helpful throughout the entire process. It is nice that you are able to find your own caterer and the bar prices are decent. You can't go wrong with this venue!!

I am so grateful that I selected the Schauer Center for my wedding. Brandon made the entire wedding planning a breeze and was available to answer any questions. Brandon was extremely easy to work with and went above and beyond for us. The day of the wedding was the same. Anything I, my husband or anyone else in the bridal party needed he was there. Seriously, I can't put any more emphasis on how easy Brandon was to work with and how seamless the made the day. Nothing but impressed!

well first they do a great job and Kathy will make your day very special for ya! very nice place to have a wedding At!

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.
