THE ART OF ENTERTAINING

 HOST YOUR NEXT EVENT AT THE PATTERSON-APPLETON ARTS CENTER
The Patterson-Appleton Arts Center is an ideal venue for any event. Built in 1929 and located between Denton’s Downtown Square and emerging innovation district, this historic building was originally the city’s steam power plant. Renovated in the 1980s, the Arts Center now offers two large galleries, art studio, dance rehearsal hall, and sculpture garden. The centerpiece of the venue is Festival Hall, a 5000 square foot event and exhibition space with soaring ceilings and original industrial hardware.

The Arts Center is a unique and creative location to host your wedding reception, business event, birthday party, anniversary, or organizational training or retreat. With a variety of options for caterers, décor, and musicians, the Arts Center is popular choice for residents across North Texas.

To assure availability, make reservations early. To schedule a walk-through of the space, please contact the office of Operations and Special Events at facilities@dentonarts.com or call 940.382.2787. Rentals can be made during normal business hours.

Rates vary according to non-profit and private use; rental discounts are available for Arts Council members.
