In addition to our own programming, the Rainier Valley Cultural Center provides rental space to community organizations, cultural groups, stage performances, workshops, recitals, civic events, graduation ceremonies, and other events.
If you are interested in renting the Auditorium, the Event Room, or the entire facility, to check for date and time availability. After obtaining your information, we will issue a rental contract. Upon receipt of payment of the security deposit, one fourth of the agreed upon rental rate, and the signed contract, the event will be confirmed on our calendar. For events with technical requirements please submit a tech rider.
