Weddings at PAFA

From 10-person private dinners to 400-person corporate functions to 1,000-person cocktail receptions, our spaces can be used in creative ways to meet your needs. You can feel good booking an event here—your rental fees go towards fulfilling PAFA’s mission of educating tomorrow’s artists.
