Did you know you can rent out the Jeanne Dini Cultural Center for your next event? Whether it’s a small gathering for a birthday shower, a larger gathering like a wedding or a reunion, or you have an event of your own you’d like to put on, we’re the perfect spot for a time you’ll never forget!

There are three categories of Center Rentals:

  1. Standard Rental: private or public events, programs, and activities.
  2. Community Use Rental: Community groups may schedule one to two hour meetings or rehearsal at a reduced fee. Request must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Priority will be given to cultural and arts related groups whenever possible. Fees may be waived for YTA members.
  3. School Use Rental: YTA is available for the school use for a maximum of 10 consecutive days per program, including rehearsals. All school use events and activities still require a completed rental application and payment of $200 for cleaning, maintenance, & garbage fee to be collected.  Fee may be waived if school provides youth and janitor to volunteer and complete these needed services. Priority will be given to cultural and arts related groups whenever possible.


A certificate of liability for a minimum of a 24 hour period of the date of your rental is required. This will be required within one week of the needed rental.
