About Schauer Arts Center

Nestled in downtown Hartford, the Schauer Arts Center is a nonprofit regional center for the arts, making us Washington County's most unique special event venue. Filled with culture and history, the Schauer Arts Center was transformed from a 1919 canning factory into an architectural award-winning, state-of-the-art performing and visual arts center. With much of the building's industrial ambiance still intact, our facility showcases a distinct blend of old-world charm and contemporary elegance.

Great Place to have an event!! - An Eventective User from FOND DU LAC, WI

Had a baby shower of 40 guests in the art gallery. Other rooms available for larger groups and events. Everything was easy. Casey was responsive, helpful and did everything possible to make it a great event. Highly recommend!
