Rent the Historic Beach Park Auditorium for Your Event

The historic 5,700 sq ft Auditorium is nestled between vast trees and hillside greenery, with the Des Moines Creek flowing gently by. It’s an ideal venue for large events of all types: weddings, trainings, meetings, seminars, launches, and more.

 The Auditorium features vintage stained-glass windows, cathedral ceilings with exposed wooden beams, and a wall of accordion doors that open to a spacious 1,800 sq ft tree-lined patio. It’s easy to layout the large, open space to suit your event; it offers a clean pallet for all your event decorations. The seating and table arrangement options are nearly unlimited.
