Facility Rental

At this time Cedarhurst is doing its best to minimize traffic in our indoor spaces, and therefore we are not renting our facilities for non-museum events.
We hope to change this policy soon as government guidelines ease and gatherings are once again considered safe. Please reach out if you have any questions. We appreciate your understanding.

Nestled on a beautiful 90-acre site in southern Illinois, Cedarhurst celebrates the arts year-round with exciting visual and performing arts programs for the public. The stunning architecture and grounds, including Cedarhurst Sculpture Park, make Cedarhurst Center for the Arts a unique and exciting backdrop for any occasion. Our recent expansion added a 3450 sq. ft. Performance/ Special Events Hall and a full commercial kitchen to the Mitchell Museum building. Through partnership with our approved caterers, we offer a variety of cuisine, styles, services and price ranges to fulfill your every need for a truly special event.
