Schauer Arts & Activities Center
The Schauer Arts and Activities Center is truly a unique venue. This is not the typical banquet hall. Orange and green walls (no worries, they are subdued colors), a grand wooden staircase, exposed warehouse type ceilings, art gallery for your guests to mingle in, and if you’re willing to pay a little extra, a car museum for your guests to explore. The downside however is the bar selection and prices, as well as the extra 12% they tack on the catering bill.
Kathy was great to help us both in setting everything up, but as well as to provide for ANY and all requests we had. We had a great time with the setup, bars, the access to the car museum... it was all fantastic! Highly recommended!!!
Kathy is amazing! She was so helpful to us in making our dream wedding come true. We had a baseball theme and she even turned on the game for us so we could be updated through the reception! She always has great ideas and I would recommend her and the Schauer Arts Center to anyone!
Kathy is an absolute peach to work with. She is genuinely excited about any and all ideas that you and your husband-to-be will have. The only complaint we had was that the paperwork was really confusing & overwhelming at first and does take awhile to sort out. The facility itself is stunning and a wonderful mix of rustic (because it was an canning factory) and new (it was completely remodeled to become the auto museum & arts center). I would recommend this place to anyone!
When we first set foot in the facility, it was SO clean, beautiful, and overall, PERFECT, that I was certain it would be so far out of my budget that it would be out of the question. On the contrary, it turned out to be an unbeatable deal for the facility and services rendered. Kathy was so helpful and handled our (MANY) emails in a very professional way. She was also so helpful in terms of helping to recommend and find other vendors and services and helped us to work with them so that they would stay within our budget! Kathy also worked very hard to make sure that the day of our event was ass stress free as possible. Our only frustration (which wasn't completely their fault) was the mandatory cash bar and the expenses it ensued the day of the wedding because our minimum tab wasn't met by our guests.s However, Kathy worked with us ahead of time to make this minimum tab alcohol free and as affordable as possible! I would recommend the Schauer Arts Center to ANY bride-to-be!!
well first they do a great job and Kathy will make your day very special for ya!
very nice place to have a wedding...
The Schauer Center facility is a great facility to host a wedding. Ideal for mid size weddings, the Pike's Peak room overlooks downtown Hartford with a classy taste of Old town flair. Kathy is extremely easy to deal with and my wife and I chose the Schauer for our wedding reception venue. It was a great vailue and an easy choice for our Hartford area wedding.
Located approximately 40 minutes northwest of Milwaukee, in the heart of the Kettle Moraine, the Schauer Arts & Activities Center is a performing and visual arts complex located in downtown Hartford, next to the Wisconsin Automotive Museum. Originally a canning factory, the building was built in 1918. After extensive renovations, the Schauer Center opened in February 2001, and now boasts the 571-seat Ruth A. Knoll Theater, the Suckow Family Art Gallery, The Lodge and Ante meeting rooms, a catering prep kitchen, rehearsal hall, dance studio, and Pikes Peak banquet room.
