The Hillcrest Center for the Arts has several facilities available for recitals, rehearsals, auditions, arts classes/workshops, performances, and arts events. We do not rent for private parties, meetings, fundraisers, or banquets/luncheons, but you may contact the Reservations department to see if CRPD can still help you host your event.
There is a $12 processing free for rental applications, and they take one week to process. You can download our fillable PDF application here. If you have questions about the form or our facility, you can call us at (805) 381-2747 or email us at email@example.com.
Please note that rental rates are valid only through June 30, 2023. New rates will be published as soon as they are approved by CRPD.
