Shadelands Arts Center

East Bay



The Shadelands Arts Center offers an open auditorium fit for up to 300 guests. This Walnut Creek event space, with an open ceiling and gorgeous wooden floors, is perfect for any sized dance floor. Typically used for theatrical presentations, the acoustics offer just the right sound. The state-of-the-art lights can highlight the finest detail or cast a particular color adding to a specific theme. A projector and projection screen are also available for an additional fee. The open space is like a blank canvas with light-colored walls and a ceiling that can be transformed with just about any type of cloth or decor. An enclosed, private patio adjacent to the building can also be used as an extended reception area.
