Venue Rental

Latest COVID-19 Update:  With regards to the latest update from Governor Jay Inslee on business meetings and training events, we are now able to host your business affairs in our facilities again. We are taking numerous extra precautions to ensure the safety of your guests and staff in attendance, and are happy to go over options and your preferences to bring you memorable experiences and accomodate every one of your needs.

Conveniently located across from the Federal Way Transit Center and a short drive’s distance from SeaTac Airport, our premier arts and events venue offers easy accessibility and spacious facilities to suit a diverse range of celebrations and social events. 

The Federal Way Performing Arts & Event Center represents a new caliber of event space in South King County. Sweeping views of Mt. Rainier and a diverse community are just a couple of the inspirations our culinary team have taken in developing a unique menu that represents the tastes of Western Washington. Whether you are having a quick breakfast meeting for 12 or a formal gala for 300, we can help make your event taste great and run smoothly. Ask us about creating a custom menu for your event today! Spectra Food Services & Hospitality is the exclusive caterer at the Federal Way Performing Arts & Event Center and provides culinary services for all events and functions within the facility.
