Your Events are Special Events at the Clayton Center

Here at the Clayton Center, we enjoy hosting you for great fine arts and performing arts events. (Check out our regularly-updated events calendar for details.) But you don’t have to be a visiting artist or musical group to have your special event take place at the Clayton Center. Consider our unique features when you’re planning your next special event, and we can help you to make the event a success!

Lobby GalleryThe Clayton Center lobby - wedding and meeting rental raleigh nc
Our atrium-like Lobby Gallery has an airy, open feel to it. Gather a small group here for an impressive intimate setting, or use this space for up to 350 people for mingling, hors d’oeuvres and dancing. If the main floor is not enough space, or if you’re looking for a unique way to present your event, we have four terraces overlooking the main floor. If you can’t go ‘out’, we can go ‘up’!

Food Services
At the Clayton Center, flexibility is key to meeting your food and catering needs. We have no restrictions when it comes to catering; you can use the caterer of your choice. We also provide your choice of two kitchen areas for your use. The larger one and the smaller one have sinks and ample counter space to spread things out and prep for your guests. Our larger kitchenette also features a commercial refrigerator and an ice machine.

Put The Clayton Center To Good Use

One Time Use
We have many clients who choose to use our venue for a once-in-a-lifetime event. We’re a great location for bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, weddings, receptions, graduation celebrations, anniversary parties, retirement celebrations and much more!

Perhaps you work with a business that needs to get off site for some training or team-building activities. Our Conference Center provides a professional setting, with enough room for some fun activities if your event calls for it.

Regular & Repeat Events
Do you have a religious organization, social club, civic group or not-for-profit organization which meets on a regular basis? Ask about our discounted rates for regularly scheduled events. We have a space that’s the right size for you.

Look around The Clayton Center’s website and take a look at the photo gallery to get an idea of how we can make your next event, or series of events, successful and special.

Location
We are convenient to Raleigh and southeastern Wake County, with easy access to Durham, Chapel Hill, Zebulon, and other parts of Orange, Durham, Harnett, Lee and Johnston Counties.
