Sarasota Event Space Rentals

Lofty ceilings and plentiful natural light make the Sarasota Friendship Center a perfect location for a party, celebration of life, special event, fundraiser, reception or wedding.

Let Us Make Your Event Special

The Sarasota Friendship Center sits on a shady, park-like setting in downtown Sarasota. While the campus is busy during the weekday, it is available for event rentals on the weekend and in the evening, provided set-up is minimal. It is a beautiful location for your party, celebration of life, bar or bat mitzvah, corporate event, nonprofit event, fundraiser, reception or wedding. General liability insurance is required. All licensed caterers can provide the insurance.

Included in the rental are 12, five-foot diameter round tables and over 125 chairs. Bistro-style seating is also available. There is ample free parking, approximately 135 spots, and valet parking can be arranged for your event. You must see our beautiful space – indoors and out!

Schedule a visit

We would be delighted to show the space Monday – Friday, between the hours of 9:00 am – 11:00 am and 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm. After hours tours are also available.
