Rent our Space

BlackRock Center for the Arts is a unique and beautiful building in the heart of Germantown.

With over 30,000 spectacular square feet that incorporates two theaters, a rooftop patio, soaring ceilings and room after room bathed in natural light, BlackRock is perfect for your next event, big or small.

Planning a wedding? Imagine the bride walking down our storybook-like grand staircase to a ceremony on our Main Stage, or take it outside to our Outdoor Stage with guests on the lawn, before an unforgettable reception in the Studio Theater with banquet-style seating and a bartop. For an extra touch of class, our Steinway grand piano is available for your pianist to entertain your guests.

Host a birthday party, Quinceañera, Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah in our Terrace Studio with easy setup for catering and a beautiful Outdoor Patio, or turn the Studio Theater into your private club with built-in dance floor and professional lighting.

BlackRock is also ideal for a business meeting in our Conference Room adorned with fine art by top regional artists, or host a full-on corporate retreat - our Main Stage is perfect for a seminar, keynote or motivational talk, with up to four smaller classrooms upstairs for breakout sessions.

"BlackRock was a fantastic venue for our wedding reception. Cindy the event coordinator was great at communicating and helping us out from deciding on the lighting settings in the dance hall to helping us to come up with a table layout that would maximize the use of the space.

My husband and I were nervous about it being upcounty since our ceremony was taking place in Silver Spring and most of our events take place near Silver Spring but everyone loved the space and found the drive incredibly worth it. We used the lobby for cocktail hour and were able to set up a projector to show a love story video and had a photobooth also. Overall the space is incredibly versatile, you make it whatever you want...."
