Plan Your Event at the Forbes Center

Hosting a Group

A group outing with classmates, colleagues, friends or family is the perfect way to socialize and enjoy spectacular music, dance and theatre performances in a 5-Star setting. The Forbes Center offers your group the best entertainment option in the Shenandoah Valley. Your group will enjoy spectacular performances in state-of-the-art performance venues, along with beautiful lobbies and free parking just steps away from the Forbes Center entrance.

Pre/Post Performance Receptions

Groups can arrange additional services to enhance their events. Options include pre- or post-show receptions, facilitated discussions about the show, backstage tours or pre-show “Insider” introductions. You may incur added costs for these services.

If you wish to host a pre- or post-show reception, we are proud to work with Aramark as our official caterer. Events held in conjunction with a performance (with a minimum of 25 or more tickets) can be hosted in one of our lobby spaces. Private reception rooms are not available. Catering and set-up fees will apply. Space is subject to availability. We are not able to host events that do not include a group ticket purchase.
