The Building

Nonprofit Events Space for auctions, fundraisers, weddings, receptions, and other creative events. Major discounts for nonprofit organizations or local artists.

FREMONT ABBEY is a 100 year old brick building at 43rd & Fremont Avenue North that was reopened in 2008 after undergoing major structural & visual improvements and is now a beautiful & welcoming multi-use venue with a comfortable, warm, vintage style atmosphere. With two large event rooms of differing styles, both re-purposed and restored with many historical & artistic elements, your event can become a uniquely creative and sustainably designed experience.

While no monks actually live here, the building retains a rustic historical “Abbey like” feel while offering modern amenities and aesthetics. As part of our nonprofit mission, we partner mostly with local individuals and other nonprofits to create beautiful, artistic, and eco-friendly experiences for you and your guests. Plus, when you join the Abbey to create an event you help sustain our arts programs for many 1000’s of local youth & adults each year around the city. We look forward to welcoming you to the Abbey!


Not open for Sunday rentals after Noon.  Larger discounts available for nonprofits and artists groups on weekdays.


Free on street parking for concerts and events. Parking lots available with fee upon request   (locations vary).


Staff member present at events.
