Private Events

Plan your FAR event

FAR has space for any type of event: your company holiday party, or your sister’s bridal shower. A three-day conference with breakout sessions and a keynote speaker, a photo shoot or a creative brainstorm with colleagues. A performance that spills onto Fourth Street, or a private film screening with local collaborators. FAR’s modern spaces and thoughtful amenities open up a world of possibilities for your event and its guests.

Ideal location

Located on the west end of the downtown Bloomington Entertainment and Arts District, Fourth and Rogers is walkable to bars, restaurants, and hotels, so your out-of-town guests won’t have to worry about driving, parking, or Ubering in an unfamiliar city.

Repurposed and Reimagined

Share the story of FAR with your guests: built in 1925 as a neighborhood grocery store, Fourth and Rogers has been completely repurposed for the Bloomington arts community. We rent the space for private events and weddings to financially support arts programming throughout the year.
