YBCA’s premiere location in downtown San Francisco and position as a contemporary art center makes for an ideal venue

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts’ coveted event space currently has openings for holiday rentals during the late 2011 and early 2012 season. YBCA’s outstanding downtown San Francisco event spaces are now available for corporations, associations and non-profits to book their company parties and gatherings for rental dates between November 23, 2011, and January 31, 2012. As a special incentive, YBCA is offering a 10% discount on venue fees for clients who book space during the above dates by October 31, 2011.

“Whether clients are hosting a holiday party for 600 guests or planning a company presentation for 100 attendees, YBCA’s premiere location in downtown San Francisco and standing as a contemporary art center make for an ideal venue,” said Lisa Elliott, YBCA’s events director. “And we still have some ideal dates available in December and January.”

YBCA houses two premier downtown San Francisco event venues, located along the west side of Third Street between Mission and Howard streets and adjacent to the Moscone Convention Center. YBCA is now offering holiday rentals in the two landmark buildings—the Galleries and Forum, designed by Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, and the Novellus Theater, designed by American architect James Stewart Polshek. The spaces consist of the 6,700 square-foot YBCA Forum, the 94-seat Screening Room and the Grand Lobby. The Novellus Theater has 757 seats plus the stunning Theater Terrace Lobby. Both buildings feature multiple event spaces that are specifically designed to accommodate a wide range of occasions, including community and corporate events.

“Due to its enormous popularity, holiday dates and spaces fill up very quickly at YBCA, so this is an excellent time to book one of the Bay Area’s top San Francisco party venues and take advantage of the discounted rate,” said Elliot. Standard rates for technical crew, house staff, and equipment rentals still apply.

Specialized services at YBCA include on-site coordination of event services, professional technical support provided by IATSE Local 16, audio/visual equipment rentals, professional lighting and sound systems, box office services, in-house security, telephone and data communications and preferred catering and vendor referrals.
