Create Your Event
The Fairfield Community Arts Center, adjacent to beautiful Village Green Park, can make your special day unforgettable. From the sweeping Deco-inspired design of the lobby to the soaring glass walls of the Art Gallery, to the warmth and hospitality of the banquet room, your guests will enjoy our award-winning and distinctive venue.
Amenities in the Community Room include built-in service areas, an oak dance floor, a charming bay window, three vaulted ceilings, and private access to the balcony overlooking picturesque Village Green Park.
The Community Room provides an ideal setting for weddings, dinners, dances, luncheons, parties and business meetings. The 2,700-foot banquet room can seat just under 200 for dinner with a dance floor or can be divided into 3 smaller rooms for more intimate gatherings or meetings.
