Book your next meeting, private party, conference, workshop, or other gathering at L/A’s Franco Center

Let L/A’s Gendron Franco Center make your next venue the best yet with video projection, rich sound, dynamic lighting, and delicious catering and full service bar. With plenty of free parking steps from the door and Wi-Fi throughout the building at your disposal, we offer everything you need for your event.

The Franco Center has several options for your meeting, business gathering, employee training, client reception, or networking event. From a gathering of 10 to 250 people in our Heritage Hall to over 400 in our Performance Hall, we are well-equipped to meet your needs.

We have full sound and lighting capabilities in both halls to ably illuminate and amplify your presentation, seminar, or workshop. Both halls have video projection capabilities for multimedia presentations, with wireless microphones and a dance floor. Multiple speaker banks ensure even sound distribution throughout both halls. Your featured entertainment, whether a band, solo artist, or DJ, will never sound this good in any old function room.

Our full service catering is prepared by our own chef, allowing us to offer exceptional offerings from hors d’oeuvres to hearty entrees at competitive prices. Our bar service ranges from draft beers to customized wine lists, all the way to cordials, aperitifs, and cocktails.


The Franco Center makes it easy to have a party. Essentially, if you bring the guests, we can do the rest! We host birthday parties for guests-of-honor ranging from 16 to 100, graduation parties, showers, family reunions, and fêtes of all flavors. With a high-quality and modern sound system, playful dance floor lighting, a full bar, and in-house catering, our Heritage Hall is an ideal place for celebrating.

Cooperative Productions

We love working with local performing artists and organizations to offer a venue for their productions. Our partnerships over the years are many, and we are a proud supporter of our area’s rich talent.

Are you a performing artist or performing arts organization? Are you a proactive marketer with established fans and established means to reach them, such as a mailing list and a web presence? Do you have an exciting idea for a concert, performance, or event that you can’t wait to share with the world?

If you answered yes to ALL of these questions, then feel free to contact Richard Martin via email at rmartin@francocenter.org, the Franco Center’s program director with all of the pertinent details of your event, including three potential dates. We will be in touch if we find your ideas matching with our availability and interests.
