    ABOUT

    Fremont Abbey is our main venue at 43rd & Fremont Avenue North in Seattle. The 1914 building was reopened in 2008 after undergoing major renovations including seismic, design, environment & visual improvements.

    Now a beautiful & welcoming multi-use venue with a warm vintage style, the Abbey welcomes up to 250 people for events of many varieties including nonprofit galas, private weddings, receptions, parties, meetings, workshops, classes and more.

    Support local music, the arts and other nonprofits by hosting your special event at Fremont Abbey!

    FALL 2020 SPACE USAGE FORM

     

    The Abbey features two large event rooms of differing styles, both re-purposed and restored with many historical & artistic elements.

    While no monks actually live here, the building retains a rustic historical atmosphere 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 you get to help sustain arts programs for 1000’s of local youth & adults each year in Fremont and beyond.

    We look forward to welcoming you for a tour!
