Renton Pavilion Event Center

The Renton Pavilion Event Center is located in the heart of downtown Renton, just 15 minutes from Seattle and Seatac Airport. We’re situated close enough to the city to remain at a convenient traveling distance, but far enough away to avoid the hassle of limited parking. At 10,000 square feet, the event center can be designed as the perfect space for both large and intimate events.


Summerfest is a free appreciation event designed to recognize the dedicated residents of Renton and bring the community together for a day of fun and celebration.
