Support Us / Facility Rental
Hayti generates a large portion of its annual revenue through facility rentals. In addition to the historic Performance Hall, rentals of the upper and main galleries, the community room, two classrooms, a dance studio, and office space with board room access are available at market rates for non-profit and commercial use. The dance studio is rented monthly.
The monthly fee for office rentals includes utilities, housekeeping, parking and wireless access.
Completed rental agreements and security deposits are required in order to reserve space for an event.
Technical support is provided by Hayti’s Technical Director who contracts directly with clients.
Whatever your business, social, or leisure plans, the Hayti Heritage Center can fit all occasions. Conveniently located at the corner of Fayetteville Street and Lakewood Avenue in the historic Hayti District, the Center is available for rent for your community or private event.
A National Historic Landmark, the facility is situated just off the Durham Freeway, 5 minutes from downtown Durham, 10 minutes from Duke University and the Research Triangle Park, just blocks from N C Central University, and provides free parking for its clients.
