Located in the heart of historic Covington, KY, The Carnegie is one of the Tri-State’s premier arts and events venues. The Carnegie building includes many spaces to accommodate a wide range of events and performances.

Built in 1902, The Carnegie is an exemplar of the Beaux Arts style of architecture popular at the turn of the 20th century. It features a circular balcony and open rotunda overlooking the main floor. Above that is an impressive amber glass dome, as well as two floors of gallery space connected by dual ornately carved winding staircases. The Carnegie also features a fully restored theater modeled after a 19th century French opera house which features historically revived murals and plaster work in addition to modern amenities like air conditioning and plush comfortable seating.



The Carnegie Galleries provide a number of spectacular spaces for your special event. Whether you are hosting a reception for 150 or a corporate lunch for 50, the unique event spaces in The Carnegie will make your event unforgettable.



The Eva G. Farris Education center is fit for rehearsals, meetings, and as auxiliary space for theatre rentals.
