We are intentionally different from just about every other place downtown. We cultivate a space where you’ll experience everything from local artists to avant-garde performances to pop up restaurants.

I’m excited to connect to State College’s amazing community through art and innovation!

Is 3 Dots the Right Fit?

Unique Setting

This is about as far from a boring old conference facility as you can get. We set out to create the most dynamic venue in town. One with a huge cool factor. And most importantly, one that your guests will not only appreciate, but talk about for years to come.

Welcome to All

We want 3 Dots to be accessible to everyone. With a mission to support artistic and innovative experiences, we encourage events and audiences of all types. If you’re booking our space, we trust you’ll be just as welcoming as we are.
