It provides a collaborative, innovative event venue, public workspace, and programming hub designed to bring people together at every level. In 2016, District Hall hosted over 780 events and 80,000 people. The Venture Café Foundation was involved in the District Hall planning process and continues to manage operations and programming since District Hall’s opening in 2013.
