The Transit-Community Center is located at 601 W. Franklin Street, Shelton, WA.  It is an ideal location for private, public, or non-profits that want an event to be in the heart of quaint downtown Shelton and accessible by car, public transit, bikes, or walking distance from local county and city government offices, shopping, restaurants, the library, schools, and other private business offices. It is also five minutes from Highway 101 and Highway 3.  The center features event space at affordable rates.  Secure your space today, reservations required!


Event space available is a 5,238 sq. foot gymnasium with bright natural lighting and beautiful hardwood floors.  It includes a sound system, projector and screen, podium and mic, up to 40 round tables that seat six and 240 black event chairs (at no extra charge!).  There’s also a 2,454 sq. foot atrium for al fresco style events, and the gymnasium can be opened up to include the atrium.  Just off the event space is a spacious 1,300 sq. foot double commercial kitchen with serving area that seats 25-30.  If you have a smaller event or meeting we offer a 800 sq. foot conference room with tables and chairs included, plus a state of the art 64″ monitor for presentations.
