Host a an Event in the Dock! 

The Dock is a public space within the Ashton building that can be used for public-facing events that support building more collaborative, entrepreneurial, and creative communities. We encourage events that are educational, inspirational, or networking focused to connect the tech, entrepreneurial, nonprofit, or arts communities. We cannot host events that political or religious.

Just remember, it’s always a fully public space and there will be ambient noise, passthrough traffic, and it cannot be fully closed off for a fully private event. In general, the rate is $150 per hour. Full pricing is available upon inquiry.

Get in touch with us and we’ll help direct you in the best direction for your event!



Events we do not host in the Dock include weddings, graduation parties, political events, and entirely private events (as we cannot fully close off the Dock to the public). All events for The Dock must be approved by the Millwork Commons events team.
