About Us

The Franco Center has become one of Lewiston/Auburn's greatest assets.
The magnificent facility is active and thriving with a combination of uses, including a state-of-the-art 428-seat Performance Hall, a multi-functional event/banquet hall, the Franco-American Heritage Museum, a French language library, and ongoing language and cultural learning center programs.
With its full-service bar and banquet services, Heritage Hall is a popular and comfortable venue for weddings and receptions, family celebrations and memorial services, dances, concerts, theatrical productions, reunions, corporate meetings and banquets, and showers.
The mission of the Franco Center is to provide comfortable spaces for the performing arts, cultural events, gatherings, and to celebrate and preserve the rich Franco-American heritage in our communities, while welcoming and supporting the cultures of all who live here.
