Beautiful river view, convenient location near Ohio Stadium, value and affordability – the Drake Performance and Event Center offers an iconic presence on Ohio State’s campus. The building’s easy-to-find location along Cannon Drive provides guests with quick and easy entrance access. Also home to the Department of Theatre, The Drake offers multifaceted event options from professional performance space and reception areas to spots that are perfect for tailgating, both indoor and outdoor. Featuring charming woodwork, newly-renovated finishes and comfortably flexible spaces, The Drake is a great option when an event calls for a non-traditional, unique environment.
