About our venue
Located in the Heartside Neighborhood near the intersection of Wealthy Street and Division Avenue and anchored by the 125-year old Cathedral of Saint Andrew, Cathedral Square is an 11.5 acre park-like area with indoor exhibition space. The square's outdoor gardens are beautifully landscaped and guests are welcome to meander the pedestrian-friendly, winding walkways.
Cathedral Square includes the cathedral, Cathedral Square Center/Wege Conference Center, Catholic
Central High School, Keeler Plaza, Wege Gardens and the Piazza Secchia in front of the Cathedral of Saint Andrew. Reminiscent of a European square where people gather for religious and community celebrations, Piazza Secchia is modeled after Michelangelo's Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome.
