Renting The RAC at Rutgers? We Can Help

Events at
The RAC

The Rutgers Athletic Center, better known as The RAC, has been the home of Rutgers basketball since it opened more than 40 years ago.

Today, the space is being use for more than just athletics events.

The 8,000-seat arena has hosted a variety of other university events, including wrestling matches, gymnastics meets, and the annual Rutgers University Dance Marathon.

But you don't have to be organizing a Rutgers event to host at The RAC.

This facility is available for public rental throughout the year. With its drop-down video board, LED boards and signs, and full air-conditioning system, the RAC is ideal for trade shows, speaking events, concerts, and other special events that require a large space.

If you're looking to rent The RAC for an upcoming concert, trade show, or other event, you'll likely need some help from outside vendors. The Hurricane Productions team are experts in this space, and we'd love to help you bring your vision to life.

Lara and Dustin - Waterloo Village Stanhope, NJ Wedding

Lara and Dustin Plutzer celebrated the start of their future together with a little slice of the past. The couple and their guests gathered in Stanhope, NJ's Waterloo Village, a restored 19th-century canal town that provided a romantic and historical backdrop for their fall wedding.

The soon-to-be newlyweds got ready with their respective wedding parties and shared a toast with them to kick off the day's events. Lara and her bridesmaids convened in Waterloo's charming bridal cottage before the bride met her groom on the gorgeous Village grounds for their first look. The couple said their "I do's" in a beautiful outdoor Jewish ceremony, and then headed to the recently-renovated Waterloo Village Meeting House for a fun-filled reception.

The Plutzers hired Hurricane Productions videographers Brandon Perera and Tyler Ajamian to capture their wedding day on film. As part of their package, the couple received a 60 to 90-minute edit of their full-day coverage, as well as a 3 to 4-minute highlight video.

Hurricane also provided entertainment for the evening by MC and DJ Brian Buonassissi, along with Twin Totem lighting and a photo booth set up by lighting director Nick Nittoli.

Hurricane Productions offers a full suite of media and entertainment services for your wedding day. Visit our wedding pricing page for more details.
