COVID-19 UPDATE at the Temple

Dear Temple Community & Customers,


Please check back, as we will post the latest here on our Facebook and Website (


We have closed public access to the Temple until further notice. Our businesses and coworking space are open.

If you are a customer of a business at the Temple, please make an appointment with that business and contact them directly for access.

If you are a member of our coworking space, you will have access through your membership.

If you have questions on our venue for events, please call Mary Landes, Executive Director at 785-201-3132 x1.


If you have an event booked with us, we are monitoring the latest government guidelines and will follow those as they are established. We will contact you immediately if we learn of restrictions that would affect your event, and will work with you to reschedule in the future.


At this time, events have been rescheduled past August 1st.


We understand how difficult these restrictions are, and want you to know we are doing everything we can to keep our venue safe, clean and protected for our community and customers. We appreciate your understanding and patience!

Update: YOU did it! The roof was successfully replaced in March. Our theatre is dry for the first time in years. The backdrops are safe, and we are grateful to our supporters!
