Event Venues

We Chose The Moon Photography

MAEC won “Best Place to Hold an Event” by Leo Weekly Readers in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. You can truly build the event of your dreams in our easily customizable spaces. MAEC has an open vendor policy and the longest rental period in the city.

All day rentals begin at 8 AM and end at 2 AM. All set-up and clean-up should take place during that time period. Tables and chairs are included with your rental fee. Floor plans supplied 2 weeks prior to your event will be set-up before your rental period by the MAEC crew. You will be required to purchase a limited-liability insurance policy. We cannot allow items to be left before or after your event without an additional fee.

TOURS: You can drop-in the leasing office Monday-Thursday from 10 AM – 4:30 PM. Friday and Saturday tours are by appointment only.
