Welcome to the
Agora Grand Event Center

a stunning castle-style Maine wedding venue

Congratulations on your engagement! Now it’s finally time to start planning, and to lock in a date for your New England wedding venue in Maine.

Your wedding day vision is clear – a day surrounded by friends and family, where their creativity and yours get to come to life. As you look for a venue, you’re finding that many venues are inflexible to accommodate your unique desires, or the expense to rent a venue that gives you enough time to decorate is astronomical. Its frustrating.

The Agora Grand Event Center is the exceptional space you have been dreaming about, but couldn’t find until now.

The historic space has found a new life as an event venue in downtown Lewiston, Maine, a quick 45-minute drive from Portland, Maine and only two and a half hours away from Logan Airport in Boston, MA.

You’re bound to love:

  • Our castle-style ceremony and reception under one roof with exclusive use of the venue.
  • Our full weekend rentals give you up to 16 hours to decorate on the day BEFORE your wedding and cleanup doesn’t need to be completed until the day AFTER the wedding.
  • Our 20-foot gilded canopy is a one-of-a-kind focal point. We designed and built a decorating system that enables you to utilize this feature in ways that pull your entire theme together – without ever standing on a ladder.
  • The Inn accommodations right next door that are perfect for the wedding party and guests.
  • We are open to all and work hard to ensure that everyone is comfortable in our venue by recognizing and celebrating our differences as humans. Because we are a small business, we get to make the rules instead of a faceless corporation that has rigid rules employees must follow.
