About

On WeddingWire since 2020

Located in Marion, Iowa, Epic Event Center is a family owned and operated wedding venue. Owners Les and Tracy Arnold worked with family to design and remodel the building, creating a spacious and elegant venue that’s sure to make your special day one to remember. The Epic Team strives to provide their clients and guests the most wonderful and personal experience.

Whether you’re planning a small intimate wedding with 100 guests or a large celebration with 450 guests, Epic Event Center is the perfect venue. There are three ceremony locations on-site, two of which are outdoors, including a large willow tree surrounded by a pond with fountains, a large and spacious patio with a gazebo, and the inside location on a stage. Epic Event Center features an elegant 26-foot vaulted ceiling, customizable wall lighting that offers a multitude of options for ambience and a beautiful 35-foot built-in bar. The bride’s room offers the perfect space with plenty of natural light and mirrors for the bride and her attendants to get ready throughout the day. The grooms room doubles as a game room for that added bit of fun!

Epic Event Center is available to host your wedding ceremony and reception with management on-site at all times. Tables and chairs, as well as all setup/cleanup, are included in venue rental. At the end of the evening, you simply take your personal belongings and leave the clean-up to the Epic team. As a cater only facility, there is a catering prep room and you may hire a caterer of your choice. Epic Event Center carries the liquor license and all insurances. All beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, will be purchased and served through Epic bartenders.

Epic Event Center would love to help make your most memorable day EPIC!

Exceptional Experience with Epic!

My wife and I highly recommend Epic Event Center for your weddings and events. We had our wedding reception there recently and Karen and the rest of the team at Epic beat our expectations in every way possible and went way above and beyond of what we would expect from a venue. They were also super easy to work with, and provided us and our guests with exceptional service. The venue itself is beautiful inside and out which created an amazing setting for our event. We can’t say enough good things about Epic Event Center!

Epic Event Center is EPIC!

Epic Event Center should be at the top of every engaged couples list to tour. The Epic team is professional, responsive, and most importantly understands that this is the most important day of starting your lives as a couple. They take the time to learn about you and your families, and in a way, welcome you into theirs. Working with the Epic team was absolutely seamless; this included recommendations on table/decoration placement, referrals to vendors, and providing unique accommodations as needed on the day of our reception. We were able to provide the Epic team with a list of our vendors and the coordination on the day of was handled in the background so the wedding party could focus on our big day. Absolutely nothing felt out of place or fell through; all of our expectations were exceeded. Epic is large enough to accommodate 300+ which was close to our guest list. No matter the size the building is beautiful ranging all from the changing of colors on the walls, the white lights that hang from the ceiling, the beautiful willow tree and pond out front, the gazebo and outdoor area with fire pits to the gorgeous stone decorated bar to pull the ambiance together for an EPIC reception! You will not be disappointed choosing Epic for your event, wedding, or reception.

Absolutely outstanding service and venue

From the first time we toured, Epic was AMAZING. Not only is it a gorgeous space, but the owners are so professional, helpful, and accommodating. Karen and Jami and their families made us feel so welcome and taken care of at every point, when we were in the planning stages, during the big day, and afterwards. I am so glad we chose Epic Event Center for our reception venue. I can’t imagine having it anywhere else!
