The historic Kilburn Event Center was built in 1910 and operated as a cotton mill, just one of many textile mills located in New Bedford. The textile industry in New Bedford grew quickly and brought in considerable wealth, but unfortunately, the industry declined just as quickly, leaving behind many grand structures. Today, many of these mills still sit unused and in disrepair, Kilburn Mill was one of these until its recent renovation. The Kilburn Events Center has created a beautiful industrial space that still celebrates its historic surroundings having kept its original features, tall windows, wooden floors, reclaimed brick, and hand-hewn wooden beams.


The waterfront Kilburn Event Center at Clark's Cove is the perfect space for a wedding. It is conveniently located just off Route 18 in New Bedford, minutes from Route 6, I-195 and Route 140 which is convenient for both couples and guests.
