About

The secluded and large space of The Main Event is perfect for gatherings of all sizes. We have both indoor and outdoor space for your events. We have 42 acres that can be used for a multitude of uses, from weddings and receptions to fundraisers and corporate events!! We have an 8-acre meadow that has a 3/4 acre pond which is being transformed to a beautiful wedding site with arbors. We also welcome outdoor sporting groups to hold their events at The Main Event. We only host one major event each weekend.

The Main Hall features a space that can accommodate up to 350 guests and still have a great space for dancing, all in the same room!! Space can be transformed to whatever you want the space to look like. We allow you to bring in almost anything you wish to make your dream event a success. We feature a most amazing bridal suite that has 2 private bathrooms for the bride and her bridesmaids and a private dressing room for the bride with a large antique mirror. We did not forget the groom and his party!! They have a huge room that is right next to the Men's restroom for convenience. We have heating and air conditioning which will guarantee that you and your guests will dine and celebrate in comfort. The large, covered patio provides a place to start the party with drinks and hors d'oeuvres, and to step outside later and enjoy the evening air. We have recently renovated and expanded our kitchen, which can also be used to host other parties and/or rehearsal dinners. We can take care of your catering needs or we allow you to bring in outside caterers, even prepare your own food.

    The Main Event is a perfect place to have your wedding. Terre Haute lacks in event spaces and The Main Event has finally provided the perfect big event space. Management is exceptional to work with. Very helpful and works with the bride and groom to accomplish all their wants. There is plenty of space for a large wedding. 300 people can fit very comfortably in the space. Also there is a great kitchen and back room for a rehearsal dinner. There are rooms for the bridal party to get dressed and ready on site which are extremely convenient and help make the day less stressful. I would definitely recommend The Main Event for your wedding. I can't stress enough how amazing management is and the overall space it provides is unbeatable.

    I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this venue to any bride. Our wedding was everything I had dreamed of and more. The Sturgeon family (owners) played a HUGE role in preparing for the wedding and helping on the wedding day! I personally felt a lot less stress because they already had the tables, chairs, table cloths, silverware, and dishes. Not having to go multiple places to rent everything was so much easier and a lot less stressful. We were able to get in the venue mid week which was a lot earlier than most places. I had the ceremony and reception in the same room and it worked perfectly, we dismissed to a cocktail hour out front so the florist and caterer could come in and prepare for the reception. Kathy and her staff were there to help with the transition and everything turned out exactly how I wanted it. Its a blank slate that you can decorate any way you want to achieve your dream wedding! I could go on for days about how amazing my experience was but I truly think that anyone who books this venue will be so happy that they made the decision to go with The Main Event!!!
