Historic Market House Theatre Stage 

Great for large meetings, weddings/receptions, and performances, the Market House Theatre Stage is located in the historic Market House building facing Kentucky Avenue. While originally a market for farmers to sell produce, the space was transformed into a theatre in 1963. This space is currently set up for digital presentation and sound reinforcement and will make a great venue for many functions. Current seating performance seating allows 200 people. Table and chair seating allows 100.  Pricing is $75 per hour.



Event and Reception Building

The Market House Theatre Event Building is one of the most popular spaces to hold events. Located on Market House Square, just down from Kirchhoffs Bakery and Etcetera 2, the Event Building stands out with its beautifully tiled covered walls. It has a main room that is capable of seating about 60 and side rooms that can hold about 40 more. There is a prep kitchen with refrigerators, an ice machine, and sinks that works perfectly for caterers. The Market House Theatre’s Courtyard can also be added with an outdoor stage to add more space and offer a unique, outdoor space for larger events.
