Make it a special occasion
Imagine your wedding day surrounded by historic beauty, or your next corporate meeting using the big screen. The Civic Center auditorium and ballroom are available for rent for concerts, live theatre, film screenings, meetings, weddings and receptions, and other special events. The historic theatre building fronts Main Street in charming uptown Lexington and is an easy walk to several restaurants and unique retail shops.
The Civic Center’s facilities include an 1,100-seat auditorium and lobby, and a ballroom with capacity for up to 150. Rental rates vary depending upon the day and time of the event, staging and setup requirements, and front-of-house considerations. With a nearly full schedule every month, we highly recommend that you contact us to discuss your rental needs as you begin considering dates for your event. Find additional details below.
Special event rentals
Auditorium rentals start at $1000 per day (minimum 8-hour rental required).
Ballroom rentals start at $350 per weekday, $600 per weekend day.*
*Auditorium rentals take precedence over the availability of the ballroom. If the auditorium is occupied, then the ballroom is unavailable for a separate event.
