Our Main Ballroom is the perfect spot for your next event. This room is breathtakingly huge with 40 foot high ceilings. Whether someone is getting married, you’re having a birthday party, a black-tie event, business meeting, graduations, trade shows, or dances, our ballroom can accommodate your needs. Our Main Ballroom offers enough space for at least 350 guests seated at tables or 500 guests seated in a theatre-style, and there are extra rooms that you can rent to add more space.
Our Main Ballroom features a large terrazzo tile dance floor which is perfect for all kinds of dancing. There is a 15’ by 45’ theatre stage for more entertainment. The curtain on the stage is motorized, so you can make a big and special reveal during your event.
We feature a state-of-the-art sound system with excellent acoustics and colored stage lighting with two spotlights.
The Main Ballroom comes with 170 parking spaces, but you can arrange to have more if needed. Of those 170 spaces, 14 are designated as handicapped accessible. There is also a covered area for picking up and dropping off guests to keep you safe from the weather.
The ballroom comes with a full-service event bar and full professional kitchen as well. You can dine at our restaurant, Hometown Heroes Bar & Grill, while you are here. The full-service kitchen can serve four-course meals, snacks, appetizers, and any meal that you would like. At Sarasota Event Center, we also offer a sumptuous buffet service upon your request.
Need some AV help to give a presentation? We have reliable audio and visual equipment for that purpose. Our 12-foot projection screen is on the stage and we also have a separate room for you to control the curtain and other AV tasks. The ballroom has its own music and new state-of-the-art PA system, so you get to set the ambiance with great acoustics and music that your guests will hear.
We also have other television screens and projectors that you could use during your event. If there is something you may need, give us a call and we will try to accommodate your needs as best we can. Your DJ will love our setup.
Situated close to the airport, our location is also ideal for events. Your guests will be able to arrive easily from the highway. Family and guests from out-of-town will enjoy the easy directions too.
