Our newest area called The Paddock debuted in May 2016! If you’re interested in an outdoor wedding and reception, there is no other space like it in Lexington. We’ve taken the outdoor reception to the next level by incorporating indoor amenities such as climate-controlled dressing rooms, prep kitchen and bathrooms. No need for generators, you have electricity outside too! Add a tent if you’d like some cover or dance the night away under the stars.
The unique and rustic Stableview Hall, the casual barn-like atmosphere clearly defines the Center’s central location in the heart of the Thoroughbred industry. Supplied with a bar, this party area has become the best facility around for wedding receptions, barbecues, reunions, company parties/picnics and many other social events. This room seats up to 500.
The equestrian-themed, formal Horseman’s Lounge is 2,400 square feet of elegance. Complete with its magnificent chandelier, working brick fireplace, adjoining kitchen and bar, this room is ideal for banquets, weddings, wedding receptions, formals, proms, company parties, small business meetings and more. This room seats up to 200.
We have several event spaces to welcome a wide range of events. The Center’s sales Pavilion, or 920-seat auditorium, was originally built for horse auctions with the idea in mind to accommodate conventions, corporate meetings, conferences, seminars, concerts, theatre productions and other special events.
Groups looking for a nice, quiet atmosphere to hold small-scale meetings will definitely be interested in our Conference Room. Ideal for board meetings, staff meetings, seminars and other small events, our conference room is perfect.
