Where is the Events Center located?

All spaces are located in or adjacent to Greer City Hall, which is located at 301 East Poinsett Street.  Dedicated in the fall of 2008, the facility was constructed with public space in mind, so the entire second floor of the three-floor building is dedicated to event / meeting halls, ample reception space with a verandah, and a catering kitchen.  The event / meeting halls overlook the 12-acre City Park's grand fountain and waterfall fountain. Our second event space, the Cannon Centre, located at 204 Cannon Street, offers a large meeting and event space with catering kitchen. The Cannon Centre and additional park facilities are easily accessible by sidewalks.

What type of events can be held at the Events Center?

Quite simply, there is no event that the city has not been able to accommodate.  Families will enjoy hosting birthday parties in the picnic shelter with ample space for games and fun.  Brides may choose the City Park Amphitheater for their wedding, with a reception in the open events hall.  Businesses and organizations may desire a small conference room for a day-long retreat.  The city reserves the right to decline any request based on community standards or security concerns.

May I tour the facilities to determine if they fit my needs?

Absolutely.  In fact, we recommend that you visit the Events Center to see it in person.  A web site can only give you so much information and photos and videos just can't do justice to the facilities.  Please contact Ashlyn Stone at (864) 968-7005 or Robbie Davis at (864) 968-7004 to arrange a tour time that fits your schedule.
