Palmer Events Center

Overview

The Palmer Events Center (PEC) is situated in Butler Park, a beautiful, 54-acre city park located along the shores of Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake). The 131,000 square-foot, multi-use events center opened in 2002 and has been the facility of choice for many public consumer shows, trade shows, conferences, banquets, receptions, concerts, dances and society balls. The building itself is just as pretty as its surroundings, featuring natural limestone and a gently sloping asymmetrical roof, wood trusses and decking, textured concrete, its own pond and some of the best views in the city. Additionally, ceiling fans 20 feet in diameter are located above the covered outdoor, wrap-around terrace.

The facility is comprised of two exhibit halls with spacious lobbies, five meeting rooms, plenty of pre-function space, stunning outdoor terraces and extensive support areas. The PEC parking garage, which contains 1,200 spaces, is conveniently located adjacent to the facility. Entrances to the garage can be found along the north and south borders of Butler Park, on Riverside Drive near South 1st Street and Barton Springs Road between Bouldin and Dawson Streets respectively.

The outdoor wrap-around terrace and parking garage rooftop are quickly becoming prime space for special outdoor events. Keep these gorgeous areas in mind for an unforgettable banquet or a wedding under the stars. Check out the photo gallery to get a closer look at all the space PEC has to offer.
