The Athens Community Center offers room rental options for all occasions. The center is a great choice for business meetings, banquets, wedding receptions, birthday parties and other special events.

Let our staff provide setup and tear down services as well as tables and chairs all included in the price of the rental, no extra fees! We have both round and rectangle table options to choose from. Our round tables are 5 feet in diameter and our rectangle tables are 8 feet. Our rooms also include use of projectors and basic sound equipment. All you'll need to do is decorate!
