Leesville Event Center grand opening today

By Emily Burleigh

The grand opening of the highly anticipated Leesville Event Center is taking place at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 15.

The Leesville Event Center, located at 608 Nolan Trace, is slated to be the “premiere event center for West Central Louisiana,” according to the City of Leesville. The center will be the “go-to venue” to a variety of local and out-of-town events like weddings, banquets, business conferences and conventions.

It features an almost 8,000 square foot large auditorium with a sound system, unlimited internet access and a ceiling-mounted digital projector with a large screen. Additional amenities include multiple smaller meeting rooms, a warming and staging kitchen with a large dining room and on-site staff for all events.

This center will also be the new home for the Leesville Kingdom Center – a youth outreach center founded in 2021 – the Mayor’s Women’s Commission and the Mayor’s Youth Council.

The Leesville Event Center will be available to rent for both small and large events.

For more information on renting the Leesville Event Center, contact Jennifer Paddy at 337.239.2444.
