Catered Events


All catering services must be provided by one of the following select caterers. Catering fees are not included in the Lake Mary Events Center’s rental price. The select caterers have been chosen to provide a wide variety of menus and services to accommodate diverse tastes, budgets, and occasions. Please contact one of them to help plan your event. No other catering services are permitted.

 

Kitchen Facilities, including refrigerators, ice machine, and microwaves, are available ONLY to the Select Caterers.

Contact your select caterer to determine what services will be provided. Many caterers have or will develop packages to include setup/decoration, service, and cleanup, as well as linens, china, centerpieces, etc. The caterer must be onsite for the entirety of the event.
