For nearly 30 years in the events industry, Maceli’s continues to perfect the art of events by developing first class food, service and venues. Our goal is to take much of the guesswork and pressure out of planning an event.

Event Services

Full Service Events at our Venues

When we host your event at one of our two venues, our event team will help you every step of the way, right down until the moment your last guest leaves. We will help you to customize your every detail, from menus and music, right down to the color of the napkins, or simply sit back and let our experts handle it all. Either way, you can count on a beautiful space, seamless event, and excellent food and service.

Catering at Off-Site Events

Catering has been our specialty from day one. Wherever you choose to host your event, Maceli’s will provide the excellent food, service, and attention to detail for which we are known. We will help you create the ideal menu and service level for your occasion. Catering services range from an intimate cocktail party for 25 to full service dinner for 600. Either way you can expect a memorable experience.


We offer full-service planning for your wedding ceremony and reception when hosted at our venues. Our wedding coordinators will be there for your rehearsal and ceremony to help you make the most incredible memories. There are so many wonderful venues in Lawrence and it’s no surprise that for years Maceli’s has cateredat many of them. Whether our place or yours, you can expect Maceli’s wedding services to make your dream wedding a reality.

Smaller Celebrations

We host events of all sizes and occasions at Maceli’s and Arterra, as well as provide catering at your chosen location. Arterra Event Gallery is perfect for events of 25 to 125 people, while our Bistro Room at Maceli’s downtown is presently ideal for 25 to 60 guests. In the near future it will more than double in size and capacity.

Community & Professional events

We’ve become one of the best known venues in town for community and professional events because of our ease of accommodations, excellent service, decades of experience, and the range of our available audio visual capabilities. From large board meetings with several presenters, small team brainstorming sessions with flip charts, or networking group lunches, we are prepared to make it easy, accessible, and comfortable for you and your guests.
