Christmas- When planning that family Holiday gathering think of the Main Event. There is plenty of room for everyone. Bring in your own food or have it catered, either way we clean up the mess when you are done.



This is a great place to use for events/parties. We’ve been using the Main Event for our Bag Tournaments and very lucky to have a great place to put something on in the winter. Great people and always helpful!!

What a great place to host Thanksgiving dinner for 32 people. There were plenty of tables for food set up, eating, playing games and just sitting around for conversation. And the big screen TV was a major plus for watching the football game! Tim explained where everything was, how things worked and who to call if any problems arose. I would highly recommend The Main Event for your family get togethers, parties..or anything where your house is just too small to accommodate everyone.

We had the River City Street Todd Christmas party there last Saturday. We had a great time with good food and the facility fit our needs perfectly. Stage, sound systems and plenty of space. Thanks to both Joe and Tim. We will be back next year for sure.

Really a nice facility for Mason City…good job Tim and Joe. Just the right size clean, nice bathrooms and a fully stocked bar perfect! Please book your events and keep this going. I am from Mason City but now live in Marion, I was back for the comedy show my nephew was headliner and was very impressed. People need to come out and promote the events happening here.
