Events on the Avenue

A great space for your next party or get together!

Event space for 5 to 200 people

Located within the former Knights of Columbus building at 987 Mentor Ave. in Painesville, next to the Potti & Marc F. Burr Funeral Homes, Events on the Avenue is conveniently located near the St. Rt. 2 and St. Rt. 44 interchange along Mentor Ave making it easy to get to, no matter what direction you are coming from. Two floors give the option to have smaller gatherings in the quaint, game room style basement, complete with it's own bar or larger gatherings can happen on the main level with comfortable seating for up to 150 people possible. For the largest parties, both floors can be combined to allow your guests to feel comfortable no matter where they decide to "hang out". Restroom facilities are available on each level.

Kitchen Space

Currently, the kitchen is not able to be used for any cooking at the facility. Over the next few years, we will be working with the county health department to design and build a kitchen that will compliment the events and the capabilities of the facility. 

Upstairs bar area

Currently, there is a service bar area upstairs that is included with the rental of the main floor. This is an area that can be used to put out a buffet or for beverages. There is a bar height refrigerator and ice machine located behind the bar for use with rental of the space. Should alcohol be served, additional fees may apply and there may be police presence required. Please call for more information.


The off street parking lot for Events on the Avenue can accommodate 47 cars on property. Connected by a driveway, the Potti & Marc F. Burr Funeral Homes located next door can accommodate 58 cars, giving room for over 100 cars between the two parking lots.
