The Palmer Events Center – TX

The Palmer Events Center (PEC) is a multi-purpose venue nestled next to Butler Park with a gorgeous view of downtown Austin. We are in close proximity to a strong cluster of hotels with 11,000 guest rooms.

Our venue features a flexible floor plan with 125,000 gross square feet. Its two column-free exhibit halls provide 70,000 sq. ft. and its covered outdoor canopies offer an additional 50,000 sq. ft.

The Palmer Events Center (PEC) actually dates back to 1940 when the City of Austin purchased an airplane hangar on the south shores of Town Lake. The hangar was then converted into an all-purpose City Coliseum that opened to the public in 1949. Approval from voters for a whole new structure, the Lester E. Palmer Events Center, went through in the 1998 bond election. This vote brought to life what many know today as the PEC.
