What happens when you take a former ice skating rink in Allentown and convert it to a spectacular venue for wedding receptions and other functions? You get The Palace Center!

Family owned and operated since June 2008 and located in what was for many years The Ice Palace Skating Arena, The Palace Center specializes in wedding receptions.  Those who visited The Ice Palace will remember the fun they experienced at this venue which was a part of the community for over 70 years.  The Palace Center takes great pride and pleasure in preserving the name and memorable landmark and creating new experiences where family, friends and fun come together.

When we purchased the former Ice Palace building in Allentown, Pennsylvania we envisioned an opportunity to create a beautiful venue to host community and private events in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding regions.  We opened our new facility with excitement and enthusiasm to deliver excellence in catering service.  Since we opened we have hosted some of the most elegant weddings and banquets.

In addition to just the reception, we can also provide the perfect space for the Wedding Ceremony.  The Bridal Suite comes complete with a private refreshment lounge, dressing room, and bathroom.

When it comes to our staff, we take great pleasure and care in preparing every detail of your reception to insure everything is perfect.  We offer international menu choices and other amenities for those wishing to supplement the Wedding Packages. Our chef will create an unparalleled dining experience that will appeal to all your wedding guests.
