W​elcome​ to Ev​ents B​y MLB

About Us



Events By MLB, LLC opened in January of 2017.  We are a family owned business and said for many years that this building would make a wonderful event center.  L​ow and behold we were able to get our hands on this beautiful, historic building.  It's been a whirlwind every since!  

We have learned new techniques and gathered fresh ideas with every single event we have held.  Every event is like a member of our family is celebrating!  Our building can hold 400 seated guests, so don't worry, we are confident you will have plenty of room to celebrate, eat and enjoy your special day.  

When you book our venue, we want you to feel comfortable with every aspect of the planning process.  You receive a personal code for your event so you and your family are able to come and go at your convenience.   Our venue works for your wedding shower, rehearsal, wedding and reception.  

We work hard to ensure you have everything you need.  

For Booking Information Call 217-840-9189 or 217-840-9682. 

 Weddings, Receptions, Class Reunions, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, Business Events, Trade Shows, Auctions and more. We look forward to helping make your event special.


We Love to Keep You Happy

Matt really is this fun!  This is our bar back, handy man, muscle, go to fix it man!  He has a fun personality and is the Bus Driver for our shuttle/party bus.  He is usually running around during events getting beer, moving things around and we can count on him to do all the things we need him to do...and trust me with two women asking to build this or do that he has his hands full!
