Regatta Banquet and Conference Center


The Regatta Banquet and Conference Center at Eliot Commons has opened for business. A ribbon cutting ceremony with the Greater York Region Chamber of Commerce will be held at the facility on Thursday, June 26 at 3:00 pm.
The facility has two state-of-the art function spaces: the Regatta Room can host 300 seated guests – perfect for conferences and weddings – and the more intimate Optimus Room accommodates up to 70 seated guests for board meetings, press conferences or upscale private dining or wine-tasting events. There is also a dressing room with private bathroom and shower facilities, perfect for VIPs, brides or talent.
The facility boasts a world class culinary team in a luxury commissary facility and top of the line, wireless audio/video equipment and multiple screens to accommodate any and all business or social functions. Efficiency Maine helped incorporate green technologies into the design which include such features as: heated sidewalks; interior, exterior, and parking lot lighting; low energy, high efficiency kitchen motors; recaptured heat from refrigeration motors; preheated water; and cooking systems that utilize steam generated by natural gas.
With the opening of this new facility, area residents now have a local, state-of-the-art event center to host business and social events of all kinds.
The Regatta Banquet and Conference Center is located at Eliot Commons on Route 236 right next door to the Shipyard Brew Pub. FMI:
