Located in Blue Ridge Foothills of Forest City, North Carolina, the Carolina Event and Conference Center (CECC) is a state-of-the-art, multimedia equipped facility perfect for weddings, special events, business conferences and more. Our venue is located conveniently near the South Carolina border and an hour or less away from popular urban areas like Charlotte, Asheville, Hickory, Spartanburg, and Greenville.

The mission of the Carolina Event & Conference Center is to provide a first-class space for guests to create positive and lasting memories. By holding your special event at CECC, you get the added bonus of knowing that your investment is funding a great area of need. ALL PROCEEDS from CECC event rentals benefit the Carolina Foothills Foundation - a nonprofit organization that supports elder care, wellness, and youth development.

Prior to joining the Carolina Foothills Foundation, funds from the CECC benefited Hospice Care of the Foothills, a nonprofit organization offering that recently sold after 40 years in May 2022.
