The Harbor Center is at the epicenter of the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. It is only six miles from New Orleans and 20 minutes from the historic French Quarter, Superdome, the New Orleans Arena, and the Central Business District. However, The Harbor Center is a premiere venue for many types of events on the Northshore.

Center of Celebrations

Large and small celebrations are perfectly enjoyed at our Center- Mardi Gras Balls, Dance Recitals, Award Ceremonies, Weddings, and Receptions all happen in our wonderful space.

Center of Dynamic Business

Our space is so flexible that large and small meetings can occur simultaneously. Whether an association or corporation needs a venue, our staff can make the occasion an experience that participants remember and bring back to their communities and companies. We also have state-of-the-art technology for companies who need to integrate that feature into their meetings.

Center of the Community

The Harbor Center brings many groups of people in our community together to enjoy sports exhibitions, consumer shows, concerts, and family-oriented activities. Consult our event calendar to select an event for your friends and family. The Center has a special Lighthouse program for non-profit organizations who want to hold a meeting or event on Tuesday or Wednesday on a space-available basis. Organizations can enjoy our premier space at deeply discounted pricing. Click here for details.

The Harbor Center is truly the Center of It All.
