Historically, the top of the 1885 market building served as the Roanoke Opera House. The 1922 structure’s Assembly Hall was used for public gatherings and events, however, with the lack of complete public accessibility, the hall had gone dormant. With the 2011 top-to-bottom rehabilitation of the Market Building, Charter Hall was turned into Roanoke’s premier event space. It is now available for your next special event.

Conferences, musical performances, special-occasion receptions, and dinners can be easily hosted in the historic venue. Please contact the Market Building Events Manager Hannah Martin for more information or fill out the event contact form above.
