Create Memories Rich in History and Charm


When it was completed in 1875, the Collin County Courthouse was considered the tallest building in Texas north of San Antonio. The grand building featured a steep mansard roof with patterned shingles and decorative cut stone. In 1927, the Courthouse was drastically remodeled in the neoclassical style and served as a functioning courthouse until 1979. After sitting vacant for nearly 25 years, the building re-opened as McKinney Performing Arts Center on March 31, 2006. MPAC is in operation seven days a week and provides guests with experiences rich in history and culture. MPAC is located in the center of McKinney’s downtown square and adjacent to a historical neighborhood filled with Victorian, Queen Anne and Craftsman style homes.

We were very happy having our ceremony & reception at MPAC. The Events Coordinator made it super easy; she responded to e-mails quickly, she took care of things for us, and was willing to switch things around for us. The main reason we really looked into MPAC was because of the price. We were blown away by how inexpensive it was to rent out rooms. Though, it can be "inexpensive," at least in comparison. It was SO worth the money spent. You get a lot for the money spent.

I loved using them for my ceremony and reception site! This place is the perfect venue for a vintage style wedding! It was built in the 1770's and still has that old vintage feel to it. They have a beautiful theater room and and 3 levels with an elevator for elderly guests. The staff is just divine. They were so helpful and accommodating and there are several parking lots about a block away in each direction. Love, love, loved my wedding at McKinney Performing Arts Center. A lot of people never think about this place as a wedding venue the staff said but it's extremely reasonably priced. I only paid around $2300 for 10 hours and that was for the entire building! Its right in the middle of the square in downtown McKinney too so very beautiful!

It's a little difficult to give a review since coordinators changed since we booked the site. The current coordinator, Nicolette, is wonderful, responsive and very accommodating, but I want to rate our overall experience. The previous coordinator was a little difficult to get a hold of and also told us the reception venue could hold 120 people, which it definitely can't (100 is probably what it can comfortable hold). I want to bring this to the attention of any brides who might have been told the same thing, so that you can adjust accordingly. Thankfully it worked out for us just fine but it was definitely a cause of stress.

Everyone who works at the venue is very helpful, if you can find them. They usually have other events happening there, which didn't interfere at all with our wedding, but made it a little tricky to find people that said they would help us with the sound system, for example, or moving some tables around.

Overall it's a beautiful site for a great price and the current staff is great. Parking is a little tricky but not impossible.

My entire experience with MPAC was fabulous! From the initial call to the prompt response from Joyce Nissen, the Events Coordinator. The prices were extrememly reasonable especially for my strict budget constraints.

What can I say about Joyce? Joyce is simply marvelous. She is a special person who truly loves what she does. Her professionalism and helpfulness was much appreciated during my 'stressful' moments. Joyce went above and beyond the call of service to ensure that my wedding day was a memorable HIT! Love you Joyce.

Everything detailed in my contract went off without a hiccup. MPAC is a Top Notch Venue. Definitely a stress buster.

The McKinney Performing Arts provided a wonderful backdrop for an out-of-town guest reception prior to our rehearsal dinner. The Art Gallery was a unique, private location that chronicled the history of our small downtown. Our Wedding Ceremony was held in Noble Hall, a simple yet elegant venue for a small wedding. Joyce was wonderful in providing suggestions and help with details, adding a calming demeanor to the event and assisting guests with downtown information and directions.

This was the perfect place for me. The venue was affordable and still beautiful. I loved the open feel of the rooms and the natural light. The coordinator was WONDERFUL and so helpful. We used Noble Hall for the ceremony and Rauschaupt Hall for the reception. There was plenty of room for everyone and everything. I loved this location and would highly recommend it to anyone looking!

We had both our wedding and reception there. The staff was wonderful. We had the wedding in the theater and the reception in the reception hall. Joyce was a wonderful person and let us come and visit the rooms as many times that we needed, which was alot. They only provided the Chairs and Tables, but they allow outdoor catering and have a kitchen for you to use. If you want to serve alcohol they have portable bars that hold ice. They worked perfectly for what we needed. I highly recommend this place. I have also been to a couple of gallas there and it was amazing. They have speakers in every room, so you can hear the music wherever you are. Hope this helps and congratulations.
