About US


So Much to Think About.

So Little Time.

That’s Where WE come In.

The Regatta Events and Banquet Center has long been regarded as Southern Maine and New Hampshire’s premier event facility. It is conveniently located on Route 236 North in Eliot, Maine and located just 2 miles from the Maine Turnpike, 5 minutes from downtown Portsmouth. 

Our unique location and partnership with Shipyard Brewing Company and our neighbors, Shipyard Brew Pub Eliot, allow us to enlist the full might of Shipyard’s offerings and give you a fully customizable menu of Shipyard’s beer for your events.  

The Regatta has ample free onsite parking for over 300 cars. 

The facility boasts three beautifully appointed rooms serving parties from 20 to 400 guests. The Regatta specializes in gala weddings, social gatherings, private parties, cocktail receptions, business conferences and special events.


Our large modern kitchen with its professional certified chefs can prepare the simple to the elegant buffets, plated meals and hors d’oeuvres. Our chefs can accommodate specific dietary concerns and will cater to special menu requests.

We also have an off premise catering division that will customize an event for you if your gathering needs to be close to another location.

Our banquet manager Claudine Bouchard holds a graduate degree in both business management and marketing research and is a certified wedding coordinator. With her guiding hand, our talented staff is certain to make your event a memorable one!

It’s Going to be Perfect!
