Oh, the Possibilities


The HarMac Event Space resides in the historic

Harper & McIntire building in downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Completed in 1922, the building was originally a warehouse

and shipping facility for Harper & McIntire's industrial hardware.

The company also procured their own line of hand-crafted

tools, coined "HarMac" - thus, our shared name.

In 2015, the property was purchased and restored

to reflect it's original industrial character and charm.

In 2020, the second floor of the building was re-purposed

into a venue, by Travis Newell. The HarMac has been

meticulously designed to showcase it's industrial roots and stunning proportions. No stranger to the event industry,

Mr. Newell is also the owner of Unique Events,

a respected event design and entertainment business.

Highlights of the event space include

the building's exposed brick walls, natural light,

original metalwork, and stately pillars.

The flexibility of this distinctive venue allows guests

to enjoy it year-round, for many different uses, including

weddings, private events, corporate functions, and more.
