About Us

The Manchester Community Center is a place where residents gather to meet, work and socialize. The Center opens its doors to groups and organizations of all types, as well as supporting and leading worthwhile initiatives that help make Manchester-by-the-Sea a truly special place to live. We are a free space for community events, a rental space for private events, and a sponsor/co-sponsor of a myriad of gatherings in our community. The Manchester Community Center relies wholly on memberships, private donations, and the countless hours of our volunteer board members, and is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.

Located in beautiful Manchester-by-the Sea, Massachusetts, the Manchester Community Center building at Harbor Point was originally donated and has been subsequently refurbished several times through private donations. We are not just a meeting space – we are proud to sponsor and co-sponsor programs in and outside of our building.
