Historical Event Venue In The Annapolis Valley

The former Cornwallis Inn (now Main Street Station) was host to some of the grandest events that took place in Atlantic Canada in the 20th century! Recent renovations have brought the space back to life whilst staying true to the building's historical charm and character.

Maritime Express Cider Co. offers three different venues to meet any of your event needs:


The Ballroom - Feel the energy of the big band and jazz events from a bygone age! The 2,000+ sq/ft historical ballroom boasts floor to ceiling windows, antique chandeliers, hardwood floors, and a stage that can grow according to your band's needs. This makes for a perfect weddings venue, fundraiser galas location, or concert venue.  


The ballroom's capacity is 165 and Maritime Express can provide an on-site bar completely free of charge! We also have creative hors d'oeuvres and banquet menus available to help make your event stress-free, but we do allow outside catering as to not limit your options.

The Mezzanine - This photographic room with original features from the 1930's is a great venue for media launches, small musical events, group presentations, or cocktail receptions. The capacity is 60, and it has a few clusters of soft seating, a baby grand piano, and a grand fireplace. We cannot accommodate sit-down meals in this space, but we can offer hors d'oeuvres and drinks for your event!

The Parlour Room - This newly renovated space feels like you are in an old English Parlour, with cozy elements such as a fireplace, a hardwood bar, harvest tables, and a resident deer head! The capacity is 40, and we can accommodate standing events, or private sit-down meals. Perfect for retirement parties, anniversaries, birthdays, or small office parties.
