In addition to offering more FUN activities than any other venue in Maryland, Main Event is consistently ranked the “best place for parties,” thanks to its distinctive “Eat. Bowl. Play.” experience. Main Event’s hassle-free birthday parties are easy for parents and epic for kids with multiple packages and activities offered for all ages, seven days a week.

“The Mall in Columbia is thrilled to have Main Event Entertainment join our growing list of new merchants, restaurants, and entertainment venues,” said Barbara Nicklas, Senior General Manager of The Mall in Columbia. “Main Event is the perfect partner as we continue to create the best family entertainment and shopping in the region.”
