The MELLWOOD ART & ENTERTAINMENT CENTER, is located on 42 acres of land at 1860 Mellwood Ave. in close proximity to downtown Louisville, River Road, Frankfort Avenue, I-71, I-64, & I-65.

Originally the Fischer Meat Packing Company, the Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center has been renovated into a 360,000 square foot home to over 200 artist studios, specialty stores, galleries, teaching studios, office spaces, rehearsal spaces for theater groups, dancers and more. MAEC has been host to many exciting Art Fairs, Film Festivals, Music Concerts and numerous other creative events.

Throughout the center, there are over 200+ artists and artisans open at various times. We are now home to Danny Mac's Pizza, Derby City Crossfit, not to mention our four event rooms.

The original Fischer Meat Packing Company building was built in 1904. During the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1950’s several additions were added to the original structure. Today, many of these industrial elements are still visible at the Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center. As you tour our vast complex, experience the massive rooms with 20ft ceilings and mushroom columns, as well as smaller rooms waiting to be artist studios that are tucked in an alcove.

Come explore this tremendous unique environment where artisans of all kinds network, collaborate and create!
