Mission Statement

The mission of the Big Flats Community Center is to enhance the lives of our citizens by providing a quality facility and by offering diverse recreational, educational, cultural, and public interest activities.

The Big Flats Community Center is a handicapped accessible, multi-purpose, multi-use facility intended for the use of Big Flats residents of all ages: youth, families, seniors. It is located on the Big Flats Municipal Campus on Maple Street next to the Town Hall.

New programs are being added daily. For questions and additional information, or if you would like to teach a class or volunteer, call the Community Center – 562–8443 ext. 303 between the hours of 8am and 4pm.


The Big Flats Community Center is an extraordinary facility with several multi-purpose rooms, generous restroom facilities, a large catering kitchen, and a Great Room.  The building is completely handicapped accessible and available for public use from 8am to 9pm weekdays at no cost to residents. The building and grounds are alcohol-free and no animals are allowed with the exception of service animals.  Saturday reservations are by appointment only and the Center is closed on Sunday.

The Great Room

Capacity 335 (250 seated, 156 at tables). The Great Room is the largest room in the community center and was designed for large meetings or gatherings. Its vaulted ceiling, heated facilities, wood flooring, and many windows make it a comfortable and welcoming space. It has a pull-down screen and facility for slide and Powerpoint presentations. There is also a patio outside the Great Room that has  tables with chairs and umbrellas. The patio can only be used in conjunction with the Great Room.
