The Aku Venue Event Center, a new event space in Moncks Corner, will host its ribbon cutting ceremony Jan. 22 at 3 p.m. The following day, the grand opening celebration will take place at 4 p.m. Both events will take place at Aku Venue in Corner Square Plaza.

The Aku Venue will offer an event space for baby showers, birthday parties, weddings and receptions, conferences and worship services.

According to owner Candace Pringle, the venue space is meant to fill any void in the community. The Aku Venue came together after years of encountering obstacles while trying to engage the community. “The work that we have planned will not stop, therefore my spouse, Patrina Aku, supported me 100% and we teamed up to bring an event space in our own community to life,” Pringle said.

During the week, when there are less events, the Aku Venue will be open by appointment as a space for work and meetings. The event space will offer wifi, coffee and tea, water and simple print jobs for $25 per hour during those days.
