The Gathering Place is an event venue with enough space to host all your friends and family. We can accommodate 600 guests for a standing cocktail event or 500 guests for a seated dinner. We offer a professional prep kitchen and full bar service along with a variety of tables for cocktail hours, guest books, dessert displays, gift tables, & a beverage counter. Included with the venue we provide 3 25 foot dividing walls for backdrops so you can really design the space.
At our venue, you can do your wedding indoors or outdoors! You can design the perfect ceremony space by decorating our space to your preference. The space has track lighting to highlight the head table and other permanent decorative lighting fixtures along with electrical outlets throughout to allow you to build out the event space with additional lights and features.
