Are you looking to host an event in the Rochester, Minnesota area? Whether your big plans include throwing your dream wedding or pulling together a family reunion, there are a number of quality venues to consider for your event. Here are three venues and event spaces near Springs at South Broadway that are worth checking out:
1. Mayo Civic Center
30 Civic Center Dr SE
If you're not needing the event space until the spring of 2017, you may want to consider the convention center addition to the Mayo Civic Center. Opening in April, this $84 million expansion project will offer a 38,500-square-foot ballroom, 16 private meeting rooms, pre-function space, and a 7,500-square-foot outdoor plaza. In addition, the facility is surrounded by the 11-acre Mayo Park, which makes this venue ideal for outdoor events as well.
2. Blue Moon Ballroom
2030 Hwy 14 E
Whether you're hosting a wedding or high school reunion, this 5,000-square-foot banquet facility is perfect for events of up to 250 people. The space is setup to accommodate indoor and outdoor events, which works well for those that want an outdoor wedding ceremony followed by an indoor reception. Another advantage of the Blue Moon Ballroom is that you have the freedom to choose your own caterer for your event.
3. Salem Glen Vineyard and Winery
5211 60th Ave SW
If you're looking to host a smaller, more intimate event, the Salem Glen Vineyard and Winery can accommodate groups from 5 to 60 people. This family-owned boutique winery was founded in 2006 and features wines made from grapes grown from the rolling hills of the Zumbro River Valley, which is just outside of Rochester.
The winery is located on 12 scenic acres and includes private event space such as the tasting room (800-square-feet and seats 60) and the winery deck (350-square-feet and seats 30).
These three unique venues and event spaces are just a sampling of what can be found in the Rochester, Minnesota area. To help ensure that you're able to secure your ideal venue, it’s advised that you schedule your event at least three months in advance.
