We're a one-stop shop, with one contact at the venue that will help with set up as well as catering. With dinner purchase, room set ups, tables, chairs and dance floor is complementary. 


The Grand Ballroom is Iowa's largest ballroom at 28,800 square feet, and can be divided by two, with an additional 14,032 square feet of prefunction space. The extended space makes it ideal for socially distancing your guests.
