Our event center offers a spacious hall, in-house caterer, free parking, an outdoor patio, and more—perfect and practical for all types of corporate events. We can hold events such as awards ceremonies, business meetings, company retreats, luncheons, holiday parties, and more!

Food and drinks are important for celebrations, and when you choose Stillwater Event Center, we’ll take care of it all! Scheel’s Catering, our in-house caterer, will work with you to decide on the evening’s menu. There are plenty of delicious appetizers, entrees, and desserts to choose from, so attendees will be more than happy! We also have a bar in the hall for those special celebrations.

Space is an important thing to consider when choosing a venue, especially if you’re planning something like a company awards night. Stillwater Event Center is a 4,000 sq. ft. facility, and our event hall can hold up to 225 people. There are several seating options available for your event, including whether you’d prefer round or rectangular tables. We also take care of table and seating setup and takedown, and we also supply tablecloths. When you choose us for a celebration such as a holiday party, you can decorate our entrance area and bring table centerpieces to make the space your own for the evening.

During your event, attendees can step out onto our newly renovated patio for a breath of fresh air. We have outdoor seating, a patio heater, and a beautiful pergola that makes the space feel so elegant. Our patio can hold up to 100 people, and it’s a great space for team building activities!

Many corporate events use some type of technology during the event, such as using a laptop and screen to put up a slideshow for an awards ceremony or a training class—that’s why Stillwater Event Center has free Wi-Fi! Our event staff will help you get set up, and we also have audio and video equipment available—just discuss what you’ll need in advance with the owner. We want your event to run as smoothly as possible!
