Stillwater Event Center has a rich history of hosting memorable events. Formerly known as KC Hall, we’ve been hosting events for 32 years in beautiful Stillwater, Minnesota. Our 4,000 sq. ft. facility and 225 guest capacity allow us to host any type of event including weddings, quinceañeras, family reunions, sports banquets, corporate events, holiday parties, and more.
When looking for a venue to host your next event, location and parking is a top priority. We have free parking and are located near downtown Stillwater, and we’re just a short drive away from a handful of hotels. Street-level access through the main entrance makes our venue convenient, especially if you have decorations to bring in.
During your event, guests can step out onto our newly renovated patio for some fresh air. We have a lovely pergola and greenery for some shade, along with a patio heater for those chillier days and nights. Our patio can hold up to 100 guests, which also makes us a great venue for an outdoor wedding ceremony.
One of the many perks of choosing Stillwater Event Center for your next event is our in-house caterer, Scheel’s Catering. Food is incredibly important for keeping guests happy, and we have plenty of dishes to choose from! Before your event, our caterer will work with you to select choices from our menu of delicious appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Guests love our unique desserts, which range from chocolate fudge brownies to cream puffs. You can be sure that our meals will be a hit with your guests!
Because the setup needs for each type of event vary, we can email you a floor plan drawing prior to your event so you can decide on the layout of the indoor hall. We offer 60-inch round tables and either six- or eight-foot banquet tables. When it comes to decorations, we have beautiful ceiling drapes that complement any decor style, and the rest is up to you! You can bring centerpieces, custom furniture, seat coverings, signage—you really get to make the event center your own for the day.
