Time to party! For a Latina girl, turning 15 years old is much more than just another birthday. It symbolizes the transition from girlhood into womanhood—something that certainly deserves a big celebration! When looking for a quinceañera venue, you’ll want something that can check off all your boxes.

Because quinceañera parties are big celebrations that involve a lot of family and friends, the space needs to be large enough to comfortably fit everyone. Stillwater Event Center’s 4,000 sq. ft. facility and 225 indoor guest capacity ensures that you’ll be able to invite plenty of guests. And when you and your guests need to take a quick breather, our secluded, newly renovated patio is just a step away, complete with a beautiful pergola and a patio heater for those cooler nights.

Girls deserve to feel like a princess at their quinceañera reception, so feel free to bring whatever decorations you like! We provide tables, chairs, and tablecloths, and the rest is up to your imagination. In the past, we’ve had girls bring in their own comfortable thrones to sit on and placed them between the two tables for their quinceañera court. You can choose between round and rectangular tables or a mix of both! It’s truly up to you and the look you want to achieve for the event.

One of the most important parts of any celebration, but especially for a quinceañera party: food! We have an in-house caterer, so setting up the menu and food service process is easy. We have a wide range of delicious menu items sure to please your guests—all you’ll have to do is talk with our caterer and select which items you’d like for the reception.

What is a quinceañera reception without dancing? If the quinceañera court is performing a dance, they’ll need plenty of room, and our banquet hall has just that. And of course, guests will need space to dance the night away as well! You can have a DJ or a live band— for the latter, we’ll just need to work with you on the number of band members and how much space they’ll need.

Stillwater Event Center is an affordable quinceañera venue in Stillwater, MN, that’s perfect for hosting a young girl’s special, ceremonious day. Please contact us for quinceañera event pricing and available dates.
