Whether you’re planning a small corporate luncheon for 10 or a formal wedding reception for 300 guests, you’ll find the perfect space and amenities for your next special event at the Shoreview Community Center.
The Community Center has hosted hundreds of functions, from corporate meetings and seminars to birthday parties, family reunions, high school graduations, bar mitzvahs, quinceañeras and many other momentous occasions.
“When most people come here for weddings, parties and other events, they say they had no idea our space was so elegant and comparable to many upscale hotel spaces,” says Shoreview Community Center Manager Michelle Majkozak.
Many couples choose to host their special day in the Shoreview and Wedell Community Rooms, which comfortably seat 300 and 244 guests, respectively. Both rooms feature soft, indirect lighting and large wooden tables complete with white linens and cushioned chairs. Guests can cozy up to a fire with a glass of wine in the adjacent lounge or let loose on one of two oak parquet dance floors. Modern audio and visual equipment is available and included in the room rental’s flat rate.
Guests are also allowed to bring in any licensed caterer of their choosing — a benefit many other event centers do not offer. The community center also provides full alcohol service with its in-house provider.
“Caterers love our kitchen facilities with modern equipment and lots of space,” notes Shoreview Community Center office technician Carol Emert.
In warm months, an onsite favorite for outdoor events is the Shoreview Community Center’s Haffman Pavilion. Located in the center’s picturesque backyard and surrounded by an award-winning native plant garden, the Haffman Pavilion can comfortably accommodate groups of up to 150 people and features two outdoor grills, 18 picnic tables and an indoor fireplace. During the winter months, groups enjoy the outdoor skating rink with stadium lighting and the heated indoor space with a fireplace to warm up.
Kids love having their birthday parties year-round in the rooms near the Tropics Waterpark and Tropical Adventure Playground, and can get wristbands giving them full access to each. The staff at the Shoreview Community Center offers “princess,” “pirate” and “under the sea” themed parties for youngsters as well, and groups can have the water park all to themselves by renting it out after hours.
Whatever your event, the helpful employees at the Shoreview Community Center are committed to making sure its an enjoyable one for you and your guests at this premiere facility.
