A PLACE FOR GATHERINGS


With the addition of the LEED Certified Nelson Cultural Center in 2012, brides and event planners have many options from traditional to festive forward. Cocktails in the Castle. Ceremonies in the Courtyard. Parties in the sleek, modern Larson Hall, with its adjacent promenade and rooftop deck. Come visit our venue and see how your dreams can become reality with the help of our on-site catering division, Slate & Stone.

In 2019 we won the Twin Cities Business “Unique Venues Award” for the top outdoor business spaces for business events.
