PLAN YOUR EVENT

Bluestem Center for the Arts is a calm retreat located in South Moorhead. Nestled along the Red River, the wood and handcrafted stone buildings of Bluestem blend in with the surrounding nature, offering expansive views both inside the building and all around the grounds.

Located in a 38-acre park-like setting, Bluestem is like a private oasis inside the city of Moorhead. Bluestem is an ideal backdrop for any kind of indoor or outdoor event, from weddings to corporate retreats to community festivals, for groups from anywhere from one to three thousand.

The beautifully designed Marcil Commons building has a variety of spaces that serve many purposes. From small board rooms to a dance studio to the multipurpose Living Room which can serve as anything from a concert hall to a dining area, Marcil commons has a space that will work for many events from small groups through three hundred or more.

Our outdoor spaces also offer countless options. The Schlossman Pavilion, a lovely natural wood pavilion located steps from the river, can accomodate up to three hundred guests in a number of set ups. The Imagine Amphitheater, home to Trollwood’s Mainstage Musical each summer, has a capacity of three thousand and can be utilized for anything from large scale meetings or conferences to wedding ceremonies. In addition, the 38 acres at Bluestem are a perfect place for community festivals, farmer’s markets, or any event that would benefit from room to spread out in a beautiful outdoor setting.

Consider us for your upcoming event and welcome your guests to feel at home at Bluestem.
