Selecting a venue for your event that meets all of your needs is as simple as choosing a Rental Package at Bluestem! We offer many different packages that can meet your needs. We offer different amounts of time, different spaces both indoor and outdoor on the Bluestem campus. From the warm and unique Marcil Commons to the vast and beautiful Bluestem Park – there is definitely something here to meet your needs! We have held many different events at our venue including:
- Company Outings
- Business Conferences
- Family Reunions
- Graduation Parties
- Speaking Engagements
The facilities of Trollwood Performing Arts School and Bluestem Center for the Arts are typically available for wedding event rentals between the last weekend of September and the second weekend of May.
Our packages offer a variety of different spaces and combination of spaces to make your event perfect. Our events are first by time and then by space – we have packages from 0 – 4 hours, 4 – 8 hours, and a 12 hour package. Our packages do not extend for earlier or later than the event date. If you are interested in setting up or decorating the night before – you are welcome to book an additional rental package. There may be an event previously booked that would not allow this to be a possibility. Our Rentals Coordinator will be able to talk with you more about this!
Please read through the entire Event Rental Information Packet for full details regarding caterers, linens, liquor service, event equipment provided, all additional responsibilities, and decorating policies.
Be aware that the Marcil Commons will accommodate up to 250 guests seated for dinner, but this requires seating in multiple rooms. Our largest room, the Scheels Living Room, will seat up to 184 with round tables, and 240 banquet style.
