With its old world charm and soaring spaces reminiscent of the open prairie, Prairie Winds Event Center is the premier venue for your special celebration or corporate event. Entertain around 400 guests banquet-style in the center’s ballroom, wings and mezzanine, or create one or more intimate conference or gathering spaces.
