Wonderful place to host an event - An Eventective User

We had a traditional Indian function and host was very helpful and accomodating

Hidden gem! Great place for any event - An Eventective User from Durham, NH

I first reached out to the Rockingham ballroom only days before our scheduled event due to another ballroom canceling on us last minute. Jim immediately responded and began getting to work to ensure we could still run a flawless event. He worked alongside us to ensure our accommodations were met and made sure any questions/concerns we had were promptly answered. On the day of our event, Jim came in early to make sure everything looked as we requested and by the time we arrived I could not be more impressed! I can't say enough how grateful we are that not only could our request be met on such short notice, but also for all the effort the Rockingham Ballroom put in to make sure we had an amazing event. I would 100% recommend this ballroom for any type of event.
