Best Decision for our Wedding - An Eventective User from Louisville, Kentucky

There are no venues in or around Louisville quite like this one - this all-inclusive/full service venue is exactly what we had been searching for. Glenn worked with us to put together our own personalized package based on our needs for our special day. You can do as much or as little for your event as you’d like, and Glenn will handle the rest. We are so grateful to have been able to celebrate our wedding at the Belknap - we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

Beautiful and Memorable - An Eventective User from Louisville , KY

We had our New Year’s Eve church event at the back Belknap Event Center. It was amazing to see all of the beautiful Decour and experience a wonderful time together at this location. The area where people receive their food was set up in a pristine manner, and the perfect event music was playing for us when we walked in the door. It was very easy to go in, focus on having a good time, and then leaving.

Management Response
We are so happy to hear that you loved everything. We look forward to having you back again. Until then God Bless to you and yours.
Definitely Recommend - An Eventective User from Crestwood , Ky

We had our daughters sweet 16 party at the Belknap Event Center and it turned out to be great! I told them what we wanted and they took care of the rest! Decorating, dj, taco bar, Photo Booth and bartender (for the adults). Took all the stress out of the planning! We got tons of compliments on how wonderful the food was! We definitely recommend if you are looking for a great place to throw a party!!

Fantastic event location! - An Eventective User from Louisville, KY

We were looking for a unique location to host a memorable night to celebrate a 50th anniversary. Belknap Event Center knocked it out of the park! The arrangements were fantastic. A fun filled evening of celebration, dancing, music, and food definitely exceeded our expectations. The addition of the photo booth was enjoyed by everyone in attendance. We highly recommend this phenomenal event space for whatever you are doing.

Management Response
Thank you so much for the review...God Bless to you and yours.
Stress Free - An Eventective User from Louisville , KY

Have used them for 2 weddings & 3 business events. Takes the worry and stress out of planning and orchestrating these events. And they prove to be less expensive than other options. Highly recommend!

Great place to have an Event!! - An Eventective User

In this COVID pandemic, it was difficult to find a venue to host a Baby Shower for 25-30 people. This venue was perfect!! We were able to keep the tables 6 feet apart and there were additional spaces which allowed for social distancing. I would highly recommend this space. It is very clean and well maintained.

Thank you so much for the great review. God bless you and yours.
