The Merou Grotto is one of the landmark dance halls with nearly 2700 square feet of hardwood dance floor. Operating primarily as a Venue Location of Choice, we regularly host Wedding Receptions, Birthday and Anniversary Parties as well as Quinceañeras.
Merou Grotto has served as a respite for many organizations and peoples to have a local getaway from the stresses of daily life. Over the decades we have played host to collegiate rowing teams, multi-cultural events, fraternal charities, as well as a vast history in the Birthdays, Quinceañera, Anniversaries and of course Weddings and Vows thereof for countless newlyweds. We are more than just an event venue ... our property is located immediately adjacent to the Wabash River north of the Downtown Core. The several acres of forest on the hillside serve as homes for Brown Tail Hawks, Brown and Common Owls, while our river front is host to fishing bars for Heron and Cranes. In the past the Fraternity was able to be a joy-filled organization that did many great works. It is now headed towards it again.
Our wedding venue is located on a 200 acre Christmas tree farm located about 20 minutes northeast of Monticello, Indiana. We offer wedding ceremony and reception packages combined, as well as separate wedding ceremony or reception packages depending on your specific needs.
