About Us

​The Wright Place - Events is a locally owned and operated business, established in the Fall of 2009.  When envisioning the event venue we wanted to have a unique space that was big and open for a variety of uses. Wedding Receptions, Graduation and Retirement Parties, Baby Showers, Holiday & Birthday Parties, Business meetings & conferences, and any other event.


The Wright Place - Events took the time to create a unique venue that is open to possibilities, from weddings to corporate trainings.  A space that transitions its self from a small intimate gathering to a large celebration, and reserved enough for your business meetings. It simply is The Wright Place!


The Wright Place - Events is a standalone facility, giving you the freedom to make catering choices strictly based on your likes, needs, and specific budget.  Contact us to find out more about how a standalone center is a cost effective alternative to exclusive facilities.


The Wright Place - Events is located just minutes from Des Moines, the Des Moines Metro, and The Des Moines International Airport.  Easily accessible from I-35, I-80, Hwy 5 Bypass and Hwy 28.  Several local hotels provide shuttle/safe ride services to and from The Wright Place - Events.

Love Letters

We just loved working with the staff at The Wright Place.  We have rented the facility for a few functions and you can't beat the price!  The room is gorgeous, the kitchen is spacious and very functional, and there is ample parking.  Our rentals were smooth and easy and we will definitely be renting from them again! Highly recommended!

See how we are different from other venues.  


Our daughter was married in August of 2010; after looking at several venues for the perfect place for her reception; we chose The Wright Place.  All 220 of our guests fit in the room comfortably. Along with a great set up room; the kitchen is big enough for our caterer.  We would highly recommend The Wright Place to anyone looking for a place for a large crowd.  The staff is great to work with and VERY accommodating.

Jeff & Lisa

Finding a reception hall is one of the biggest and hardest decisions to make when planning a wedding. I can not speak more highly of The Wright Place and its staff!  In all the chaos that ensues with wedding planning, Janet was a lifesaver!  She made herself very accessible and replied very quickly with any questions I had for her.  She also had great ideas in setting up the space and had many of the extras available to rent! The Wright Place is a blank canvas for you to dress up any way you want as well as giving you flexibility that we all dream of in a reception hall!
