The Rochester Event Center was the one and only place we were planning on having our reception as we were 100% positive it would be the best place in town to hold it and we were not disappointed. In fact, most of all our guests complimented the staff, the food and the atmosphere. They were extremely helpful in planning and organizing everything and the wait staff was very friendly and willing to go above and beyond our expectations. It was amazing!

The reception hall can hold up to 500 people and was very spacious even with a buffet table, head table, DJ and dance floor. Nothing had to be moved in order to use the entire dance floor. They provide table linens if you wish and have a very accomodating staff. The Event Center is very new to Rochester and is kept very clean.
