Wheelhouse Event Center

The Wheelhouse Event Center is now closed. Premium office space is now offered. Please check us out!

The Wheelhouse is the newest Event Center in Albany. Depending on what type of event, there are two floors to choose from. The top floor of the Wheelhouse overlooks the Willamette River, which creates an amazing background for any event. Smaller weddings, receptions, reunions, corporate holiday parties, and other special events all fit into this beautiful location. The first floor is perfect for larger events, catered dinners, or events with children. There is no carpet and it has its own separate entrance from the main building, which makes for easy entry, set up and clean up. There are double doors that have direct access to the riverfront which allows your guests to get some fresh air and to watch the birds and fish that play in the river in front of the Wheelhouse. A small wedding could be held on the riverfront with the reception being inside, and if it happens to rain, the ground floor has plenty of room for both to be set up at the same time. Lighting can be done with overhead lights or with white ambiance lights that are currently hanging from the ceiling. Come and check out this beautiful location for yourself!
