River City Venues

Welcome to the River City Venues, the most sophisticated and sprawling event complex on the Mississippi. Whether you have an intimate group of 25, or a dynamic group of 25,000, our expert event planners will make your event shine. And when we say the sky is the limit, we mean it—enjoy the stars, the moon, and even fireworks from one of our various riverfront spaces!

If you can dream it, we can build it. Whether you’re organizing an elegant fundraiser, or hosting an international corporate event, we have the experience and expertise.

Maybe your guests would like to meander through the grounds of our elegant oak-shaded antebellum mansion on their way to the dance floor in our extravagant River City Ballroom? Or maybe they’ll enjoy the local music scene at one of our impressive outdoor concert stages, before meeting friends for a moonlit nightcap under our soaring outdoor tent?

New Orleans is known for its music, its food, and its culture, and it’s no surprise we know how to expertly throw an unforgettable event!
