Our daughter had her wedding reception in the banquet hall. Everything was beautiful and the staff went out of their way to make everything run smoothly. Be sure to talk with Stephanie. She knows all about making an event successful. Mariah was our 'assistant' and she was well worth the extra charge. She took care of things behind the scenes so we could simply enjoy the celebration. The bartender was excellent.Sent on 10/10/2014
When I first called this venue I was about in tears at how much the wedding was going to cost. Most venues require that you use their caterer and they charge more than I could afford. Not only did the 20th Century Center not have a required caterer, Greg told me about Two Brothers BBQ. They were reasonable and delicious. I wouldn't have even known about them as caterers if it hadn't been for Greg at 20th Century.
My daughter's maid of honor rented the Victorian Parlor for the wedding shower and it was also a lovely event.

The venue, it's location, staff, owners, appearance and all of the buildings finish was tremendous. My wife and I paid for this part of our son's wedding and could not be happier with the way it worked out. From start to finish, the owners worked with us and made it an almost perfect evening. Almost only because we had to end it sometime and we just didn't want to!Sent on 06/16/2014
I have to tell you that we read some of the previous reviews and they were heavily mixed with great comments from most but a couple of not so great so you can't help but wonder. Whoever the negative reviewers were - I can't help but think there were some personal issues rather than the property issues as indicated. The interior was beautiful and well kept, there was plenty of parking. The owners were onsite and available with help when requested. The bartender was a great guy that responded to every request willingly and professionally. I could go on and on but if you are reading this, you've gotten the intent which was to say that this is a great place to have your reception, party, wedding, or whatever it may be!

We recently got married and had our reception at the 20th Century Center in downtown Wichita and we have only wonderful memories to reflect back on. The building is amazing! We looked and looked for a venue with old-fashioned glamour and this had it in spades. The Chapel is simply beautiful and the Grand Banquet Hall looked stunning with our chair covers and centerpieces. The venue is VERY affordable and allows for open catering. Let me suggest Blue Moon catering for your catering needs. They were outstanding! The staff was very accommodating, thanks to Steffanie and Amy for their attention to detail. This is a building that has to be seen to be believed!Sent on 06/21/2011
20th Century Center's reply:We are always happy when we have a satisfied client. Thank you for using our facility and best of luck in the future.
One of my favorite venues to photograph in. This venue has a very timeless feel to it.
