About Above the Valley Event Center

This recently renovated event center, an incomparable blend of breathtaking views, ample gathering spaces and award-winning food and beverage, is operated by the owners of highly regarded Harrison's Wine Grill & Catering. Located atop the Mt. Nittany ridge, overlooking the picturesque countryside and adjacent mountains, guests will be surrounded by the historic beauty of scenic Happy Valley while celebrating weddings and special occasions. Above the Valley is also a favorite Rehearsal Dinner venue. Its casual but upscale feel makes for a relaxing environment for the wedding party as wedding festivities get underway.

This tiered, four-level building has celebration space for as many as 200+ seated guests. There are multiple spaces for outdoor viewing, including outdoor decks, railed walkways, and a 400 square foot glassed in porch with sliding windows, perched over the mountainside. Bars and restrooms are located on all three levels. Each level may be reserved separately, with pricing also available for use of multiple levels or the entire facility.

    Great Venue

    Everyone was so amazing at Above the Valley. They were always very quick to answer any questions that I had and very flexible to any changes and requests I had. All of our guests had a great time. They found the view to be very impressive. We had several picky eaters in attendance, but everyone loved all the food. The mac and cheese was the favorite.

    The Harrison team was very helpful and understanding to our wedding needs. We worked closely with Natalie who was very responsive and helped us through the entire process. We met with her multiple times at the venue, regarding various questions we had, and even on the food menu. She even held my dress so I could walk up to the highest level without troubles. We had a very enjoyable evening and the set-up, food, and all staff exceeded our expectations.

    We held our son's summer wedding rehearsal dinner at Above the Valley for several reasons. The new facility has balconies and patios for guests to peruse the scenic views in good weather. Free parking meant our guests didn't hassle finding parking and getting tickets.
    I previously attended an open house at the facility to familiarize myself with their cuisine for business functions so I knew the food was good and would be a change from the normal fare.

    We requested the carving station even though it was slightly more expensive. It proved to be well worth it as the beef was extraordinary. A chef was among our guests so I cringed at the thought of his critique of our dinner. He, as well as the rest of our guests, raved about the food. You could cut the meat with your fork, the vegetables were crisp and fresh, the desserts were the perfect size and variety and the menu was varied enough for our vegetarians and vegans. Guests asked if the same caterer would be at the wedding. When we said yes, people cheered and the bride's mother was relieved knowing the wedding meal was in good hands.

    Overall we were extremely pleased we used Harrison's Catering. My mother was a caterer when I was growing up and I remember there was always one or two people who wouldn't like something. I can say that we had zero complaints about the meal and plenty of thanks for putting on a great evening. I would wholeheartedly use Harrison's again.
