Best Day Ever!

Nathan and Brett were so easy to work with and extremely attentive to even the smallest detail. The coliseum has invested in Covid protective measures as well.. they have plexiglass barriers for all banquet buffets, dessert tables etc. it made our guest feel safe, protected and able to enjoy themselves! So many people thanked us for these measures and SO many guest told me it was the BEST reception they had ever attended! Thank you Nathan, Brett and the coliseum extended staff for making this event so magical. Highly recommend the coliseum! Rosie Roselle

Amazing!!!

Our wedding was affected by COVID-19 and so due to the size of the room that we chose for the reception at the Memorial Coliseum we had to choose another room. In the meantime of finding this all out, we had heard from the church that they had strict limitations on everything as well! So when we talked to the Coliseum about the reception room, we threw in another idea of using the Arena for both wedding and reception. They did some checking and made it happen. The Coliseum could not have been any better about helping us and working with us on our wedding/reception. If it weren't for the Coliseum being there for us, I honestly don't know what we would have done. Brett and Nathan were absolutely fantastic to work with and can not say enough good about them and the Coliseum. Also, making the goal horn happen during our first kiss as husband and wife was amazing and a fantastic surprise for my husband! The Memorial Coliseum outdid themselves on our reception and wedding and our wedding is something we will never forget and will be telling our grandkids when we are old.

They took the stress out of such a stressful day

The BEST venue in Fort Wayne. Hands down. Tasty food, AMAZING staff, so attentive, they do not nickel and dime you for everything (so nice since wedding’s can get expensive...😳) and their guidance helped me pull off the wedding of my dreams!! Everyone had nothing but great things to say about how beautiful everything was. Absolutely priceless experience for a not so high price. Need I say more? Do yourself a favor and have your wedding at the amazing Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
