    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.

    Allen County War Memorial Coliseum's reply:

    Thank you Kimberly and Jason! It had been a long time since there was a banquet (or a wedding ceremony) in the arena. Thanks for being great to work with! All the best to you and the boys.

    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.

    Allen County War Memorial Coliseum's reply:

    Thank you so much, Rachael and Blake, for your trust in the Coliseum team! We wish you and your families all the best!
