Located in the heart of West Des Moines, an event at Decades will not only create memories but ones that last a lifetime. Our specially designed space blends the antiquated with the modern and offers over 5,000 square feet of space for up to 225 guests. If you’re looking for a unique space to host your next event--whether that’s a wedding, birthday party, corporate event, or special occasion--look no further than Decades Event Center!

If you decide to host your next event at Decades, your investment will give you two on-site suites that offer the perfect place to get ready, the option to rent additional in-house decor, a fully stocked bar with optional packages for your guests, an event lead for the day of your event, and so much more! Also included, for your convenience and ease when planning your event, is ample parking in our adjacent lot and access to premier partnerships with local hotels with shuttling services, caterers, photographers, and that’s just to name a few.

While we take care of set up and tear down, we are also more than happy to assist with any other needs you may have while planning the perfect event. From the tour to the last dance, we want to ensure you have the least amount of stress, so you can also enjoy your event alongside your guests.
