The Events Center includes everything you need for your big day from dressing rooms to catering kitchen to the latest in audio/visual equipment.

Venue number three is the Des Moines Heritage Center Plaza. The plaza, nestled amongst the depot and the events center, with commanding views of the state capitol, provides couples with the perfect venue for an outdoor wedding or reception or flexible activity space in concert with the depot or events center. The plaza can accommodate 300 to 400 guests.
