We held our wedding reception at the Hockessin Memorial Hall in October. It was beautiful. You would never believe that the location was a fire hall. They had a gorgeous tapestry coming down from the ceiling interwoven with Christmas lights, inside a huge open space. Everything is newly remodeled and clean. The manager, Sarah Roberts, was incredibly easy to work with, providing open lines of communication and responding quickly to each of our many concerns. Decorations, a variety of food options, a couple of different dessert providers (including Cakes by Kim,) and an open bar were all included in one, easy to understand, inexpensive package. There were no hidden fees, “upsales,” or ploys to draw more money out of us. For one very competitive low price, my bride and I were able to have a wonderful setting for our reception.

We are very glad we chose Hockessin Memorial Hall for our reception venue. Sarah was phenomenal, and catered to our every need. Our theme was a little less traditional (based on a board game), and we had some quirky requests-- such as rolling dice to announce tables for dinner. Sarah worked hard to ensure that we were able to incorporate all of our ideas and that the evening ran smoothly. She was very responsive and helped our event go off without a hitch. They also have several packages to choose from and you can really design your event to fit your price and needs. It was a plus that the inside of the venue is already so nice that you do not have to do a lot of decorations to make it feel classy. We would definitely recommend Hockessin-- great value and great service!Sent on 08/04/2018

There aren't enough positive words we can say about Sarah. From the time we booked 2 years ago all the way through the end of our reception she had made the process extremely easy. She answered every question we had and even made suggestions that we used. We can't thank the staff at Hockessin enough for everything they did to make our reception smooth and flawless.Sent on 05/21/2017
