The J.O. Sundstrom Building began its 134-year existence as a department store. The original owners both emigrated from Sweden. Jacob O. Sundstrom moved to Lindsborg with his dream of starting a new-concept department store, seen only in the metropolitan areas at that time. His dream came true with the store opening December 23, 1879 at the town's prime intersection. In 2011, the now city owned building, was redesigned and complete reconstruction of the building took place. The Sundstrom Conference Center opened in 2013. With over 15,000 square feet of space, the conference center boasts configurations to accommodate groups of four to 400. Situated in charming downtown Lindsborg, the Sundstrom is a perfect spot for wedding ceremony and receptions.
The Banquet Hall (1st Floor) has a built in dance floor, Audio/Visual system and a built in bar. The space can seat about 175 with a dance floor and 200 without the dance floor. Depending on the month, day of the week and time of the day the Banquet Hall can be rented for as little as $900 with a catering package.
The 2nd floor of the facility is the Dansstalle which means “Dance Hall” in Swedish! This space is much more open and has a hard floor allowing the dance floor to be set up anywhere in the space. The Dansstalle seats up to 355 with space for a dance floor. Depending on the month, day of the week and time of the day the Dansstalle can be rented for as little as $1,200 with a catering package.
All venue rentals include in-stock tables and chairs. The Sundstrom has full bar capabilities on both floors. All the alcohol must be purchased through the Sundstrom. A $25/hour/100 people bartender fee does apply to all facility rentals. Rental times are for five hours - meaning - when your guest arrive until the last dance. Extra hours can be purchased for $125/hour.
By catering your meal from the Sundstrom’s menu of local caterers, you have access to a full event staff to ensure your event is seamless. Table linens are included for all your tables. You can choose from white, black, gray or ivory as well as the same options for cloth napkins plus navy blue, purple, red and royal blue. Staff will provide room set-up, tear-down and clean-up included in your cost. A drink station with coffee, water and iced tea during the rental is also included. You are welcome to choose the baker of your choice for your wedding cake!
You can bring in catering from a licensed caterer. Fees for the Facility are different from the above prices. Items that were included in the Facility fee with a catering package are not included with outside catering. More information can be shared upon request.

Had excellent communication and service with Elizabeth at Sundstrom. Perfect venue as was very flexible. Food was DELICIOUS! Everyone raves about the baked chicken! Venue location, size and price was unbeatable. Bar service and staff were great. Even has TWO separate venue spaces in one building. Each with very different styles to fit everyone’s personality. Loved everything about the venue.Sent on 09/23/2018
