Truly the most unique, rustic venue in Rockford and the surrounding area. Beautiful, wooded 150 acre campus that offers endless options for indoor and outdoor weddings. Two areas for receptions, including the Lakeview rooms at the main museum center with outdoor patio and seating for up to 200 guests. For the rustic nature lovers, we offer a restored, two-story 1905 barn with soaring ceilings, private restrooms, custom bar and elevator. The barn is nestled on a 13 acre Victorian village that offers privacy and plenty of outdoor space for enjoyment. Say "I do" in one of our gorgeous gardens, the gazebo, the church or lakeside by the Millhouse. Wedding package price includes both your choice of ceremony spot and your choice of reception location.

    Wedding Coon-Holtapp

    We had our wedding 7/2/22 at Midway Village. It was awesome, and overall the price was good for a smaller chill wedding like we planned compared to other places. Ceremony was in the gardens and the reception was in the Lake View Room. We originally wanted the red barn but the flexibility of switching was very nice since we had half and half. We highly recommend Midway Village as a venue they are easy to work with.

    Midway Village Museum's reply:

    Thank you Alana!!! Cheers to you both. We wish you much happiness and success in the coming years

    Excellent experience with Midway Village

    Lisa Beardsworth is a wonderful person to work with and made everything smooth and less stressful before, during and after our wedding. Ceremony was in church and reception was in Barn. We had whole place to ourselves and our guest. We got married in May and the flowers just bloomed and look so beautiful.

    Midway Village Museum's reply:

    Awe thank you Barbara!! You two were a great couple to plan the day with. We are so happy for you both!
