    Awesome staff and venue!

    Kaylee Hall and the river city extreme team went above and beyond to make sure our rehearsal and special day ran smoothly! Even with such a short time of trying to get everything into place they pulled it off and made us feel incredibly at ease. As a bride they took all those last minute worries and handled it all. Would recommend again and again!

    Above and beyond! Even if you're based in the Twin Cities, it's worth the logistics to hold your wedding at River City Extreme!

    Our guests had a memorable and SUPER FUN wedding experience thanks to this venue! Everyone really enjoyed the opportunity to bowl and play games. The staff was nothing but delightful to work with and even went out of their way to accommodate and fully support our special requests for a fully vegan menu and to avoid single-use plastic. We were party planning on a budget and definitely felt the value was top notch. Everything that we expected was delivered exactly as expected, even with all our wacky extra requests. And if you're like us and based in the Twin Cities, I also recommend Lorenz Bus Service if you're looking for a company to shuttle your party out to Monticello! The distance was a big concern to me when I was shopping for venues, but take it from me---you can make it work! The extra logistics planning was definitely worthwhile. If you're looking for a wedding venue that has something for everyone, is fully personal and customizable but still kind to your budget, you will not find better than River City Extreme!

    Excellent Venue in Monticello, MN

    The Monticello Ballroom in the River City Extreme was a lovely venue with excellent food, easy to work with and professional staff and is very affordable! Mia was very responsive and helpful. The food was very good! Everyone told me how good the food was and had an amazing time. I would highly recommend the RCE Monti Ballroom to anyone looking in the area for a venue.
