About River Market Event Place

River Market Event Place is a modern banquet hall wedding venue based in the historic River Market District of Kansas City, Missouri. The space is designed to be versatile, and welcomes the creative vision of each couple who rents the venue. With an atmosphere of minimalistic charm, the pet-friendly and insurance-covered facility is elegantly outfitted with the basic needs to host wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners.

Facilities and Capacity
The 4,000-square-foot urban venue features 20-foot ceilings, several mezzanine levels, a bridal loft, and retracting glass doors that open to a tree-lit patio. The interior finishes contain rich hardwood, concrete floors, and sleek metal, giving couples a unique space to hold their event. Couples may invite up to 150 guests for seated dinners inside, with additional seating on the tented patio space, or up to 225 for a cocktail reception. The space also boasts a wood-burning fireplace, a premium in-house sound system and lighting, a mounted projector, a flat screen TV, street level access for vendors and guests, and a fully equipped kitchen prep area for caterers. A bridal loft and use of the Airstream lounge are available to the wedding party prior to the ceremony. Parking on-site is available for guests, and the venue is also wheelchair accessible.

The event planner can also provide day-of coordination services, ensuring a couple’s event runs as smoothly as possible.

    RMEP was the PERFECT location for our rehearsal dinner! We had about 100 guests and the space was perfect for that amount of people. The bartenders were quick and kept our guests happy. We used their audio equipment and uplighting which made for the perfect ambiance. Jenna was such a joy to work with! She was organized and very on top of every detail for our event. Would definitely recommend using this venue for your event!!

    The River Market Event Space is such a great wedding venue. They will take care of you in every aspect. The venue is so light and airy with very natural decor allowing you do really transform the space to your own. It's also just as beautiful as is.

    River Market Event Place is one of my top venues in the city. It has a very modern, chic feel that is perfect for the contemporary bride. The venue itself is great, but it is also a small part of the perfection that comes with hosting your event here. The staff is AMAZING! It's hard to find a more organized, flexible, and relaxed staff in the business!
