About The Bushnell Banquet Center

The Bushnell Banquet Center is a large historic wedding and events venue located on the lower level of the Bushnell Building in Springfield, Ohio. The recently refurbished banquet hall venue is suitable for ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners.

Facilities and Capacity

The Bushnell Banquet Center is made up of three indoor event spaces and has a total capacity of 600 people. The Asa Bushnell Room seats 300 to 325 guests and features a sizable lighted dance floor, a portable stage, a mobile bar, and fridge freezer. The Wren room accommodates 180 to 190 guests and also features a bright dance floor and portable bar. The Cellar is a smaller space suitable for intimate events of up to 100 guests. The room features exposed brick walls, a wooden floor, unusual seating areas, and a bar built of hardwood and black ceramic tile.

Services Offered

All event spaces at The Bushnell Banquet Center are available the Friday before your event between 9 am and 9 pm, so you have time to decorate and arrange the room. Special packages are available if you’d like to hire more than one event space or the whole venue for your exclusive use. The site is available until 12.30 am, and setup, cleanup, tables, and chairs are included. The Bushnell Banquet Center is open to working with outside vendors, including bar and catering services, can provide lighting and sound, and assist with event rentals. The venue is wheelchair accessible, offers free undercover car parking, and is within walking distance of a local hotel. A free wedding packet is available to couples planning their wedding; the packet includes rate cards and floor plans for each event space, a wedding planner book, and a list of recommended vendors with exclusive discounts.

History

The Bushnell Banquet Center is located inside the lower floor of the historic Bushnell Building which was built in three stages throughout the 1800s and 1900s. In 1939, the Edward Wren Company acquired the Bushnell Building and relocated its high street retail store to the property. The building then became known by locals as “Wren’s,” and it became Springfield’s largest and most successful upscale store - the shopping mecca of Downtown for decades.

    Awesome Location in Springfield!

    Bushnell Banquet Center is a great place for your wedding in Springfield! The service is amazing, especially working with Lisa Behr on booking, vendors, and all the details! I held my wedding at the Bushnell in April 2015 using the largest room for my ceremony and reception and the cellar for my cocktail hour. You can transform the rooms into so many different themes and the building naturally lends itself as a beautiful backdrop. Don’t pass up this awesome venue!
