My wedding reception was at The Fawcett Event Center and it was an incredible night! The space was decorated amazingly, the staff was incredibly professional, and the food was delicious (family and friends still talk about it!) My event coordinator was Nicole Ewing and she managed the event flawlessly! She was attentive to all of our needs on our wedding day and every day leading up to the event. There was a lot of last-minute craziness the week of our wedding, and Nicole was flexible and understanding through it all. I recommend this venue and the wonderful staff for any event!Sent on 08/15/2018

Working with Amanda and Terrie at the Fawcett Center was very enjoyable. Amanda is very patient, understanding, and kind. She is very organized and planned above all. Given the many details & curve balls we threw (excuse us inexperienced to-weds), Amanda took all of them with grace and kindness. For example, we were sometimes quite confused about what the center piece would be, how the room would look like, what the decoration should be. Amanda draws on her many years of experience and finds suitable solutions. The many visits we made on weekends are always greeted with warmth -- we really appreciate what she does or us.
Terrie is also very nice! Our cake lady changed delivery plan, I was initially worried this might be a problem for Fawcett Center since I didn't find an alternative notification method on the updated delivery time. But Terrie noticed the change and followed up with our lady and everything gets ironed smoothly. When we arrived and tried to tell Fawcett Center expecting delivery, Terrie was still there and assured us she got all the plans taken care of! Very professional and thorough!

I have played for an assortment of events at the Fawcett Center and each one was made special by the event staff. Logistically, it's so accessible and parking is no problem.
