    Awesome venue!

    We hosted our annual company holiday party at The Rust Belt and we were very pleased. The space itself is gorgeous on it's own and Christina was awesome and very easy to work with. We got so many compliments on how unique and comfortable the space was. Thanks again Christina!

    Venue Perfection

    My experience with The Rust Belt Market was perfect. This venue is unique, beautiful & so easy to work with. The service was great, and I highly recommend using Holiday Market - who is one of their preferred catering vendors. If you are looking for a setting out of the ordinary, this is the place for you.
