About

​The Wright Place - Events is a locally owned and operated business, established in the Fall of 2009. When envisioning the event venue we wanted to have a unique space that was big and open for a variety of uses. Wedding Receptions, Graduation and Retirement Parties, Baby Showers, Holiday & Birthday Parties, Business meetings & conferences, and any other event.

The Wright Place - Events took the time to create a unique venue that is open to possibilities, from weddings to corporate trainings. A space that transitions its self from a small intimate gathering to a large celebration, and reserved enough for your business meetings. It simply is The Wright Place!

The Wright Place - Events is a standalone facility, giving you the freedom to make catering choices strictly based on your likes, needs, and specific budget. Contact us to find out more about how a standalone center is a cost effective alternative to exclusive facilities.

The Wright Place - Events is located just minutes from Des Moines, the Des Moines Metro, and The Des Moines International Airport. Easily accessible from I-35, I-80, Hwy 5 Bypass and Hwy 28. Several local hotels provide shuttle/safe ride services to and from The Wright Place - Events.

All inclusive. Excellent customer service. Clean venue. Close to Des Moines without the crazy prices. Janet was fantastic to work with - very professional, super friendly, and experienced. Plus, the DoubleTree by Hilton on Fleur provided a pickup service from here, so that was really helpful.
