The Washington Pavilion is the most beautiful reception venue that I have ever seen. The colors & choices for the back drop (Cyclorama) and the Arts Night Lighting were amazing. The atmosphere are wonderful. Allyson Kasch and her staff were exceptional to work with. They went above and beyond what we expected; very professional in every area. I would recommend this venue to everyone, and I'm looking forward to attending a reception there in the future!

Wedding ceremony venue
I cannot day enough about how awesome Alyson is at the Washington Pavilion! She was so amazing to work with through the whole wedding process. We held our ceremony in the visual arts center and it was stunning. It was such a unique space to get married in and I am so thankful we decided on this location for this special occasion. I would highly recommend everyone to look into this space for smaller weddings!

The Washington Pavilion staff was completely dedicated to providing an easy, highly customize-able, and beautiful experience for my husband and I's reception. The picture I attached doesn't even do the space justice! All of our guests complimented the stage's elegance...and the price is fairly affordable as well. The Washington Pavilion has an in-house caterer (Leonardo's Cafe) - we had the pasta buffet, which was absolutely delicious and received many compliments from our guests. The Pavilion also has large dressing rooms with huge mirrors and vanity lights, which makes for a fun place for the ladies to get ready in the morning. If you're looking for a unique and memorable venue, this place is it! We can't recommend this place enough. (Dustin and Chelsea, married 7/7/18).
Wonderful historic location with an ambiance you will not find at very many places. Definite place to check out for a wedding in the Sioux Falls area.
