Jingle All The Way! Your Ultimate Minnesota Holiday Party Planning Guide

Sharing the season with your team or customers is the greatest gift of all! While we can’t guarantee your guests will be dashing through the snow, we can assure you these holiday halls are sure to leave them laughing as they go to your Minnesota holiday party! Whether located in a Minnesota event center or hotel ballroom, halls offer a multitude of amenities, catering options, and wide open spaces that you simply can’t find anywhere else.

With the twinkling lights of a festive city scape, cozy, comfortable rooms on site, mouthwatering menu options and spacious event facilities, a hotel banquet hall downtown might just be at the top of your wish list. With the option of an overnight stay for your guests, plus the convenience of a centrally located urban venue, Minneapolis hotels like Chambers Hotel, Aloft Minneapolis and Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot, are like the gifts that keep on giving. On-site bar/lounge, nearby restaurants and walking distance to shopping, theaters and more, might just tempt your attendees to gift themselves with more than a single night’s stay.

However, if your guests will be arriving via reindeer-pulled sleigh or the more contemporary airplane, it might be nice to claim a space a little closer to the airport. Many airport hotels not only offer shuttle services for their guests, but boast gorgeous guest rooms, onsite restaurants, lounges and catering, amazing banquet spaces, as well as business centers, fitness centers, and indoor pools. For these plus other amenities galore, your guests will have a holly jolly time at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Bloomington | Minneapolis, JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America in Bloomington, Holiday Inn & Suites Minneapolis | Lakeville in Lakeville or the elegant Omni Viking Lakes Hotel home of the Minnesota Vikings in Eagan.

Baby, it might be cold outside, but your event is really going to heat up when it’s held at an event center. Spacious ballrooms, onsite catering of buffet or plated dinners, professional staff, beverage service, free parking and affordability make them something you’d probably ask Santa to deliver. But there’s no need when all that and more is available at places like the Bunker Hills Event Center, Rush Creek Golf Club, St. Paul Saints at CHS Field, Mall of America | Nickelodeon Universe or Minnesota Horse & Hunt Club.

There’s nothing more falalalala fun than eventing at a casino. Not only do they typically offer banquet halls that hold hundreds, but your guests can also revel in exceptional food and service, onsite hotels, onsite shopping, renowned entertainment, and of course, gaming. Bet you can’t find anyplace better, so when it comes time to choose you’ll definitely want to consider Grand Casino Hinckley, Grand Casino Mille Lacs, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel or Treasure Island Resort & Casino.

Reindeer games really ramp up at reception halls. Whether they’re onsite at entertainment destinations like Canterbury Park with year-round gaming and racing or the Medina Entertainment Center.

It’s really the most wonderful time of the year when you can have a holiday happening at a space that’s beyond grand. Consider the classics with a soiree at that’s seasonably splendid at the Walker Onsite Events & Catering, Landmark Center, or Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

Big or small, when you deck those halls, your event is sure to rock all the way around the yuletide tree! Check out our complete listing of Minnesota banquet halls and hotel banquet halls for events here.
