Plan Your Event

The Perfect Venue for Your Event

Whether its a wedding reception, anniversary, retirement, corporate party, or class reunion, Johnson Hall may be just the right location for your needs! This large and open space holds up to 500 people, but can flexibly accommodate smaller groups as well. The available catering kitchen, ample restrooms, and convenient parking all make Johnson Hall ideal for groups large and small! A secure office is also available to use as headquarters or to store gifts. Please note: for events serving alcohol, a Nicollet County Sheriff’s Reserve must be contracted and present.
