Featured in Minnesota Bride and named “one of Minneapolis’s most unique wedding venues” by Lavender Magazine, The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park is the perfect spot for your wedding, especially if you and your new life partner love the outdoors! The amazing trails, bridges, and skyline views will make a beautiful backdrop for your photos no matter the season.
Start your celebration in one of our several beautiful outdoor locations for ceremonies – from the narrow pathway lined with tall timber columns along the building’s south side, perfect for a small ceremony, to more private green spaces of the park.
After the ceremony, bring the beauty of the park inside to the celebration. Our reception space, the Great Hall, has Douglas Fir beam structures and ceilings, beautiful custom wood tables, and two entire walls of windows that enhance the natural feel of the venue. There is also a grass lawn adjacent to the outdoor patio, which provides a wonderful area for guests to enjoy outdoor games.
“After a two-year event hiatus, we chose The Trailhead as the venue for our first in-person event because of the spacious Great Hall and picturesque outdoor space. The team was an absolute dream to work with, especially Erika Grossman. They were always available to answer our questions, made it possible for us to bring our creative vision to life in the space, and tended to all our needs the evening of the event. It was a magical night and everything we hoped it would be for our community to gather again safely.”– Julie
“I wish I had known about The Trailhead as a venue long ago. The building is a perfect setting for personal or professional events. The staff is friendly and the backdrop of Theodore Wirth Regional Park is everything you could ask for. It’s an incredible community resource that more people need to know about!”– Nick
