Weddings at Kennedy School

We also host

meetingssocial events


Imagine the fun you and your guests will have at the Kennedy School, a 1911 building that was lauded by Ladies' Home Journal for its innovative one-story architecture, back in the day. Today, visitors stay overnight in classrooms-turned-guestrooms (complete with original chalkboards), have a bite to eat in the old cafeteria (now our Courtyard Restaurant) and grab a drink in either the Honors Bar or the Detention Bar, depending on your mood. And that's just the beginning.

We have several event spaces, both indoors and out, from which you can choose, accommodating up to 200 guests. It is a wedding venue unlike any other — and no one will be sent to the principal's office, we promise. (Just don't start a food fight at the reception.) 

Why plan your event with McMenamins?

  • No additional room rental fee once the food and beverage minimum is reached.

  • The food and beverage minimum includes wait staff and bartenders, indoor tables and chairs, china, flatware, glassware, and linens.

  • Unique venue locations, for big and small events, inside and out.

  • Your sales coordinator will assist in planning all venue details leading up to your event.

  • Full onsite catering with accommodations for dietary restrictions.

  • McMenamins handcrafted ales, wines and spirits which are only available at our locations.
     

McMenamins follows state and CDC guidelines for COVID safety, including the following:

  • Masks are required at all times on McMenamins properties, unless seated and actively eating or drinking.
  • We comply with current table capacity guidelines by state.
  • Dining and reception tables are spaced at least six feet apart.
  • Guests queuing for food or beverage must adhere to proper social distancing standards.
  • Event staff and vendors are included in the maximum allowed capacity.
