eisenhower Pioneer Village is proud to offer a rustic and affordable wedding and event venue set just outside of Perham, Minnesota. From the time you set foot on the beautiful park-like setting, dotted with historic buildings, you will enjoy the little slice of country. Whether you are looking to have your dream ceremony, reception and dance all on site, or if you are planning for only a reception, reunion, corporate event or party, Pioneer Village is here to help your vision come to life.

With a relaxed setting that allows you to bring in your own food or work with caterers, Pioneer Village is memorable experience. Historic buildings have been moved into the park, including the rustic Grandview Heights Ballroom, which includes a stage, seating for up to 300 people, a dance floor, a full service bar and two restrooms for men and women. Outdoors there is a small bandstand, and buildings such as an old barn or chapel that make great wedding backdrops. A catering prep building is also on-site, with a fridge, stove and freezer. Contact us and set up a time to get a first-hand look.
