Think it’s a little early to be planning for the holidays? Think again! Here at the Bayfront Convention Center, we are already planning and booking holiday parties! ‘Tis the season!
While we host a multitude of events inside the walls of the Bayfront Convention Center — ranging from weddings to concerts to Erie Insurance meetings — we also boast a healthy amount of holiday parties for organizations in Erie and in surrounding areas. As the holiday season quickly approaches, it is worth saying that we take special care to respect each group’s specific cultural background. Most of our clients do host holiday parties for their employees and families, but we are actively searching for other culturally diverse holidays.
The Bayfront Convention Center is the perfect venue for a gathering around the holidays. We have an array of space available from large ballrooms to small meeting spaces. The building boasts just under 70,000 square feet of meeting space. Our beautiful campus is transformed into a winter wonderland from the end of November until the beginning of January. It is a truly wonderful experience for any guest who enters the building. Whether it is a corporate Christmas party or an intimate dinner party with friends or family, we do it all! We have a talented culinary team that can customize and create the perfect menu! From specialty cocktails to a completely custom holiday themed menu, we love to make ideas a reality. The Convention Center is connected to the Sheraton Erie Bayfront and the Courtyard Marriott Bayfront hotels, making it very convenient for any out of town guests. Did I mention we have great views of the lake and downtown Erie?
We do still have space available for this coming holiday season! If you’re feeling particularly festive, feel free to contact us for details about hosting your own gathering this season!
