Our spaces can accommodate smaller, more intimate groups of 10, to larger scale events upwards of 75 people. Whether you're looking for a fun and casual feel, complete with ballpark fare, or a more upscale setting with the most current trends from the culinary world, we have the bases covered.

Want to add entertainment to your special day? The RubberDucks work with countless vendors from acoustic trios and barbershop quartets, to balloon artists and stitlt walkers, and everything in between.
