“We rented the entire building and had it all to ourselves!”
Those words from a new bride are emblematic of the experience many couples have at Flushing Town Hall as they tie the knot.
The 154-year-old landmark isn’t only a place to enjoy diverse performance, art and culture from across the globe, but the perfect setting for nuptials, birthday parties and other celebrations.
“Flushing Town Hall’s purpose as an arts organization has always been to bring people together,” says Ellen Kodadek, executive and artistic director at the venue. “We especially love weddings held here because that is the ultimate way of bringing people and their families together.”
She adds, “It’s one of the most precious memories that people can create for one another, and our programs in music, dance, and puppetry — perfect for all ages and groups — is another way that we create long-lasting memories for those who enjoy our year-long programs.”
Flushing Town Hall has evolved into a popular wedding destination, set apart from bustling Main Street in downtown Flushing and within walking distance of a new host of hotels (perfect for out-of-town guests).
Flushing Town Hall’s theatre was recently renovated, so it can be reconfigured to meet any couple’s specific needs and accommodate seating for up to 190 guests. Downstairs, there is a gallery, the perfect location for a reception or more intimate dinner or ceremony, with French doors leading to an outdoor garden, a 2,000-square-foot oasis.
Wedding parties also enjoy the ability to select their own caterers, and extremely affordable rates. Said another newlywed, “Can I just say that I absolutely love and adore this space? It’s unique — filled with lots of character and history.”
