Civic center events are traditionally held in civic centers, correct? That makes a certain amount of logical sense, does it not? The problem, though, is that not all towns have an event center, and an additional problem is that most civic centers are meant for very large gatherings.  What if your civic center event is only meant for fifty people?  Or thirty?  Do you really need a humongous hall for your civic center event?

What you need is a place like the Tarrant Events Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

Allow us to explain.  Even if you don’t live in Fort Worth, what we are about to tell you will apply in  your city as well.  And feel free to call us if you have questions.

What do you need for civic center events?

Let’s get down to the basics of event planning.  What do you really need for a civic center event?  A list of the basics would read like this:

  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Linens
  • Sound system
  • Monitors
  • Finished kitchen
  • Ample parking

In other words, any venue rental which has those basics can hold civic center events.  Any event space rental, like Tarrant Events Center, which offers those basic necessities, can be a corporate event space or a party rental venue or wedding venue or a convention center.

Put another way, a rose by any other name, is still a rose.

Don’t get hung up on the words “civic center” when planning your event.  Focus your search, instead, on event center or event venue.  You will increase your options and most likely find a more reasonable price for the rental.

What about the extras?

The extras, of course, are food and beverages and possible music and possibly special decorations – what do you do about those things?

You find the best deal available!  Our recommendation for food at Tarrant Events Center is to go with the food truck option.  We have several food truck operators we work closely with, and they all provide quality food at a quality price.  We also offer a finished kitchen if our clients should opt for a caterer.

You can always find a bartender to come in and handle your event, and if you are serious about saving money you can always decorate the event hall yourself.

What works at Tarrant Events Center will work in your town

You have options no matter where you live.  Look for a generic, turnkey venue rental like Tarrant Events Center for your civic center events.  Make sure there is ample parking plus overflow parking like you will find at Tarrant Events Center.  It would also be nice if there was an outdoor venue area as well as the indoor venue so that attendees can go outside during intermissions, similar to what you find at Tarrant Events Center with our one-acre of outdoor grounds.
