A high school prom is a right of passage for American students. Whether it be a junior prom, a senior prom, or a Homecoming prom, the prom will be one of those special, permanent memories a person will have for the rest of his or her life.

The prom often has two stages. The first is the actual dance/event, complete with Prom King and Prom Queen, tuxedos, suits, lavish dresses, and live music. The second stage includes a dinner, often held before the dance, and a prom party held afterwards.

We are Tarrant Events Center, a premier event hall rental serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Whether you live in Fort Worth or not, the information we will share with you in this article applies for most events and the event space rentals where the events will be held. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information and answers to your questions.

The prom party

The prom party can either be held at the home of a student, or held at some event room rental.  Considering the importance of the event, a once-in-a-lifetime event, the party is very likely to be held at an event hall.  Yes, the cost is extra, but many parents consider this event to be so important that they are willing to pay extra for a quality event space rental.

What you want in an event center

There are several things you should insist upon for a prom event center. They would include the following:

  • Tables and chairs
  • WiFi
  • Video monitors and a good sound system
  • Easy access for loading and unloading
  • Flexibility in floor plans
  • A finishing kitchen
  • Stage for live entertainment, and dance floor space

Let’s look at Tarrant Events Center for an example of a prom venue

The following information will provide you with a backdrop, of sorts, what to expect when you rent a prom venue.  The amenities you receive at Tarrant Events Center may or may not be available at all event space rentals. We only share this with you so you can compare with other venues.

Tarrant Events Center offers a choice of ten floor plans. We do this because we know not all visions are the same.  We give you options so your vision can be obtained. We also offer a moveable stage, for the same reason.

We have a finishing kitchen where food can be kept warm, if you have caterers, or where you can prepare food if you are doing it yourself.

We have six large video monitors so that no matter where you are seated you have a good view of the activities. We have a state-of-the art sound system for that entertainment, and we have WiFi.

In addition to the indoor venue, we also have over one-acre of landscaped grounds, and two VIP rooms in addition to the main dance and dining room.

Unlike many party venues, we offer half-day and full-day rentals, and perhaps most-importantly, we offer all-inclusive pricing, meaning there are no hidden costs. We take reservations a full-year in advance.

That is what you can expect from Tarrant Events Center. Consider it the gold standard for event centers.  Will you find all of what we offer in Des Moines or Topeka? Maybe, maybe not, but at least you now know what you should get for your prom budget.
