If you are doing a search for small banquet halls near me, the first thing you need to decide is what “near me” means.  Is “near me” within five miles? Is it within ten miles? Twenty?  This is an important consideration and, believe it or not, it can affect the price you are going to pay.  Let’s take a look at this matter in this article, and if you have any other questions you can call us at Tarrant Events Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

What does “near me” mean to you?

Only you can answer that question, but let us give you something to think about during your venue rental search.

The price of a banquet hall is based on several criteria, including:

  • Season
  • Competition
  • Location
  • What is included in the price

Let’s look at each of these briefly.

The season

If you are looking for a banquet hall during graduation season, i.e. May and June,  you just might find a higher price than, say, November or February.


The simple law of supply and demand comes into play the more banquet halls you have to choose from.  Fort Worth has many banquet halls, so a place like Tarrant Events Center will be available at a reasonable price to match the competition.  If your supply of halls is small, the price most likely will be higher.


Location matters!  A banquet hall in a popular section of the city will cost more than a banquet hall in a rundown section of the city, or one twenty miles out in the country.

What is included in the price?

Are you just renting the banquet hall, like Tarrant Events Center (what is known as a turnkey location), or are you also paying for a package deal which included caterers, a wait staff, a clean-up staff, and musicians?  Money is saved by renting a hall like the Tarrant Events Center because you can then negotiate with vendors and caterers for the best price possible for amenities.

Due diligence will save you money

We have given you a lot to think about, but all of it is important.  Our advice: start this process early, as in one year early.   You need at least a year to take care of all of the preparations and make sure you get what you want, when you want it.  Wait until the last minute and “renter beware!”
