Lake Etta Banquet Hall is the perfect place to celebrate your special day.  The beautifully decorated hall can accommodate up to 200 people and includes a dance floor, as well as bar.  Doors open to a patio overlooking the lake with an adjoining path leading to the wedding pergola.  All areas are handicapped accessible.  It's a wonderful place for weddings, parties, banquets, business meetings and more.   

What makes Lake Etta special?  The wedding and reception can be held in one location with beautiful backgrounds for photographs. People tell us they like how easy it is to get to the hall and they especially enjoy the atmosphere inside the building.  The large entrance permits the wedding party to easily greet guests before they enter the hall. 

The wedding pergola is beautiful especially when the flowers are blooming, which is from spring through fall.  The view from inside the hall overlooking the lake and the pergola connects the hall with the park.  

Many boopergolakings are from people who have attended an event at Lake Etta Banquet Hall and have experienced the high quality of food and customer service.  People appreciate the reasonable fees, the beauty of the facility - and the first class set up.  

Lake Etta welcomes you. Staff are anxious to work with you to meet all your meeting or wedding wishes.


From the convenient parking to the outdoor setting, Lake Etta specializes in details. Ask about "extras" available to fit your needs.
