Company Meetings & Retreats ~

Southfork offers a professional-yet-relaxed environment for meetings and retreats that can't be replicated anywhere else on earth. Our distinctly different facility encourages creative thoughts and ideas, and offers an extensive array of meeting rooms for groups as small as 10 to as large as 2,000. Top quality audio-visual equipment, impeccable service, and a wide variety of affordable menu selections all combine to make Southfork the perfect location to "mix boots with business."

Offering the convenience of a full-service conference center that is just minutes from key areas of the Metroplex, Southfork also allows meeting attendees a chance to enjoy the "wide open spaces" so rare at other facilities.

Special team-building packages for a variety of themes and budgets are available, and our facility - with more than 300 acres - is perfect for that sort of activity. Best of all, we have two full-time corporate event planners on staff to help you plan your perfect company retreat. You'll never plan a meeting in a boring ballroom again!

Holiday Events & Company Picnics ~

Two of the most popular types of events at Southfork are holiday celebrations and corporate picnics, and for good reason.

Holiday entertaining takes on legendary proportions at Southfork. Impressive room decor, specialty centerpieces and festive high quality linen choices make holiday events at Southfork breathtaking as well as affordable. And our staff of professional planners makes holiday event coordination a breeze, just when you most need it.

Thousands of glittering lights illuminating the ranch grounds, coupled with tours of the elaborately decorated Ewing Mansion, set Southfork apart from other holiday event sites.

Local area companies and organizations find that Southfork is a perfect location for annual company picnics or summer family gatherings. We offer an endless array of themes, menu choices, and entertainment options.

Contact us to receive a full holiday or picnic packet (or better yet, both) or to schedule a time to come see the "Southfork difference" for yourself.

Family Reunions & Parties ~

We customize the event to fit your family's style and budget. Whether it's volleyball, horseshoes, chuck wagon dinners, s'more parties or formal dinners at the Mansion, our Family Reunion specialist, Sally Peavy will make it unforgettable.

Contact Sally via email or simply give us a call at (972) 442-7800.

Event Themes & Decor Options ~

Incredible possibilities await your event at Southfork Ranch. Because of the flexibility of our many ballrooms, we can create any theme and mood for your party. Because of our "western heritage," it is often assumed we host only western events or barbecue/steak dinners. While we love our "Texas roots" and western events, we regularly work with a wide variety of themes, menu options, and decor packages for an endless array of events.

Enhanced lighting, custom florals, specialty linens, and unique decor create a Moroccan-themed dinner party in our Braddock Ballroom. Specialty linens and florals help transform the Legends Ballroom into an elegant garden-inspired backdrop for rehearsal dinners.

Some of our favorite themes:

Mardi Gras Theme

Roaring Twenties

Circus Under the Big Top

Route 66

Cajun Fais Do Do

Tropical Nights

Viva Las Vegas

Beach Blanket Bingo

Out of Africa ~ Safari Theme

Texas Hoe-Down & Oil Baron's Ball

Grand Catering Options

All meals for Southfork events are masterfully prepared on-site by our extensive in-house Food and Beverage staff. We offer an endless array of menu options, ranging from cost-effective to lavish, including buffet menus, served luncheons and dinners, and wonderful food stations menus.

Whether you are planning a basic, no-nonsense company picnic or an elaborate VIP dinner, we can present you with a variety of menu options to make your event memorable and meet your budget.

We take pride in customizing, and love to develop a particular menu for an event theme or concept. Ask us about some of our themed menus and proposals with special menu selections based on theme, entertainment, decor, and other event components.

Now you may assume that because Southfork is a "ranch," the events we host are only those with a western theme and menu. Nothing could be further from the truth! Although we have a wonderful variety of western-inspired menus and wonderful western decor, the great majority of our events are of another theme entirely. Impressive served dinners, an array of themed buffet options, and a talented decor and floral staff ensures that we can create any event and menu you have in mind.
