What to Look for in a Dallas Winter Event Venue

If you’re planning a Christmas or winter event in Dallas, here are some simple strategies for choosing the perfect venue.  


Optimal Indoor and Outdoor Seating


A large group event like a wedding, reunion, or corporate party requires a lot of seating. But it’s not just tables and chairs for mealtime. If you want to create an environment that stimulates conversation and dancing, you’ll want to optimize other areas of the venue to create additional seating areas. Ideally you would want both indoor and outdoor seating options for a winter event.  


Space for Activities


Every event planner knows that a large event must have activities and things to do. Make sure you check out the venue for areas that can be transformed into activity areas. A large open field is ideal for hosting a festival or craft fair with live entertainment.


On-Site Catering


An event space with on-site catering is a win for you. Let the venue take care of the planning, while you do the hosting. Make sure your guests are hydrated and happy with snacks and drinks available throughout the event. If you’re planning on serving a meal during your event, Southfork Ranch offers an in-house food and beverage staff perfect for any type of event, from picnics to VIP dinners.
