wedding showers, baby showers, birthday celebrations & more

A wedding anniversary party is a great way to celebrate 25, 30, 40 even 50 years of being married and in love. All anniversaries are huge milestones that should be celebrated with the ones that you are close to.

As time goes on, people are investing more time and effort into baby showers. However, we realize that can be stressful, especially during a pregnancy. Our smaller venue, The Coop, fits up to 54 guests and offers an excellent venue for baby showers. In the off chance that you want to host a larger shower than that, our pavilion can hold up to 200. However, most guests will choose the smaller venue as it’s more fitting to the event.

There’s plenty of beautiful scenery around you as well. The rolling hills of Hershey are on full display at our venue and our fire pit area allows you to relax and take it all in.

We’re here to guide you along the way and make the event setup as seamless as possible, but we’ve also included some tips below should this be your first baby shower.

Celebrating a birthday may happen every year, but that doesn’t mean the birthday party has to be celebrated the same way every year. Whether it’s a milestone birthday for a child, a family member, or a close friend, birthdays represent a time to celebrate someone’s impact on others.
