Plans announced for Event Center to be built in Wayne


Business leaders and early-stage investors have announced plans for a new event venue in Wayne.
Final plans are underway for the construction of a first class event venue to be available for weddings and receptions, concerts and dances, corporate events, trade shows, school events, conventions, private banquets, meetings and outdoor events.
The privately owned, 13,000 square foot venue will provide enough space to accommodate over 500 seated attendees for large events, while also providing additional meeting space outside of the main ballroom.  
Negotiations are currently underway on several location possibilities.
“We are planning to not only host local events, but also draw in new events to Wayne,” said Josie Broders, project founder. “The building itself will be a destination showpiece that our community can be really proud of.”
The building will celebrate the unique style of a local business, Sand Creek Post & Beam, with the overall design of the venue being carefully planned by local architect Jill Brodersen. The venue will be a contemporary, classic barn style with high-end finishes.
A full stage and sound system will be available, along with his and her dressing rooms. The venue will boast large outdoor patios, pergolas and stone fireplaces for outdoor events and wedding ceremonies.
Additionally, the building will have large accordion style doors to provide an indoor/outdoor feel for events, while also serving as an entrance for cars and equipment for shows and trade events.
Projected date for construction completion is set for fall of 2017.
