Inspired Events Happen Here

The historic Turnblad Mansion and contemporary Nelson Cultural Center are the perfect venues for weddings, corporate meetings, private parties and special events. Since 1929, the Turnblad Mansion has been the backdrop for some of the most romantic weddings and spectacular soirees in the city.

With the addition of the LEED Certified Nelson Cultural Center in 2012, brides and event planners have many options – from traditional to festive forward, and from ceremonies in the Courtyard to parties in the sleek, modern Larson Hall with its adjacent promenade and rooftop deck. Come visit our venue and see how your dreams can become reality with the help of ASI’s on-site catering division, Slate & Stone.
