Weddings/Event Rentals

 

Folklore Village offers a lovely picturesque setting with a rich history, rolling hills, and beautiful prairie land for your special event! We can host your wedding, family reunion, vow renewal ceremony, meeting, large party, or get-together.

"We were fortunate to have such a unique place as Folklore Village to host our monthly Memory Café.  Participants loved meeting in beautiful and inviting Farwell Hall.  Staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and meet the needs of our participants.  It was a joy being a part of this community and supporting a treasured community legacy."
