Planning a Wedding? The Owensboro Convention Center Has Your Special Day Covered, Rain or Shine!

Outdoor weddings trended heavily in 2020 and with the beginning of Spring wedding season now underway, that trend looks to continue. If you’re looking for an outdoor wedding venue that is sure to impress, say “I Do” to the views at the Owensboro Convention Center.  

Make your wedding an experience by tying the knot at the Kentucky Legend® Pier over the Ohio River!  There’s nothing like soaking up some sunshine on your wedding day, and with the scenic natural backdrop, your outdoor wedding on The Pier can be a fun and picturesque event!

Choose from one of our Wedding Packages and enjoy the ease and convenience of our in-house services, including catering, decorating, and more!  Don’t stress the details on your wedding day – that’s our job 🙂

Plus your out-of-town guests won’t have to go far to attend your ceremony.  The venue is adjacent to two newer downtown hotels – the Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront and the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Owensboro/Waterfront.

And if Mother Nature happens not to cooperate, the Owensboro Convention Center is a highly customizable facility that can offer an inside option for you and your guests.  Choose rooms with panoramic views of beautiful downtown Owensboro!

Enjoy the same amenities if you need to book a rehearsal dinner and wedding reception!  Create an exceptional dining experience for your guests with our custom catering menus – from healthy dishes to comfort foods and decadent desserts, we have selections sure to please the palate of every member of your wedding.  A variety of bar options are also available, and ask our event staff about offering a specialty drink for your guests!

For all of your wedding and reception needs, the OCC is the place to be!  For more information, please visit or call 270.687.8800 to inquire about available dates, current COVID precautions, pricing, and to arrange a tour of the venue.
