The Hankinson Community Center, which opened its doors in 2011, is owned and operated by the City of Hankinson.

This beautiful event venue is a perfect mix of historic and modern. It was created by renovating three historic Main Street buildings and adding a new structure to form a facility to accommodate both large and small events. Special care was taken to protect the exterior Main Street facade and restore many of the original features of the buildings including exposed brick and tin ceilings. It was made possible with the help of many community volunteers and donors who contributed thousands of hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars to this project.

The Hankinson Community Center is the perfect backdrop to create your dream wedding. From intimate and cozy to queen size and grand, timeless or trendy, it is a unique venue for your big day.
