Featured in Minnesota Bride and named “one of Minneapolis’s most unique wedding venues” by Lavender Magazine, The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park is the perfect spot for your wedding, especially if you and your new life partner love the outdoors! The amazing trails, bridges, and skyline views will make a beautiful backdrop for your photos no matter the season.

Start your celebration in one of our several beautiful outdoor locations for ceremonies – from the narrow pathway lined with tall timber columns along the building’s south side, perfect for a small ceremony, to more private green spaces of the park.

After the ceremony, bring the beauty of the park inside to the celebration. Our reception space, the Great Hall, has Douglas Fir beam structures and ceilings, beautiful custom wood tables, and two entire walls of windows that enhance the natural feel of the venue. There is also a grass lawn adjacent to the outdoor patio, which provides a wonderful area for guests to enjoy outdoor games.



“Caleb and I were the first couple to use the space for a wedding, and we were so happy with our experience. I’m pretty sure we had a lot of specific requests and The Trailhead staff were responsive and helped us with everything we needed. They were willing to work really closely with us leading up to our wedding weekend, and on the day of the wedding, the staff was on top of everything. And they are just the most lovely people on top of that! Definitely would recommend this beautiful space and this lovely crew to help put on your big day. So lucky to have this in the city!”

– Emma

“The Trailhead building is newly built and has striking architectural features. We opted for this site because of the unique design and the ability to have an outdoor space that was covered from the elements in case of inclement weather. After dinner, we danced the night away with friends and family.”
