Elegance Meets West Texas Flair at New Venues

Not only is Lubbock home to Texas Tech University, a variety of attractions, a unique selection of nearly 1,000 restaurants and much more, there are plenty of places in the city for groups to hold meetings and events. During the past 10 years, Visit Lubbock has facilitated more than 4,000 conventions or events, from corporate board meetings to the 10,000-attendee FFA State Convention, and from family reunions to memorable weddings.

In fact, the “Hub City” recently welcomed two new wedding/event venues to the scene that offer both elegance and West Texas flair:

Red Barn Ranch

Red Barn Ranch is located in a serene country atmosphere just 10 minutes south of Lubbock. Here you will find the best of both worlds: five lovely acres of well-groomed, quiet country surroundings, yet close enough to the city for easy access to other amenities. Red Barn Ranch features a large 40’ x 60’ red barn, which consists of metal construction and heating and air conditioning. The concrete floors are great for hosting a wedding or a special celebration and can accommodate up to 200 people.

Venue on Broadway

Located in downtown Lubbock, the Venue on Broadway is an ideal setting for weddings or other miscellaneous functions. The facility has recently been renovated and includes a caterer’s kitchen, reception room, courtyard and additional meeting space. Renovations include new carpet, paint and curtains. The facility features state-of-the-art audio/video equipment and seats 250+ in capacity. When a larger space is needed, it converts to a sitting area for round table tops that can be used off the main reception area.
