Drew Hester proudly owns and operates Willow Event Center, nestled in Cincinnati’s Westside on Colerain Avenue. Formerly known as Wonderland, this charming venue underwent a complete renovation in early 2019, emerging with a fresh and contemporary ambiance. Boasting ample space and a convenient parking lot, Willow is the ideal destination for your upcoming event.

Inside, guests will revel in the spaciousness and modern charm while accommodating up to 300 for corporate and social events, and 250 for weddings. The outdoor deck, complete with a picturesque gazebo, provides the perfect setting for ceremonies for up to 135 guests or delightful cocktail hours beneath the evening sky. Surrounded by scenic grounds featuring a serene double pond and majestic trees, Willow offers enchanting photo opportunities.

With its blend of elegance, affordability, and versatility, Willow Event Center stands out as the perfect choice for hosting your next memorable event.
