    Excelsior: An Event Space for Every Occasion

    Cultivating an unforgettable event is no small task. Often times, it’s assumed that sophistication and design are limited to weddings, but that is far from the case. Every event deserves to have careful thought and planning, even those Monday morning work meetings. 

     

    With its extravagant interior and dreamy decor, Excelsior is known for its gorgeous weddings, but this historic Downtown Lancaster venue has so much more to offer. Built in 1852, Excelsior holds both value and character. The building was vacant and falling apart until Kelly and John Dantinne envisioned the beauty it could become. In 2016, Excelsior made its grand entrance into the high-end event industry. With all its magnificence and wonder, Excelsior continues to produce some of the most exclusive and coveted events this city has to offer.

     

    Although it’s known for its grand interiors, with a variety of event hosting, Excelsior provides the perfect location for any of your upcoming events and gathering needs. Some events Excelsior can accommodate include but are not limited to:

     

    Corporate

    Whether it’s a holiday party, one-year operation anniversary, closing contract commemoration, or any other momentous work occasion, what better way to celebrate than with a party! Show gratitude to your clients, members, and employees by hosting an unforgettable event complete with the finest food Lancaster City has to offer in a modern, yet rustic, venue.

    Excelsior provides ample space for large company meetings or parties, like CARGAS's Annual Summit Event.

    Milestone

    From anniversaries to retirements to birthdays to baby showers, there’s always a reason to throw a party with family and friends! Why not celebrate these occasions with a little extra sparkle? Make your loved ones feel even more loved with a customized party experience they’re sure to never forget.

    The venue provides gorgeous indoor and outdoor spaces.

    Meetings

    Don’t worry, birthdays and anniversaries don’t hold a monopoly on parties. Who says your quarterly account meeting has to be in the office? Treat your employees, clients, and executives to a breath of fresh air (and maybe some fresh coffee and bagels) by hosting your next morning meeting in Excelsior’s beautiful, yet practical, event space.

    At night the venue transforms into a lively center of activity!

    Socials

    There doesn’t always need to be an excuse to party. Sometimes you just need to break out the champagne and celebrate those small successes. Host a one-of-a-kind social gathering in a one-of-a-kind event venue.

     

    Galas

    With its dedication to social impact, Lancaster City has no shortage of incredible nonprofits fighting to make a difference each and every day. As a nonprofit, it’s imperative to let the community know just how much they mean to you. Show your supporters and donors just how grateful you are for them with an unforgettable experience that will not only resonate in their minds but will also pay tribute to your organization’s incredible work.
