    Beautiful space for an affordable price!

    The Bowden Community Hall is a modern and neutral space that serves as the perfect blank canvas for hosting a wedding and really making it your own. The days leading up to your wedding are stressful, but dealing with Kim Urichuk with the Bowden Community Hall definitely helped alleviate some of the pressure. She was eager to answer any questions I had throughout the planning process and assisted me in any way she could. Kim helped me find a safe shuttle from Bowden back into Olds, she took measurements for decor purposes, and she met us on multiple occasions so we could view the hall. This venue is perfect for those who want flexibility in planning their wedding reception. The hall is available at an affordable weekend rate (Friday at noon to Sunday at 4 p.m.), which helps with decorating time and any other prep you need to do. The hall also allows you to bring in your own caterers and liquor, so you can use whomever you want for the meal and bar. There is a brand new commercial kitchen stocked with all the dishes you need (less wine glasses). There is also a brand new sound system and projector built into the hall for those running a slideshow during their reception. For onsite accommodations, camping is available with hook-ups (hook-ups are a small fee). If your guests wish to get a hotel room instead, Olds or Innisfail are only 10 minutes away and Kim can help you organize an affordable safe shuttle. The Bowden Hall is a gorgeous space with brand new amenities and an excellent Coordinator. I looked far and wide for a suitable reception venue and I am so happy that I found this one!

    Bowden Hall Wedding

    The lady who deals with the hall is very nice but she told us a lot of stuff was included and then 2 weeks before the wedding told us we had to pay. Things like the kitchen ($25/hr to use) the shuttle service ($300+ - this one annoyed us a lot being in Bowden and no taxis so we were blindsided by that)

    She also didn’t give us our damage deposit back so after a week I messaged her and then had it returned in a few hours. Makes me wonder if they weren’t going to return it.

    Bowden Community Hall's reply:

    Hi Katie, thanks so much for your review, we always appreciate feedback to help make our service better.

    Just to clarify, we did not charge any additional fees for the kitchen use, as you can see on your final invoice payment. The kitchen and use of all facilities of the hall (except RV parking) are indeed covered in the hall rental cost. So if you have paid additional fees for this to someone else (your caterer, etc), please contact them directly to resolve.

    In regards to the shuttle cost, please refer to our email conversation on June 3, in which I confirmed what the cost of the Kinsmen Shuttle would be. The Kinsmen handle all of their own scheduling, as indicated in our email conversation on May 22. At any initial site visit to the hall, potential renters are informed that there is shuttle service available but that it is an additional fee. The cost as never been included in our rental fee.

    I do apologize for the delay in getting the damage deposit back to you as your contract states 5 business days. Our treasurer was away so we were unable to process. In future we will make arrangements to ensure the renters get their deposits back within the 5 day period.

    We wish you both all the best and thank you again for using the Paterson Community Centre Bowden!
