About Mennonite Heritage Village
Couples who use the museum for their wedding will have the opportunity to hold their special event in the Auditorium or Summer Pavilion (seasonally) with banquet space for everyone invited to feel comfortable. The warm atmosphere is the perfect venue for celebrating this occasion. Mennonite Heritage Village offers two historic churches and historic buildings with park-like grounds for photo opportunities. Mennonite Heritage Village is located in Steinbach, Manitoba, off highway 12.
Facilities and capacity
The Auditorium offers warmth with the high cedar beams of the vaulted ceiling creating a beautiful backdrop, while the Summer Pavilion presents a more modern feeling by mixing the concrete and cedar with six glass overhead doors. When opened they create an "open-air" feeling. Both offer seating for up to 200+ guests. Historical buildings are available for rent, including two historic churches: The Old Colony Church, which seats 180 people and the Lichtenau Church hold 80 people. The grounds cover 40 acres and offer multiple rental locations suitable for outdoor events.
Event services include rentals for ceremony and reception, as well as equipment. This venue offers:
Hotel accommodations are available less than four minutes away and include the Days Inn, and the Sleep Suite Motel. Restaurants are also less than four minutes away and include Jay’s Cafe, Village Green Restaurant, and many fast food options.
Enjoy a tour of the Mennonite Heritage Village and view several exhibits on display. The museum includes an art hall that features local artists, history of the Mennonite Village from the 1870s to the present, and exhibits that feature topics relevant to the Mennonite story.

After my original venue fell through two days before my wedding I called mhv and Stacey was wonderful. She helped me out so much and was friendly and awesome to deal with. I definitely recommend this venue. It’s gorgeous and the people are great! It ended up being way better and more beautiful than my original venue.

The guests loved the venue ! The summer pavilion is beautiful, large floor to ceiling windows let in lots of light and can be opened right to the ceiling which was perfect for dancing inside and out. The guests so enjoyed touring the museum before and after the ceremony. The staff went over and above, answering emails, very accommodating. super friendly and fun to work with.

All the staff were super friendly and answered all questions we had. They made sure our big day went off without any issues. The venue was gorgeous, the wedding package was very fairly priced and the grounds are gorgeous for pictures. Stacey Sawatzky made this day perfect from day one. What a great lady to work with. Thank you all.

Roger, the main contact for bookings, was great. He helped us figure out configuration and general set up of our event. The MHV had decorated for Christmas and he had the presence of mind to inquire whether we wanted them to keep their Christmas decor up for our wedding. We took a peek and it was perfect. We had a warm winter wonderland in their beautiful building. The reception room has vaulted wood beam ceilings. The caterers had lots of room to work.
This venue is so special. If you're into a historical location with great summer photography options and a whole lot of character, you've found just the place.
