The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre is a wedding venue located in Banff, Alberta. The recreation centre takes its architectural cues from the surrounding forests and mountains with its glass and wood details.

The venue, surrounded by magnificent views of Mount Rundle and Cascade Mountain, offers plenty of chances to enjoy the Rocky Mountain scenery. A perfect setting, featuring a great choice of event spaces with varying capacities, The Fenlands is ideal for indoor and outdoor events. No matter the setting, the venue is surrounded by wildlife, and it is not uncommon for there to be sightings of deer, elk, bears, and more traversing the landscape.

Facilities and capacity

The Fenlands Concourse venue is available from May to September. The lounge, Meeting Rooms, and outdoor ceremony locations are available year round.

If you are holding an outdoor ceremony, The Fenlands Meadow is ideal. The secluded space can accommodate up to 200 guests and the facility has ample parking. The Fenlands Concourse, which overlooks the Meadow, is a spacious and modern hall that can accommodate events of up to 200 guests.

The Fenlands also has a spacious and comfortable lounge with bar facilities, ideal for hosting cocktail hour functions, social gatherings, and receptions for up to 80 guests.

The Fenlands is also home to two beautiful and spacious meeting rooms which can be used for bride and groom preparations or for small elopements. The meeting rooms can accommodate up to 40 guests (available year-round)

Exceeded my expectations

I’m so happy that we chose to have our wedding at The Fendlands! It is an absolutely beautiful venue and is very affordable as well! Jackson and Dave were both wonderful and the receptionist was also very helpful! The communication was great and we knew exactly what to expect thanks to Jackson’s advice and help. We reserved the Meadow and the Lounge area and our guests were mesmerized by the beautiful surroundings! The wood beams and floor-to-ceiling windows provided amazing views of the nearby mountains. It’s also outside of the busy downtown area so there’s not as much foot or vehicle traffic. They have a private lot for event parking which is free which makes it so much easier for guests! We had a lovely wedding and reception and we would highly recommend this space to other brides/grooms looking to find an affordable mountain venue.
