Celebrate your commitment with a wedding ceremony at Dubuque’s Historic Five Flags Theater, an elegant and beautiful backdrop for your special day.
Saved from demolition, the historic Theater in Dubuque has been restored to its original 1910 grandeur with crystal chandeliers, Baroque styling, and vintage surroundings. Imagine your guests entering this elegant space to watch you walk down the aisle to meet your soulmate on stage. The theater is on the National Historic Landmark Registry,
Take advantage of the variety of spaces in Five Flags for the bride and groom before your ceremony. For total privacy, use the underground walkway to the Holiday Inn. After your vows, greet your guests as a couple in the Theater Lobby with a champagne toast!
The Five Flags Theater’s prime downtown location provides hotel accommodations, dining choices, and reception spaces, all within walking distance.
The Five Flags Center can accommodate a wedding reception for 20-700 people in downtown Dubuque. You might be asking yourself, “How can they do that?”
We’re glad you asked.
The Five Flags Center has a number of different locations to hold your wedding reception depending on your needs and budget.
– The Five Flags Center Ballroom (200 – 500 guests)
– Five Flags Arena Promenade (100 guests)
– Five Flags Center Bijou Room (20 – 50 guests)
– Five Flags Theater Stage (50 guests)
The Five Flags Center Advantage:
Five Flags is unique compared to traditional wedding venues. We do not have any exclusive partnerships with local vendors for venue rentals. This means you are able to source your own caterer, wedding cake, & decorator.
We are located in the heart of downtown Dubuque. The Five Flags Center is located at 405 Main Street – across the street from Holiday Inn, two blocks away from Hotel Julien, and there are bars and restaurants within walking distance. This is a convenient location if you are expecting a number of guests from out of town.
We are a blank canvas. The Five Flags Center Ballroom is created by hanging black curtains in our arena near Gate C. You can create a reception however you want within this space. See the photos above to see how the ballroom is set up in three different ways.
We want your day to be unique, like the two of you. Call for a site visit today, and start planning your “happily ever after”.
