Or Pleasure

Visitors step back in time and experience rustic charm when attending events in Hangar 2, an original 1929 hangar that served as the first airport for the City of Sweetwater.  Although not climate-controlled, hangar doors can be opened to overlook Avenger Field as well as aircraft on the patio.  Convection heaters and coolers will take your guests minds off the weather.  Hangar 2 seats up to 350 guests dependent on event needs.  Pricing begins at $500/five hours. 

For more formal events, Hangar 1 is an excellent choice.  Museum exhibits provide the setting for your guests as they dine, mix, and mingle.  For a high impact effect, aircraft can be placed in the adjacent plaza.  Our prep kitchen makes catering services a breeze and several other amenities will make your event beautiful. Hangar 1 seats up to 300 guests dependent on event needs.  Pricing begins at $1,250/five hours.   

When renting either hangar, outdoor spaces can be incorporated and food trucks are welcome.  Professional catering is required for all events where food is served.
