Located on the beautiful, sprawling campus of Eastern Oregon University, the Gilbert Event Center provides a large, flexible space for any ambience you envision for your wedding. The Gilbert Center’s wood beamed, arched ceiling adds a unique architectural touch to the space helping to add a rustic, more inviting sense to your ceremony or reception. The space’s open feel provides a blank canvas for you to create a personalized setting for your wedding.

The space allows for plenty of room for a dance floor in order for you and your guests to dance the night away after your romantic ceremony.
